    Disc brake compatibility

    I'm building a very cheap fat bike and have a lead on some avid bb5 road bike calipers and discs. Would these be compatible with my mountain bike-style levers and sit on my frame ok or will I run into any issues?

    Road BB have a different leverage ratio than mtn BB. No idea how they actually function for mtb use tho...
