@ shimano STI riders: how to adjust derailleur during ride?anaerobic Max

just wondered what option there might be. some roadbikes have those adjusters mounted between two cables next to the STI, some do have them attached to the frame. i know i can adjust the RD via the screw on the derailleur. but you can't stop to adjust it while racing. and what about the front der.?

any thoughts?

In a race you just deal with it or swap bikes. You're going to be going too hard to be able to fiddle with in-line adjusters.

Off the course you can use in-line cable adjusters.

...I don't know where he got these things (he would only smile when I asked); they seem smaller than the typical barrel adjuster. They work like a champ.

you can set adjusters there. They sit after the first cable housing.You can reach down, it's just behind the headset and adjust. It's one of the main reasons for this routing.
thanks, i'll try and let you know if it worked out right (nm)anaerobic Max
