Brake hose replacement.
#1
Anybody use goodridge brake hoses? is it really worth the £60 or is there any other cheaper alternative brands?

I have Goodridge hoses and I noticed I big difference after fitting. Levers felt harder and less spongy, and they don't expand at all unlike normal hoses which can reduce breaking power. I definitely think they are worth it.

If you can wait a couple of days I may be able to get them cheaper for you. I did have an account with one of the importers but its been a while since I've used them so may not be active... I also have to remember what they are called  Big Grin Big Grin

PM me what you're after...  colour, brake model etc & I'll see what I can do

That sounds really expensive and doubt its worth £60 unless your brakes are really mushy? Maybe just bleed them first. I have them on my Hopes but they came with them 2.5yrs ago so dont know what they are like without....they were only £10 more per brake when buying new hence why I went for them.
