    The things people say in their ads...

    I was interested in this auction in Australia:

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Shimano-xt755...d=p3286.c0.m14

    for a pair of Shimano 4 piston brakes until I read the description:

    "shimano xt 4 pot hydraulic brakeset used, but still at very good condition, pad is still have some left, they made by hope with stainless metal line. Runs dot 4 oil. Any question just call ray on 0422891575 or send me email.thank you for your looking and good luck on the auction,please do check my other bike item."

    Nice to see that he runs them with brake fluid, and believes they have Hope hoses.

    Yes, but these are the earlier 755s. The hoses in the ad are the original Shimano braided ones, rather than the aftermarket Hopes.
