OpenCycle UP hydro Brake hose issues

Anyone here own a Opencycle UP gravel bike? I have an issue on the brake hose being pinched,looks like it caused when steering the handlebar,any other idea what might have caused this? Thanks for your help.

Other than that, how do you like the bike? Looks like a good choice for something that handles like a road bike (i.e. more lively than a strict gravel bike).
