Braided Stainless Steel Brake and Clutch lines Group Buy.
Written by ridearoundth... on 4/29/2010 at 05:14 pm

Hi all,
Just figured I would bump this thread and ask that if anyone does try these to
post their experience. I am really pleased with the lever feel after this mod.
I have to put it up there with tapered roller bearings in the headstem as far as
improvement to the ride.
Just to be clear, I have no connection to G&J. I had asked a while back about
this and no one had set anything like this up I figured I would.

Hope it helps someone.

Enjoy the ride,

Oliver in Central PA

to prime your lines after installation. Using a turkey baster, get a piece of
hose that fits the bleeder and the baster. Use the baster to force fluid up the
line. Start at the furthest caliper then the closest. It took a few minutes to
force the fluid up the lines but way less than it normally takes to bleed from
the top side.
