In theory could I use a set of broken Shimano STIs on my fixed wheel if they still pull the brake cables?

they are much more comfortable than the Shimano brake only levers.

    Well if only the gear shifters are broken, yes of course. I used a set on a downtube shifter equipped bike for a couple of years before turning it into ss.
