    Nope, the shifter wouldn't move the cable far enough for the mech to move the chain to the next gear.

    and it would move the mech TOO far. Sram numbered shifters are a 1:1 ratio and pull 2 times the cable that shimano do with their 2:1 ratio.

    Sram Attach and Rocket shifters are shimano compatable.
