When it comes to bike workmanship, I'm a bit of a dunce, so please excuse this silly question:
I'm picking up a new bike soon with Shimano Deore Rapid Fire 10spd. While testing out the bikes I jumped on a Kona Kahuna which has the dual-thumb SRAM X5. I only did a lap or two around the block but I instantly fell in love with them. Being able to keep an extra finger on the handlebars feels a lot more comfortable.
Here's the silly part - If I replaced the shifters on my bike from Rapid Fire to SRAM X5, do you have to also replace the entire font and rear derailer? Is the whole thing one big system, or can you just rip off the rapid fire shifters and feed the cables into the X5?
