Chorus front mech adjustment

I've had a Chorus groupset on a Van Nicholas for a few months. It has now just occurred to me that there does not seem to be any way of adjusting the front mech. Should there be a barrel adjuster on the down tube or am I missing something? :?


  • Most road frames have two down tube barrel adjusters, one for the rear mech and one for the front. The rear mech usually also has a barrel adjuster. The front does not. I'm surprised your bike doesn't have any.

    I assume you've got a bit of cable stretch now and want to adjust the mech slightly?

    Edit: Not sure which Van Nicolas you have but the couple I've looked at have the barrel adjusters next to the head tube.
