Doing this means the only way for the rim to grab the lines is if you taco a wheel and the rim sidewall grabs them. I spent quite awhile finally deciding on this routing and after many rides where full travel has been utilized constantly, happy to report that speedo and brake lines are intact with no signs of wear!

Happy trails dude!
I run mine on the inside, and added some zip-ties to the fork legs where they meet the fork tube to make sure they refrain from flexing inwards towards the tire under compression and also to prevent chaffing of the line against the tube. 3yrs now, it's worked great.

I think Pyndon and others run them on the outside without much issue, but I suppose the worry is snagging the lines in that config...
