I'll have to call specialized and aske them what barrels are compatible.
It's sometimes easier (well most of the time) to adjust the dérailleurs operation while actually riding. With my meat fingered hands, I find it difficult to turn those adjusted on the downtube. I much prefer using something like a Jagwire in-line adjuster.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
