    in-line brake cable adjuster?

    Hey all.

    I rarely use the in-line brake levers on my Cross bike. So i took them off.

    Oops. Now-- how do i trim my brakes? Now i have no way of doing that! (I can't believe that i didn't anticipate that little issue. D'oh!) Upon reflection, i realize that i DO need some sort of barrel adjuster-- i've needed to adjust the cable pull during wet, muddy races that rapidly wear down the brake pads.

    Any tips? Thanks.
    Despite the fact that I constantly recommend Kool-Stop brake pads-- no, I don't work for Kool-Stop. (Although their factory is just a few blocks from my house!)

    I ride drop bars off-road. (The excellent On-One "Midge.")
