SHOVEL RESEARCH Brass Barrel Adjusters (Pair in tin)

$38.00 USD

Five or six years ago Sal found a vintage set of aluminum DT barrel adjusters at a bike swap. No brand or maker’s mark, standard threading (!), and she has yet to find out who made them despite many valiant internet searches.

These brass adjusters are an homage to that vintage set. Brass is an excellent choice for threaded bits as it will turn as easily years from now as it does today. In her opinion these are the best looking barrel adjusters you can buy, and she hopes they provide you with decades of particularly pleasant cable tension adjustments.

Now machined right here in Portland, OR. Revisions for v2 include new engraving and wider cable channel for reduced friction.

Comes with a pair (2pc) inside a lasered tin, which you can re-purpose later for beeswax (nature’s loc-tite) or your favorite ointment.
