Unless you need the tube permanently bent into position, I wouldn't worry about it. The tubing bender will just bend with the weight of the hose.

I was just trying to figure out a very similar problem. The bender is a simple, cheap, and rather elegant solution.

Thats what I went with:



sorry for the dark pic, but it worked perfectly for 8 bucks. I cut one side of the soft steel piece, bent it back 180 degrees to make a nice way to mount it to the pipe.

I used some 3/4" plastic split wire loom like this and zip tied it where I needed it. Prevents it from kinking for only a couple bucks.
