    Hi,

    I have a 2001 LeMond Zurich. This model has shifter cable barrel adjusters that thread into brazeons
    on the head tube. One of my barrel adjusters snapped off. The threaded portion is pretty small (5
    mm? I don't have it here to measure it), smaller than most and with flat sides, but fairly long. My
    LBSs can't find an equivalent, not even something that will work for a quick fix.

    Anyone know where I can track down one of these buggers?

    Thanks, Dylan

  2. Those parts should be orderable from any TREK/LeMond/Klein dealer. In the meantime, you can use a
    standard cable ferrule in its place. You won't have the adjustability, but you will at least have
    something that works in the meantime.

    The cable stops that come with a set of Ergo cables have two 5mm adjusters in the package. Since a
    lot of new frames have built-in adjusters on the frame, any LBS should have a pile of these around.

    Either try the adjuster from the left shimano cable stop for STI, the Record/Chorus one with the
    aluminum holder or the larger one for Centaur, the one with the plastic holder-one of these will
    fit. Yer bike shiop outtta know this, IMO-

    Ultegra and Dura-Ace shifter sets also come with a pair of barrel adjusters. Not sure about 105's.

    (A tip I learned from Sheldon: lubricate the threads!)

    Yeah, I'm a little disappointed. But one is a LeMond dealer and they said they'd try to order the
    part, at least. Thanks for your reply.

    Thanks, I'll check into that.

    I think I'll do something like that, at least for now. It'll be a rainy weekend, but I still wanna
    get out there and ride :)
