    Sure, If you want....

    Those shifters have been around for 2 years.
    They also re-introduced canti brakes so you could have a complete build.
    While none of it is specifically designed for MTB it would all work fine.

    It is intended for a flat bar road bike.
    I bike; therefore, I work

    Doesn't Matter

    It'll work fine for a flatbar MTB application if you want.

    Dura-Ace barcons are intended for TT use but plenty of people see fit to combine them with Pauls mounts and use them off road.

    .
    Brakes could be a problem- from the location of the pivot it does not appear that they will work with linear pull brakes (v-brake) - would have to be some type of cantilever brake or maybe the road version of the avid mechanical disc brake.

    Yup, Cantis

    Campagnolo also has re-introduced cantilevers as has Shimano and Avid still make some.
    No problem there.
    They work just was well as linear pull brakes; Cantis disappeared do to marketing and Shimano...just like the square taper crankset.
