It depends what brakes you're using. If you've got hopes with the 'mini' lever you can't turn it upside down. If you've got avid's you can. Not sure about other manufacturers though.

All Hayes HFX models come with levers that can be mounted on both sides of the bar. Check out http://www.hayesdiscbrake.com

Cheers

I think what Polaris is trying to say is, when you use levers with an oil expension part on the top of the lever (when it is normally mounted) you can't use that lever on the other end of the bar.
