install complete. couple questions

Finished the install today, rerouted every cable, and had to tighten all bolts several times. of course, I don't own a torque wrench yet (but it's coming).

I am wondering how hard I should try to pounce the bars to test them.
Also, if you look at the front brake cable in the op, it runs the neck of the forks. Will it rub through the coated, braided cable?

Aside from those thoughts, I'm pleased with the install. Next step is to replace the e-torx bolts. Anyone know what size Allen bolts to get (my searches came up with different answers)? (same question as lilmonkey above)

Long story short, this tutorial made the job much easier than if I struck out on my own. Thanks again!
