Is it ok to use a Nexus 8 speed grip shifter with an Alfine 8 speed hub?
The Alfine shifters seem to be all trigger shifters is that correct?

The Jtek bar end shifter claims to work with both Nexus and Alfine 8 speed hubs, so I don't see why other shifters wouldn't.
A comment on this review of the Alfine hub backs that up: "Apparently the Shimano Nexus Inter-8 twist shifter can be used with the Alfine hub if you want to avoid endless button-pushing."
