How to trim the FD?
I'm running ultegra everything except a compact FSA crank.
When i'm in my highest gear, (big ring small cog) my chain rubs against the outside of my FD. The adjustment screw is already maxed out. If i physically pull on the chain a little bit it moves enough to clear the chain, but if i try to use the shift lever, it just moves a bit and then goes back.
Is there any way to adjust this without unscrewing the cable and tightening it? Maybe that wouldn't be too hard but i get the feeling that if i were to unscrew it i'd be opening a can of worms and would never get back to where i started.
Thanks for any ideas,

ok stupid me couldn't find the barrell adjuster since it wasn't attached to the deraileur.
disaster averted... sorry for the stupid question.

You shouldn't have to use the trim on a straight chain line, only when you're shifting to smaller cogs and the chain touches the FD. Just a thought, i'm sure you fixed the prob with the trims on the downtube cable stops.
