" Good in terms or Blink...Not performance! "

The Review
For Blink Only!

Strengths
Blink!

Weaknesses
To me there is nothing "Fantastic" about these hose. Cost too much for some over rated comment! In some cases...Its performance might be as good as your stock hose, as the matter of fact Stock hose might out perform and cheaper to replace. Brakeset is done up by a great mechanic before I post my comments. If you think it justifies for a 5% to 10% kinda performance increase for that price tag... :)

" It's just psychological... "

The Review
Maybe the spongy feeling of hydros are eliminated. But thats not something I can't live with. I've been riding hydros all my life without these cables and still feel fine.

In my honest opinion. These are just overated. Hyped up luxury goods. Very much like calvin klein underwear.

Strengths
Looks damn strong as its metal?
Adds an additional " i got more aftermarket parts on my bike than you" factor.

Weaknesses
So bloody expensive.
Adds unnecessary weight to the bike I think?

Improves the feeling of any brake, lever feels alot firmer especially for the rear brake, hence enhancing modulation.

The Review
After the change, goodridge immediately provides more braking power and better feel of the braker levers......

If the price is not a factor, it's a part worth to upgrade if you feel that your current braking power is not strong enough......

Strengths
- Braking power increase almost instantly.
- Hose expansion reduced.
- Brake lever feels firmer.
- Also available in longer lengths for DH forks.
- Comes with goodridge decals.

Weaknesses
Pricey !!!!!!

Still cuts the paint job of bike frame even with the new rubberised insulate......

The Review
This is a totally DIY set of brakes hose or you can get your LBS to install and bleed it for you. When i got the hoses, I saw the thick piastic hose wrapped by stainless steel braids, I thought to myself "This is good shit~!" The initial setup was abit laborious are you're requires to screw banjoes in by hand until you can't get them in any more and use a plier and a 8mm spanner. Once set up correctly, it increases the performance of my XT disc brakes by a mile and the only mushu feeling you get is only the flexiness of the brake lever when you squeeze too hard.

Strengths
Lesser expansion of brake hoses
Siffer feeling
Looks good practically on any bike

Weaknesses
Pricey
Pain in the ass to get the olives and banjos in.
