Brake hose replacement?

El Saltemontes

Recommended Posts

I bought a set of deore 535 disc brakes from a hubber but the hoses are too short. I am about to order a few meters of Fibrax brake hose from CRC


Is the fibrax hose good for Shimano brakes?

Do I also need to order the olives and inserts, if so how many?

When I undo the holding nuts at both the lever end and the caliper end do I then just pull the old hose out?

Is this something that an inexperianced home machanic should be looking at?

I will recommend Goodridge hoses - they are great.

If you want any hoses and just make them work, it will prob be easier to go via LBS, only pay for what you use

Alternatively give HEL a try. A good alternative to Goodridge and you can get hoses cut to length and shipped to you to save you the fuss of having to sort them out yourself ;)
