    Just giving my bike a good strip and clean before fitting some new brakes. I’m a bit stuck, and husband is out riding.

    When removing the rear brake, do I detach the hose from the caliper or the lever?

    Thanks!

    If you can, remove the whole thing as a unit – with most bikes you can simply unclip the hose then unbolt lever and caliper and just take it all off as one. Less messy and easier to re-use. HTH

    Neither – don’t remove the hose unless you want to rebleed the brakes. Or is the brake hose threaded thru the frame mounts so has to be disconected?

    If so it doesn’t really matter which end

    The hose is threaded through frame mounts, so will probably do it from the lever.

    Thanks for your help, chaps.
