    Hunt down a super flexible HDMI cable and you will be OK, Freely have some in their store. There are also some other options out there. If you get a long cable say 3' then you can run it down the side of the carbon tubes, and attach it with zip ties, making it pivot near the tilt cage bearing. This will cause it to have the least noticeable impact on your balance.

    I have both USB cables to control my camera and HDMI. The HDMI is one of the super flexible kind either from Freefly or someone else. Very very tiny cable so it has almost no impact on balancing. The USB cable is a bit more, but I found as long as there is enough slack it doesn't seem to impact balancing. Both are setup to run along the tubing.

    Do a Google search for: hyperthin hdmi
    The main web site is: https://www.hypershop.com/search?q=hyperthin&type=product

    For USB cables, perhaps: https://www.pololu.com/product/2072

    Hope this helps -- I just did a Google search for: usb thin flexible cable
