The title says it all. Wondering if it is possible to use top mount brake levers in addition to standard levers, or do people only use that set-up with canti's. Do they work with V-brakes for that matter? Thanks.

I am no expert but I would think if you used a cable actuated disk brake set up for road levers (Avid is the only one that comes to mind) that you would be ok. I hope I am right as I want to do this with my bike this spring.
