    Juicy Five Brake Hose

    I find there are a lot of very small droplet of brake oil around the hose. (like the water droplet on the coke can after you just bring the coke from your refrigrator)
    There is no leakage from either the lever or caplier.
    It seems to me the oil comes from hose itself.
    What's the problem and how can I solve it?
    Thank You for your advice.

    Mine are doing the same thing where the hose goes into the lever. It looks like condensation. The brakes feel okay, but I was going to rebleed them.

    I remove the droplet by a piece of tissue. As shown on the tissue, I find the droplet is yellow in color. WOW, DOT fluid??? What's yours?
    My brake also feel ok.

    Mine have the same thing when it was installed, worked well during the initial rides, after 2 weeks, leaks are evident on the reservoir covers on both levers. Then during the rides both wheels seized , had the shop bled it last week, works well during last weekends ride.

    Hope it stays that way
