Although this article is very in formative, I am going to have to disagree with one point. That point is this: The spring loaded shifter cap serves only one purpose and that purpose is to hold the shifter in the socket. This prevents the shifter from coming out of the socket. Each gear has a synchronizer. This in itself is what "allows" and "holds" the gear into placement, not the spring loaded cap.
