Bikes: too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter
Either is fine, depending on your preference. I tend to adjust from the RD and leave the frame adjusters most of the way down but with room in either direction for on the bike fine tuning.
There are adjusters on the frame because some RDs and most FDs don't have adjusters. Consider yourself better off than those whose frame lacks the adjusters (as many do these days), so you have no barrel adjuster for the FD. Two may not better than one, but it's far better than none.
