    Hydraulic discs on tandem

    I want to fit hydraulic discs to our tandem (to replace the cable discs we have). It also has a v-brake third brake.

    How can I get hydraulic pipes long enough or connect two together to extend the length for the rear. So far I can only see hose reaching 1700mm Has anyone done this?

    Thanks

    Jaqwire hydraulic hose kits come in 3000mm lengths you have to buy the kit for your particular brakes and then assemble the hose together after cutting the hose to length for your bike. I see you are in Europe so you also may be able to find Goodridge hoses available there also check Chain Reaction Cycles as they carry those kits

    Thanks, that's great advice.

    Yeah, jagwire is what I use too. The hose and kit have been on our mtb tandem for a couple of years with zero issues. I'm getting ready to change over to XTR brakes and will use the Jagwire kit again.
