After riding my roadie with drop bars for nearly a year I find I am still not comfortable with the bars, finding it hard/almost impossible to reach the brake levers if I am down in the drops.Also my hands start to go numb soon after starting off. I have tried a shorter stem and can reach the bars better but is difficult to activate the brakes, so I feel unsafe in certain conditions (steep downhill or lots of traffic)
Can I use any style of MTB shifters & brake levers with the roadie gears & brakes if I change to a MTB type flat bar?

I don't think

These work better for road bikes. I have some.

There is also a 10spd version now.
