First off, I don't really need to change my brake hose, but I can't stand the look of the big chunky Shiamno easy hose connector, so I'm switching to normal hoses - and cutting down the hoses to the correct size whilst I'm at it. In addition to this, I need to build up an Endurace frameset for my other half (I assume that uses the same cable tie hose grommet in the down tube...
Does anyone know how to replace the rear brake hose in an Ultimate/Endurace?
Seeing as the brake hose goes through a cable tie (connected to a grommet between the bottle cage bolt holes), if I were to take out the hose, how am I to re-thread the hose through the cable to tie to prevent the hose rattling?!
My current idea/solution is to thread a steel brake cable through the hose, remove the hose (leaving the brake cable routed internally) before installing the new hose over the old cable and therefore through the cable tie.
I imagine I may need to change the cable tie (as the one currently installed will be too tight to get through a new hose), but I have no idea yet!
