    If you have the three speed hub, it matters. The 3 speed hub will not work with anything but SRAM shifters. In SRAM shifters, I believe it requires a SRAM 3.0 shifter. Everything else can be swapped out though.

    I have a SRAM 9.0 derailleur & shifter on my wife's BikeE which is awesome and trouble-free.
