    Dumb brake related question

    What are the little plastic doo-hickies called that keep hydraulic hose in the braze-ons? The little split round ones. And where can I get them online?

    Not sure about online, but your LBS should have a jar full of them. We just give them away.

    Yep that's it. I got some but the don't have the flange on both ends and they seem to work loose. I actually got them in your neck of the wood's I believe.

    A little bit of electrical tape helps to keep it snug.

    Let me know if you can't find any. I'd be happy to drop a couple in the mail.

    I just cut a strip out of an old tube, wrap it around the hose push it into the stops. They come out about once every 12 months, usually from rough treatment on the rack.
