    XT Brake Line on Bandit 29 question

    I just got a medium Bandit 29 last week and I am going crazy not being able to ride it. I am swapping my parts over from another frame. The 2 sticking points in the build are the rear axle (resolved) and the rear brake. I am running Shimano XT BR-M775 disc brakes and the rear line is too short. No big deal I thought; just buy a new hose and install. The longest Shimano makes is 170cm which is still too short. Anyone else have this issue? What are your fixes? Please don't suggest another brand of brakes. Thank you but I love my Shimanos. So far it appears I will have to use a third party hose like Jagwire. Thank you for any help and suggestions.

    Shimano SM-BH59 hose does come in 2400mm too, it's just a matter of finding it online.
