    SIR9 brake hose length

    Ive searched and haven't come up with an answer. I'm building a L sir9 and looking at some takeoff hydros. Can anyone give me an idea of hose length you are running? I may just have to put everything together first and measure. Thanks.

    On my Medium Rigid SIR, I'm running 53" in rear and 31" in front.

    According to Niner's specs there's less than an inch difference in Wheelbase & TT length between the Medium an Large so I think you should be able to get away with at 31"-32" front hose if you're running an suspension fork and 54" to 55" in the rear.

    You could also call Niner and talk to one of the tech experts there to confirm.

    Thanks. I'm going to running rigid too. The easy thing is to just go with bb7s.

    Hoses aren't hard to trim ya' know. Changing them out isn't either. You can get a normal set for around 25 (I think) or a Goodridge braided stainless set for around 50.
    Livin' the dream.
