    In-line Barrel Adjusters Recommendations

    I just recabled with the Dura-Ace cables. My bike came with (at least they looked like) in-line barrel adjusters. After taking them off and looking at them I can't see how they could possibly adjust anything...almost looked like a barrel adjuster case with no moving parts inside.

    Anyways...do they make in-line adjusters with some sort of indicator that allows you to see the position of the cable? I have no mounts for typical adjusters for the down-tube, so I need to score some in-line adjusters.

    thanks,

    I would be interested in some kind of indicator type in-line adjusters also. The only ones I have seen, of which I have a couple of pair, do not have indicators. It would be handy for knowing which way you are moving the cable. My DA STI came with numerous little plastic parts for different types of installation situation, but none of them seemed to be adjusters. I may not have looked at them closely enough.
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
