1st option... you need the glass to keep the PEI flat. The relative flatness of the Trick Laser spreader is good, but not good enough for a consistent layer height.

First option gives you flexibility and assures a flat PEI installation. Flexibility: you can easily remove the bed and flip it over to print on glass, etc.
