He goofy, the barrel adjusters are not compressable,if the adjuster is out to its limit, screw it back in,
and take the slack out at the derailleur end.
there is an adjuster on the rear deraileur, so it is likely redundant.
But none for the front derailleur , just taking ths slack out of the stretch may be good enough..
better ? the mech has taken the skill out of the rider , and made it a mechanical process.
getting the clicks in the front and the movement of the rear mech synched
is better done hanging the bike up so you can see the results of the adjustment
It is rather a reach to the front of the bike,.. the barrel adjuster on the RD is there so you can see it's effect.
