Not really, but i need a longer rear hose so that i can route it properly as it's currently too short and missing out the guide neer the bb and it sticks out loads as the suss compresses. And you know me, why by bargain basement when i can bling it out for only £9.98 a meter Wink

I may be wrong but I'm not convinced you can just put Goodridge Braided hoses onto any body elses end fitting kits. The Braided hoses are thicker for starters

Well they do a kit for Juicy 5's on the Hotlines site so should be ok. Or do you mean i would have to use the Goodridge lever and caliper hardware instead of the existing Avid bits? I'm going to get Downlands to fit it anyway so if i need different hardware they can order it in. Just ordered the hose now anyway.

Are you able to buy stuff directly from Hotlines. You can select stuff in the basket but i looked for ages for the checkout button to no avail. Got from the CR site in the end as it's finally working again.

Do it yourself Andy!  You'll save a few quid and can borrow my bleed kit again if you don't still have it anyway

Its the Banjos & metal fixings that screw into the reservoirs & caliper that you may need to change to suit the diameter of the hose. Let me know how you get on because Im currently thinking of changing to Goodridge on my Juicy Fives as well but can only find a fixing kit for Juicys Pre 05 & mined are the 2007 version.

I have identical pairings of hope mono m4 front and mono mini rear (ones that have just been updated), one with goodridge hoses, one without, cant tell any difference between them but the braided ones look better and will be stronger in a crash and less likely to be cut
