Campy cable stop tension adjuster question?(6 posts)

Campy cable stop tension adjuster question?Velocipedio
Jul 24, 2002 2:46 PM
I'm about to upgrade my Major Jake cyclocross bike with Campy Centaur 9sp components. Everything seems in order except I have no idea what to do with the cable stop tension adjusters. These are designed to bolt into the downtube, but I have nowhere to do that with my bike, as the cables are routed through split stops on the bottom of the downtube [fig. 1 below]. I know that there must be alternatives, since my road bike has the adjusters on stops on the headtube [fig. 2], but I'm wondering what my options are. This is what I think, but I'd REALLY like some guidance here...

1. Forget the adjusters. My Kona doesn't have them now anyway. I'll be able to adjust the RD at the derailleur, but I won't be able to adjust the FD.

2. Get different barrel adjusters that fit the split drops. This sounds like the best option, but I don't even know if such a beast exists, and the space is so close in there, that the dial heads would have to be pretty small...

Does anyone have any ideas that could help me? All help will be greatly appreciated.

There is a adjuster that falls into category 2. Get your LBS to order BR 4040 or get br4041 which is an inline adjuster that goes in the cable.
Doh, those #'s are from Quality Bicycle Products.curlybike
