    Hope brake lines vs Goodridge

    Does anyone know if the I.D and O.D. diameter of Goodridge braided brake lines is/are the same as the Hope braided brake lines? I have heard that Goodridge makes the Hope lines but I can't seem to find any info in regards to I.D., and O.D..

    Also will the Hope brake line hardware work with the Goodridge lines and vice versa?

    I can't tell you if the Hopes are made by Goodridge, but I have used both kits and I can't tell the difference except for the accessories.
    The lines and fittings seem the same, but the Goodridge lines came with some little yellow rubber bits to fit over the hoses and protect the frame.
    The Hopes just came with the fittings and lines.
    Hopes come in silver/clear, but Goodridges can be had in black, clear/silver, white, or carbon.
    (last purchased in 2008-things may have changed)

    If you have got standard plastic hose it will be 5mm diameter.



    The braided hose is 6mm diameter.

    I can confirm that both have the same ID and OD. My Mini M4s came fitted with Hope braided hoses and I have purchased a Goodridge braided hose this year because the original was too short for my new bike. The Goodridge hose works fine with the original Hope fittings.
