Just looking for ideas or suggestions on this one. I'm stripping my Surly Disc Trucker of the derailleurs and replacing with a Rohloff hub. Stripping will leave the downtube cable adjusters (one on each side of downtube) that are on the Surly frame. Not needing them for cable guides/adjusters anymore will leave them without a job. So the thought was just to remove them. But that would leave a very ugly boss exposed to rip flesh off and snag things. So it looks like my options are to just leave them on, remove them and leave a boss exposed, cut them off (don't want to do that really) or look for some different options.
Any suggestions or helpful hints?
