I got a singlespeed-mish-mash-of-parts project goin' here. I've got a rear mtb mechanical disc brake and a front road caliper. Is there a brake lever set that will do both? Or do I have to buy separate levers for each brake?

I'd say shimano V brake levers would work. My current levers are V Brake and are being used on mech. disc, but prior to that they were being used on 105 road calipers, on my flat bar road bike.

I know nothing about disc brakes, but Tektro makes a flat bar brake lever that has both short pull and long pull notches in it. I have used them on linear pull brakes and road calipers, just by changing which notch the cable was in. Sorry I don't remember model #, but you could test out the short or long spot for the rear, and use the short notch for the front.
