    Formula R1's and Jagwire Hyflo hoses

    I'm in the process of building up a new bike and have bought some R1's, but I've decided to make orange my accent color. The R1's come in black, red, and naked metal. I was thinking maybe switch the R1 hose with Jagwire hose. I've read of one bad expirience. Is anyone else able to comment?

    Also, I'm thinking that I might buy some orange screws and bolts to replace the red ones included with the brakes. Also, thought I might have some of the red parts that aren't available in orange anodized orange to match the rest of the bike. Can anyone think of a reason this might be a bad idea?

    Check the hose diameter, some after market are smaller than the stock, it looks good but tax on the performance. I've been using the Jagwire Diy color housing on a few of my bikes and I love it. Thinking about the Hydro hose but too lazy to fit and bleed them, may be later.
