    brake hose length for medium hd please

    hi, I'm still waiting for my mojo hd to arrive but I've got a few bits ready to build it up when it finally gets here, I'd like to re use my hope race m4 brakes but I'm not sure if the hose for the rear will be long enough for my medium mojo hd frame. could someone please measure theirs, roughly how long, I don't need it to mm,
    cheers

    Mine is about 56 inches and is cutting close on the short side. Good luck!

    thanks for the replays guys, I got my frame today but my hose is too short, can't decide if I should sell my m4 race brakes and try xtr trail brakes,
    or just get a longer hose for my m4's
    or sell my magura mt4's on my cannondale flash, buy some hope race x2 and use the new hose off that on my mojo hd, the one I have is long enough for the flash, I like the hope race levers and modulation, never felt like I needed more power than the m4's either, and I don't like the magura's much, flappy levers, all plasticy and flexy with rattly BAT adjusters

    Keep the Hopes and get a longer line. M4's are awesome.
