but you can keep your road bike shifter/brakeset.
Depends on the parts you intend to use .
It would be positioned so you can easily shift and brake as you ride
IF you have the Brake Lever separate and the shift Lever in the bar end , yes ..

But a Road STI type Brifter is really unweildy, if not Vertically mounted .


I have used a Nitto Mustache bar setup , old cable out the top road brakelevers + Bar End shifting.
