For friction you don't need a barrel adjuster. If you (optionally) want to get rid of all cable slack, set the L stop a little too tight, tighten the cable, then back off the L to where it was.
Thanks. Re-adjusted it is working better--especially while riding as opposed to on the work stand. I guess I'm capable of more finesse while riding.
