Not in my books it isn't

You can run any front mech with any shifter as well, it's only the rear mech's that you have to be wary of, although Sram Attack & Rocket work with Shimano rear mechs, it's the X series of Sram shifters that only work with Sram rear mech's

Your bike will be endlessly falling over due to poor balance. Get a Shimano shifter.
