    Formula Hose Question

    Hi,

    I have new Formula The Ones, and I was thinking about putting some heat shrink tubing on the hoses for the extra bling factor.

    One question though... if I remove the hose from the lever and am not cutting it do I need any new fitting hardware or can I just put it back together as it was?

    Thanks,
    G.

    Heat shrink tubing=bling? I don't understand. Please explain what I am missing out on.

    It just allows me change the colour without having to buy new hoses. So it looks... cooler.

    LOL that's funny.

    You don't need new hardware. Put a bit of silicon grease on the threads before tightening the hose back on to help keep the humidity out.
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    Doesn't sound very bling to me, but you might have fancy heat shrink.

    Can you post when done, I would like to see this!

    Thx

    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?
