I wish mine were so easy! It's a Raleigh Competition GS and they broke/twisted the adjuster off flush on both ends! Since these are chromed long Campy dropouts I hesitate to take a chance on screwing it up. I have a cobalt drill bit set which might actually be harder than the screw but haven't tried it yet.
