I need to shorten my reverb hose. I’ve watched the SRAM video online and from what I’ve seen, it’s not going to be an arse-ache with fluid all over the place or is that just the video being optimistic and it will piss fluid all over my kitchen floor?
Yeah its simple enough. Barb isnt threaded just ribbed (not sure if that’s what you call it) so its just a case of pushing the hose over it. Its just Make sure you get the hose properly seated on the barb when you reterminate or it can let air in and lock the system. You may need to bleed the system if any air gets in. Should only be the odd drop of fluid coming out when you cut/reterminate.
I’m not sure i can remember this as i don’t think it was in the vid but make sure you screw in the hose at the seat clamp BEFORE sorting your cable routing as if not you’ll have to do re route. Sounds stupid but that’s what i did.
great, ta, sounds like it should be threaded so the lever end barb should unscrew rather than need cut out like on the vids. I carefully measured lenth of old hose and took pics of the routing, so fingers crossed 🙂
