Bar risers and front brake line bend

I have bought some 30mm bar risers for bike, but it really gives the brake cable a sharp bend by the lever. Anyone else had this issue? Did you just not worry about it? Anyone found a work around to remove the bend?

I have two inch risers (ROX), on my bike and there is no problem with the cables. Rox suggest to remove the rubber spacer/washer from the casing that holds the cable into the frame. This allows the cable to be less taught and definitely is a must! When you pull the black spacer from the holder, it will sit on top of the original casing - this allows more freedom on the brake cable and should solve your issues.

Likewise, I have the 30mm sw-motech with no issues at all.
