I don't, but a friend of mine does, and he loves it.

Your problem doesn't have anything to do with the bike brand. The cable is too short. When the handlebar is turned completely to the left it's kinking the housing. You need a bigger loop of housing.
I've had the same issue twice with my OPEN. Did a longer hose fix the issue ?
Sorry Im Resurrecting this tread,, anyone here still using Open up/upper gravel bike and having issues still with the kinked hydro hose?
