I have a 2009 giant anthem x3 that came with Shimano M486 brakes. I purchased an xtr m965 rear caliper and a Bontrager hose with connectors. The hose and caliper look like this. See picture. My brake lever now has the cable going straight in using a hose end that is straight and not a circle connector. What can I do to connect the bontrager hose to the m486?
At this time, one end of the new hose has the circle connector attached and the other end of the hose is open. The sent me the cable ends to put on myself. Do I need to purchase another brake lever or can I get this hose to work?
