Yeah, I used to have a computer on a mountain bike set up like this.
Wrap the excess cable along the brake cable housing, then when the housing ends at the noodle, then move the cable to the structural arch on your fork's sliders, to the other side of it, and from there run it down to where you want it.
It eats up a lot of cable ties, but this specific mounting minimizes the amount of cable wrap you have to do (thus keeping the housing a bit more felxible than if it had 20 extra wraps), as well as keeps the cable from having any bad encounters with the fork as it's compressing.
