hi....i have the inline barrel adjusters that are installed a few inches after it leaves the shifter? is there a certain position i should default them to when installing new cables? or just leave where they are?

Typical to unscrew them just a turn or so from bottomed out.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
