Barrel adjusters on downtube...(5 posts)

Barrel adjusters on downtube...Crashd
Mar 6, 2002 6:27 PM
Has anyone run into a frame that doesn't have a place on the downtube to put the barrel adjuster for the front derailleur? My frame only has the regular cable stops, which aren't compatible with the barrel adjuster in the dura-ace component kit. any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I ran into the same problem when building my Y-Foil, no place for barrel adjusters. My LBS solved the problem with JagWire Inline Cable Adjusters which he can order from his QBP catalog, part #BR4041. The link below will take you to the Y-Foil Group photos, click on the 'Inline' photo for a picture of the adjuster installed.
Could you repost this link? Getting error message. nmscottfree

The photo section might be for members only. If it is you could register, no charge, and have access to everything on the groupsite.

Try this in the meantime:

Then click on 'Photos', then click on 'Dave's 'Foil', then click on 'Inline d'. That should get you where you want to go.

Sorry for the trouble, Dave
