    Hope SS Hoses Installed . . . WOW!

    Here are a couple of pics of the Hope SS hoses installed on my SantaCruz Superlight.

    I wrenched it myself. Not too bad of a job. My only recommendations would be don't get in a hurry, measure many times, cut once. Start with the rear so if you mess up the hose or something you can shorten it for the front.

    I cut the hose with a pair of Shimano cable cutters. I've heard a dremel with a cutting wheel works good too, but I was too lazy to get mine out of the shed.

    Enjoy,

    Chris

    initial parking lot indications are all I can give. So far, things are looking favorable. The hoses don't have any flex that I have noticed so far. Once I can get on a trail, I'll post a better response.

    If you are refering to the hose guides that are used to keep the hose running along the top tube, yes. The outer diameter of the hose is the same as the original equipment black plastic hoses.

    The connectors at the end of the hoses are noticably smaller than the original connectors. This give the hose/brake a much cleaner look.
