- Shimano GRX – swapping brake hoses over
Morning all – looking at getting a GRX set-up for my gravel bike, and the best deal I can find on shifters/brakes is a European set up (LH front brake/RH rear) rather than the usual UK set-up – has anyone had any and if so, is it a reasonably easy swap over of hoses and a re-bleed or is there some hidden horror I might not be expecting?Posted 1 month agok1100tMember
Mine came without the hoses attached to the hoods, only being attached to the calipers. Assuming this is to enable internal cable routing…
Make sure the internal olive hasn’t rotated during transportation, and that you have a 8mm spanner for doing up the compression bolt thing.Posted 1 month agoscotroutesMember
Yeah, there’s a high likelihood the calipers and levers are supplied using a J Kit, so you can just connect them up however you want.
If not, it’s a fairly simple process and doesn’t normally involve a bleed.
* edit; the J Kit is a mid-hose joint, there is a short “tail” of hose at the lever end.Posted 1 month ago
