    Hope braided hose for GRX brifters

    Has anyone tried using Hope braided hydraulic hose w/ Shimano GRX brakes? I use braided hose for all my mtb builds and the similarity of lever feel between the front and rear is near identical...the rear is just a tit slower than the front.

    I'm looking for a clue on what fitting to use at the brifters so it won't damage a carbon bar...the Goodridge swivel type may be slightly too long than the Shimano plastic hose fitting.

    TIA

    Never use the b-word around CXWrench or he will flog you with a used br..........I mean shifter cable.
