Hope M4 quandary
Just purchased some lovely condition ‘old’ Hope M4s. All working as they should be, etc…………..but they have the 90 deg connector as shown below (part 14) and the way the disc mount is on my frame they just won’t fit 😡 so I need to get a straight connector.
Are these available, and if so, what size – 5mm/6mm? Been looking online, and there seems to be a multitude of options, and I’m getting confused!

If you’ve got pro levers then you have e4 brakes rather than m4 not that it makes any difference. First off, you can swap the connector position for the bleed nipple is that helps. Back the shroud nut off and have a look at the olive. If there’s a groove on it, it’s 5mm kit you need but for e4 my money is on it being 6mm kit. Just order a 6mm inline hose connector kit from a hope dealer.Posted 7 years ago
Works ok as is – but the hose guide is on the top of the seat-stay. So my OCDish nature means that I hate the idea of zip-tying it to the underside!
@Onzadog – yep, spot on with them being E4s. Was the only difference between E4s & M4s the levers? The actual calipers look identical.
@Xiphon – the bloke I bought them off had done a full strip, clean, new-seals, bleed, new sintered pads & new Goodridge hoses. Added to the fact they seem almost brand new anyway, they look lovely 8) Very in keeping with the retroish feel of the bike too…..Posted 7 years ago
