Hi again, I've got newbie question fever! :)

Can anyone advise if it is possible to swap over / remove the shifters whilst leaving the gear cables in position? You know, like you can with brakes. Does the cable have a nipple on the end that you can "Un-attach" from within the shifter body, thus making the whole transplant easier.

None of my Shimano shifters would allow that, but I've got older rapidfires for the most part, not sure about SRAM but think they're the same as well in that you need to undo the cable at the derailleur end and back it out through the shifter, they don't have that nice slot in the lever body like brakes do to let the cable slide out....
