As far as a comfort thing, then yeah.
But, if you're going to be moving from mtb style brakes to roadie style brakes, there's also the issue of pull ratios (different levers pull the cables different amounts, so the calipers at the other end work accordingly).
But, the Earl with hipster-style drops with the small levers on the top tubes would prob be OK... IF it's comfortable to ride. (Just don't go messing with the in-built bottle opener!)
