Where can I buy some barrel adjusters online for my Kaffenback?

I think I am looking for something like this:

Campag downtube adjusters would probably be OK for that. Just unscrew them form the brackets and put them in your frame

These might do it, as Pete said. Hopefully the threads are the same.

Hmm, I was hoping this would be a cheaper part. It will probably be a couple of weeks before I can get to a proper bike shop.

The shimano DT stops will work for you, I think. I recently unscrewed the adjuster bit (watch out for the spring which will try and leap out and hide somewhere) and put it in a very similar braze on to what you have pictured there.

You can have these (free)
if you want them. They're from an old set of alloy calipers, the lock-nuts might clean up (slight surface rust) or you could replace them. The adjusters themselves just need a bit of a clean up. If you want to PM your address I'll post them to you.

I've got frames with similar set up. If they're the same as mine, then Campag ones don't fit. They need to be an M5 thread, which the Campag aren't.
I got some off Jackson's in Leeds. They post them to you. Well, they did for me.
