Hi everyone, looking at upgrading my brake hoses.

I have Tektro Comps at the moment.

What tools/parts would I need to fit new hose and how many of each part. eg. - 2 olives 2 ferrules 1 length of hose.

Would I be able to reuse the parts out the old hose into the new hose.

I have found the Tektro hose kit but at 22 quid...

I am aware I would also need to bleed the system again so should probably get a bleed kit, would I need to get Tektros own brand bleed kit

    most pointless upgrade ever.

    look at new pads rather than hose. or larger diameter rotor.

    most kits come with all the bits you need.


    ps dont forget the cost of more fluid and a bleed kit or parts to make a kit.

    Getting new pads when current ones wear out and a new rotor on the front at the same time but until then.

    So is it alright to reuse all the bits off the old hose
