    maybe old metal hood style levers.

    My friend runs one.

    he has it facing backwards and is positioned about the same place you mention.

    On my fixie I have an RL-576. They look like this (this is a 720 as I run on my road bike):



    I have it in the middle of my bullhorns, but similarly could be mounted at the end if I so desire.
