Fit with inline adjuster or not?

Currently not fitted but front shifting is nice.
If a little more tension is required then obviously easier with an inline if adjustments are ever needed.

    You've answered your own question.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.

    The R7000 and 8000 front derailleurs now have an on-board tension adjustment gizmo that effectively does away with the need for additional in-line or cable stop barrel adjusters.

    Have a check out of this YouTube video that explains the installation and adjustment



    The fist part is all about fitting an aligning the derailleur. At around 7 mins the cable tension device is described and instruction given on how it is used to set the correct cable tension.

    Nice one . The bike is built but is a work of art doing nothing for next 4 months months, cable bound to need adjustments
