I used Diacompe's Goldfingers on my flat.
I still use these on my chop-and-don't-flip-bar.
For my risers, I used these. I tried on flat bar too and they work fine.
I think these look small and out of the way of good looks of your bike, methinks.
The latter lever is good for another reason. Levers tend to take up a lot of handlebar space; so you cannot have narrow handle setup with some of them. I think you will have problem with Shimano ones especially. I had the lever you are talking about before and I had to get lid of them because them. You ought to take your measurement so you are sure the lever fits your ideal handle bar setup.
