    Gold housing brake line upgrade

    Planning to upgrade my Juicy 7' housing to gold lines. LBS is charging me this

    "The lines are $160 ($110 for the set and 2 bleeds @ $25 each) and the gear line adds only $40" ---Priced in CDN dollars

    Is this a fair price?

    Thanks for any help

    I don't think anyone knows what "gold lines" are. Maybe give us a link to the manufacturers website?

    How about this set of gold hydraulic hoses for $14 from Jenson. It's enough for both front and rear brakes.

    Those gold lines would look sweet on my RM Vertex 29 SE!

    If you want to improve performance and bling on a juicy7, forget the brake hose and housing. Too much investment on an old brake, get the dualie lever from Twenty6 instead. They improve performance and looks great.

    i bought some white brake housing from jagwire and it is good as anything out there,well not steel braided, but you get what im saying,and easy to do if you can bleed your own brakes.....
