You mean the housing goes all the way through the headtube and the cable stop on the downtube won't accept a barrel adjuster?

Like this?

My first idea is that you can always use an in-line barrel adjuster anywhere you like, usually close to the ergo powers.

You can get away without a barrel adjuster at all, too. The RD has one anyway and the FD needs a little more patience to adjust, but it's not too difficult.

Yes the same frame but badged with a diferent name , gota love all of indavidual R&D claims, but at cost its worth it. I will take your advise though I would like to get a set of in line cable ajusters :)

Which part of my advice are you refering to, that you could use an in-line adjuster or that you can live without? :confused:

Maybe a pic helps
