    Re-use Guide T brake hose with rear disc brake upgrade?

    I recently purchased Guide G2 rsc brakes to upgrade my Guide T brakes that came stock on my bike. Iíve replaced, shorted the cable and bled the front brake fine, but Iím wondering about just using the same hose for the rear brake to avoid having to swap internally routed hoses. Does the Guide T brake use the same Stealthamajig adapter, or should I use the new hose? Any tips for swapping the internally routed hoses out?

    Does the old hose have the correct fitting at the caliper end?

    It's easy to run a new hose too. Use a little red SRAM coupler to connect the two hoses and use the old hose to guide the new hose as you push it through. (don't try to pull it through with the old hose). If you don't have a coupler, you can use a ~2' length of brake cable stuck equally into the old and new hose to guide it.
    What, me worry?
