Afternoon fellow fettlers. Justed fitted an SLX set of brakes to my Fox Float 32 RL forks and found the hose to be way too short. Is this a common problem or have I got an overly short hose (oo-er missus :oops: ).

    it can be.

    depends on where you got them.

    as most OE brakes come with whatever size they were order with by the bike producers.

    while Aftermarket ones tend to be too long.

    Ahhh, lesson learnt on my behalf. Thank you for the guidance.
