Downtube cable stops lever and barrel adjuster
I'm upgrading a steel frame with STI shifters from downtube shifters. The cable stop set I have fits ok, but one stop has a small lever adjuster and the other a barrel adjuster. Logic tells me that the lever stop should go on the left for the front cable and the barrel adjuster stop on the right for the rear cable. However, having them this way round would leave the inner cables exiting too high on the downtube. They look correct the other way round leaving a nice exit angle for the cable inners. It just seems a bit odd having the rear indexing adjusted by a small lever that is easily knocked. Anyone know whether the lever stop should be used for the front or rear cable?
