Barrel adjusters for non threaded cable stops?

I have a 2004 OCR 3 and I am upgrading it to full ultegra 10s STI because i like the frame. My problem is that the shifting lever cables come with down tube shifter boss connections for the barrel adjusters on both levers, but my bike has no shifter bosses. My cable stops are not threaded so i cant use the barrel adjusters their either. So what are my options with this, do i have to get a new frame to work with or try to have threaded cable stops installed? Will the in-line adjusting barrel work with ultegra 10s shifters?

if you want barrel adjusters, find some long ones that will stick out the other end enough to screw a nut onto that side too, and just have an adjusting nut on either side.

You can also get some that go next to the STI hoods - they're easier to use too.

If you read the posts, they answer all your questions about the JAG adjusters.
