The thing to keep in mind with SRAM and Shimano is that they have a different cable actuation,so you must match the shifters to the derailleurs. If you use SRAM derailleurs,you can only use SRAM shifters. If you use Shimano derailleurs,use have to use compatible shifters;Shimano,SRAM,and SunRace all make shifters that will work. If you plan to use all SRAM parts,you'll be fine. As for cranks,cassettes,and chains,they can all be mixed(only Campagnolo is unique). Also,you'll want your gearing to be street;48/38/28 or similar for the front rings,with whatever range cassette you want out back(your Revel is prolly a MTB 44/32/22 to close to it).
