Getting ready to change handlebars. Current bars have 10 spd STI shifters installed. I have never installed a set of shifters before but I have replaced brake cables. I would like to avoid pulling all the cables completely out if it is possible to "loosen up" all the connections and be able to reach the bar clamp, slide the shifters off the old bar and then slide them onto the new bar.
Is that possible or am I stuck with complete dissasembly. Bike is only several months old so I don't need to replace the cables now and was hoping I could avoid that process.
