You could always just use an in-line barrel adjuster or it's just a matter of trial and error to get the cable tension right. You can do that by either pulling harder on the cable or by using the inner limit of the FD to sorta pre load the cable, if you know what I mean. It's a bit time consuming, but has always worked well enough for me.

A very swift looking combination indeed, it's missing that hipstamatic touch though ;)

If I were to make a pic like that it would be 'both white and slow' :lol:
