Lemond 853 barrel adjuster
 
Took home this 853 Lemond Zurich last night. A couple of minor issues, mostly paint and a bent derailleur hanger. The problem I have right now is that one of the barrel adjusters broke. The head and threads separated from eachother, but luckily the threads aren't stuck in the frame.

Where can I find a replacement? I don't need a cosmetic match, just something that will thread in and hold the cable.

BTW that's a 28c Vittoria Corsa on an Archetype in the Air Rail fork. Pretty stoked on that clearance.

Every downtube adjuster I know is threaded the same (M5), so any replacement should do. Here's one such option:

you should be able to use a shimano or campy cable stop there. just unthread the barrel adjuster from the cable stop and screw it in the frame.

Hell yeah. I had one in the bin and it worked perfectly.
