"Work" is a broad term. Yes it would work. You may like it, or you may not. Just getting rid of the linkages, cables, and pivots of the under-tank system will be a great improvement.

15mm for dual ATE's is way small. It will be significantly firmer, but much less responsive. Lots of lever input required. I think your two choices are 13mm and 14mm with this set-up.
