    Shortening a Goodridge brake hose

    I have brakes with Goodridge hoses and would like the shorten the front cable....

    2 questions:

    1.) what do i use to cut the steel line.....?
    2.) are all of the connections reusable once i take them off.....?

    I know with my old Hayes brakes whenever i disassemble i have to replaced a small fitting....

    I used a park tool cable/housing cutter. You will also need to strip back the plastic sheathing 11 mm before reassemby.

    Yes all fittings are reusable.

    It's a very easy job to do.
