Looking to buy a '99 trek 5500 or 5200. Anyuone know if it has a threadless headset (as newer model have). I'll probably need a longer stem and need to know if it will be easy to swap out.

Thanks

I've got a '99 5500. You can get a threadless adapter, though. I think that Performance sells one. Otherwise, you'll have to go w/a quill stem...

I have a '99 5200 and just this fall changed out the original headset (the entire top and bottom) for a King headset. I would not have believed the difference if I had not experienced it. The King headset is like not having anything - zero drag and riding no hands is easier than ever. mla
