I mounted them in the rearward position to move the bars back as well as up. I understand a 20mm straight riser brings the bars closer to you due to the rake angle, but I wanted to get just a little more upright while seated. I'll wait for Chad to play around with them before I make a decision. If the adjustable risers work with stock cables I just might give them a try. As for the brake line, you could get a Barnett's braided a few inches longer for not too much $$ I'd think. BTW, I mounted a set of Hepco-Becker hoops yeaterday. They went on like a dream, look great, seem to be strong as hell, even with the 1/4 turn mounts. Sweeeet.
