I bought a set of like new Code 5's from a guy in town. The front brake handle doesn't even reach the bar after the caliper is mounted

He claims that he did not cut the lines and they are factory length. I don't believe it because I only have a 36rc2 vanilla fork, not some 12" travel monster.

Should I call Avid directly or is there a better place to by a new hose kit? I searched around quite a bit and most places are either out of stock or want some crazy price for kits.
