    Hi everyone


    I’d like to share a TrailOut LAB video. This one teaches you exactly how to make steel mesh brake lines for your bike/car in an inexpensive way.
    Probably very useful on these rather improvable Chinese bikes



    "Common (rubber) brake tubes will not maintain their inner radius when the oil inside them reaches a certain temperature. Hard riding will stress the brakes making the whole line (disks, pads, oil & tubes) over-heat resulting in inconsistent or even lack of braking power.
    Needless to say that this won't ever happen with a steel mesh braking line"


    Disclaimer: This alteration is NOT street-legal in some countries. Please use at your own risk and preferably in off-road or race vehicles only. Not TUV/DOT approved. For your information only

    Interesting video. I don't think I'd have enough faith in my DIY skills to do this my self and you can buy these for about 20 from eBay but this could be useful for vehicles with non-standard length hoses.

    But as kind of a DIY addict, I loved doing this mod ^^
