Need to replace the damaged hoses anyway. Any reason not to buy some bling silver braided Hope hose and attach with Shimano olive?

Goodridge kits looks to only be available for $130...Nope.

Discovered Shimano hose has a 2.1mm inside diameter, while Hope/Goodridge look to have a 2.0mm inside diameter.
So, likely too big of a difference to use Shimano hardware. All well, no bling silver hoses. :'0

i run hope breaks on shimano hoses. maybe this information helps you a bit.

Ah, very interesting! Thank you. I would have thought the 2.1 hoses too loose for the Hope hardware.
The investigation is reopened

i used them in an emergency when i damaged my front an rear cable one day before an enduro race. they are still on now since 10 months.

when i got my new dh frame i also used shimano für the rear breake. so i run 4 hope tech3 e4 and 3 of them on shimano hoses.

Yeah I ended up putting some on there once I sorted out the fitting hardware, running cherry.
