Hi guys,

Can't find any existing articles on this already, so, basically ive just bought some hayes stroker ryde hyraulic brakes (FYI Merlin Cycles £99.95 for the pair :shock: !) but the front brakes hose length is too short. How do i go about lengthening it, as i asked LBS and they said it was a half hour job, but there was a 3 week waiting list so i dont want to have to wait that long.

Thanks in advance,

    Sounds right for time for job but the waiting time is ridiculous. Try another LBS?
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Just buy a new hose and cut it down to size.
