    Ive just found a place selling shimano SS braided hoses for a fiver each!
    yoink, ordered.

    now, the horse needs to go somewhere behind this cart.

    they only had rears, and i figure, if im going to go with braided hoses to improve feel, running an extra long loop on the front is somewhat counter productive.
    can i use regular compression olives on braided hose? or is it a different diameter?
    i hear i can cut braided hose with a super fine hacksaw blade and a taped hose?

    experiences,advice and suggestions pretty please team ūüôā

    I just used regular cable cutter on my goodridges, cant imagine Shimano ones will need anything different.

    Are they the old XT hoses, with crimped banjo each end?
