    If you are talking about your Mu XL, it won't work because the 8spd Nexus Hub isn't compatible with that 9spd trigger shifter. (or a typically indexed 8spd trigger shifter). You would need an Alfine trigger shifter like THIS .. if you have a derailleur system, then you'd need a Shimano compatible derailleur (2:1) to use your item..
