    what do you think of the goodridge hoses are they worth the money> thinking of replacing my jucey 3 cables with some ?

    The sektors are great can't fault them I run the solo air version. Really plush and at a good price.

    The hoses are good, they do make a difference as they do not expand as much, just make sure you use a good quality hydraulic oil to get the best out of them.

    The clear hoses look great also

    Such a nice bike! Love those frames!

    Definitely something I'd consider if I ever decide to part with my current steed and build something a bit lighter and more AM oriented.

    Previous:

    I call BS on that... braided hoses are lovely, but standard hoses don't expand at all. I've run all sorts of outer and there are things that are far more effective than braided hoses for improving braking. If you've noticed a difference then it is much more likely to be contaminated pads or a dodgy bleed than the "upgrade" to braided hoses.

    (Disclamer: I've run lots of different hoses on lots of different brakes and it makes sod all difference other than aesthetics)

    I would disagree, used decent braided hoses and they have firmed up some brakes plenty add more noticble bite. And yes they were bled correctly before swapping :)
