hydro disc brake cable length

I have a set of hayes sole hydraulic disc brakes and I was just wondering if you can get a longer cable for them?

Of course you can, it's standard brakeline for all hydro's.

The real question is, why spend the cash on a new brake line when you can get some bb7's that are better then sole's.

Yah thanks I thought so. Well it depends on how much it'll cost to get a cable, I'm new to discs and I don't want to spend much money.

I don't know why people say Soles are horrible. Sure there not the best but they are better than bb7. I've ran both, each for a full season now, and soles are better than bb7 IMHO.

I've ridden plenty of bikes with Sole's, they are an insult to hydro's, I cant stand them.

The modulation sucks at speed, so does the stopping power, they seem to fade easily, and bad locking power under load.

exactly why do you need another brake LINE? Hydraulic brake lines do not need replacements unless you have a fluid leak. Speaking on the subject, my front line is TIGHT and I have decided to replace my Hope Mini hydro lines with some GOODRICH stainless steel lines in the future only because it is a tight fit, not b/c it's leaking

Meh their good enough for me, they havn't failed me so far, I'm sure there's better but these came with my bike and I'm happy enough with them, their the best brakes I've ever had.

Nah I've got no problems with my LINEs, but I want longer ones for more slack so my bars can spin 3's.

Yes, that's what I assumed he meant.

so you are telling me that you can spin you bars 360 degrees with brake lines and shifting cables attached? I would like to see that.

If you want to spin 3's, then you dont need hydro brakes, but cables with a Gyro. i dont know any hydro brake lines that will let you spin 3's without major problems in the future...they just weren't meant for that
