Are tools for mtb and roadbikes interchangeable?Gerbila

I'm a mountain biker looking into roadbiking. I like to do my own wrenching and put together my current mtb. I'm considering doing the same for my road bike and was wondering if the sizes of components on road bikes was the same as mountain bikes, or if a different set of tools was needed. TIA.

As long as your stuff is current.
I use the same cassette and bottom bracket tools for my mtn as I do on the road bikes.

you decide to get Campy for the roadbike. Then, different tools are required for the BB and cassette.
