    Help me pick out a barrel adjuster

    Hey all again. I was trying to install an old RX100 rear derailleur on my bike when I noticed there was no barrel adjuster. I found a site with some, but they're all the same price, and none of them are for the RX100 derailleur. Are these all interchangeable?

    The Dura Ace 9 speed or Ultegra 6500 assembly will work for you.

    You might consider an inline barrel-adjuster that installs anywhere on the cable leading to the rear-derailleur. I use these for front-derailleurs, and would on the rear if my RD's lacked one as in your case.

    The top two here are what I use - they work great:

    And here's one in action on my FD-cable:

    well he could use an inline but he still needs a housing stop on the derailluer. almost any shimano derailluer adjusting barrel will work
