cervelo internal cable routing and barrel adjusters

I just got done installing my front derailleur on my Cervelo Dual (Force shifters) without using a barrel adjuster. What a PIA. For future sake, are there any barrel adjusters that will fit into the internal cable stops with out hitting the frame?

Or will I have to go with a mid cable barrel adjuster?

Thanks

few tricks I've found that you can use when adjusting the cable tension for FD without adjusters

1. set low limit so it goes in as far as possible, affix cable as best you can.
2. set low limit properly. cable slack should be taken up.

Actually I found that setting the low limit without the cable first worked pretty well.

I've had the same frustration. While I eventually got it to work, it was a bigger PIA than it should have been. When I have to replace something, I'll add a Jagwire inline adjuster to the system. So, yeah, mid-cable adjuster.

I think Shimano has an inline adjuster as well.

I have Jagwire inline adjusters on my SLC. Works like a charm.
