    I just install them on my bike 8" in the front and 6" in the rear. They have an outstanding bang for the buck ratio!!! Got them for $95 and $80 respectively from www.universalcycles.com, though they didn't come in a box or with the bleed kit it's still a killer deal. Very good entry level hydro setup, plus comes pre bled and ready to install. Mine centers perfectly and stops very well, much better than the cable Hayes it replaced. My only bad comments are that the the rear brake cable is to long, lever reach adjustment screw sucks (*but I don't care since I don't re-adjust mine that often), and the lever clamp system isn't that good. But again at this price I'm not complaining.
