    stiff/too long Avid hydraulic cables

    I am installing some Avid XO hydraulic brakes on my Tallboy, and am having a bit oftrouble. The cables seem to be too long, and they are very stiff, making it hard to properly install the lines on the frame. Anyone else have this experience and if so, what did you do?

    Thanks.

    Cut them. Order a bleed kit because you will most likely need one soon after shortening the hoses.
