Barrel Adjusters?
Where can I get those nice barrel adjusters that one sees on most custom frames, some are brass, some might be alumimun, and all ahe subtantial metal 'bulbs' for a good grip.

All I find in the stores are the ugly ones with the plastic grip. This is for a Mondonico frame, I tried the Campy dowtube shifter adapters from the 2003 Record on the bike, but the threaded neck is too small to fit in the headtube bosses that are part of the lower lug.

I am looking for this, like this Zanconato that has an very similar head lug. Loose Screws does not cary them.

I think he is looking for the screw/brass part, not the sleeve?

You can get the screws and their little springs from Nova Cycle Supply:)
