Which "Electrical"?

I also did not like the angle of bend being transferred to the brake lines and cables at full lock with them routed behind the top clamp.
I felt that their lifespan would be considerably shortened by being bent to those angles on a regular basis.
I think that in a few years we are going to see "mysterious electrical problem on GSA equipped with rox risers" threads when the wires begin breaking from the stress!

The fog bracket was 3 bucks and speigler charged 60 bucks for the brake line.

63 bucks to do it right.
Curious..which electrical do you believe will be damaged over time due to the flexing/stress? Want to watch out for potential problems..thanks.
