    Goodridge brake hoses and Z1 review (initial)

    Hi all

    i am all sorted now. I just got my new goodridge brake hoses for my XT discs together with my Z1dropoff. I informed you earlier of the Z1 impressions so i ll just stick to the cables. These stuff is AMAZING. There is not a single millimeter of lever travel unused. The lever feel is totally different. Guys i just cant describe it....just get a pair and learn for yourselves....they almost feel like an electronic brake system due to goodridge hoses. For once...a story comes true....a company that said that will introduce F1 technology into mtb really did it....same cables as in F1 cars. ...no more comments....just buy.

    PS. The ETA started working properly.
    PS2. Add to that unbelievable lever feel 15-30% of more brake power for hope hayes and shimano systems using goodridge cables plus no pumping up.
    Where the skid marks stop...the tree begins....:D:D:D:D:D

    Its like a party in your brake cables and no inertia is invited!
    Give a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a night. Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Do you know if you can get these in Canada or the States. I may be interested...

    As for the ETA...congrats

    You've converted your XT hydraulic hoses to cables? Huh?

    That's what I though. Hence my confusion.
