hey there. Installing disc brakes and wondering how to route front brake hose. Should it go on the outside fork leg or inside, between leg and wheel?
thanx...

Usually down then inside between the fork leg and wheel, then to the caliper. Typically a hose clip at the top of the fork leg avoids interference with the tire as the hose wraps around the leg. YMMV, there can be exceptions to this...

mine is a little different because Manitou puts the guide on the back of the leg. So I go from the back then zip tie onto the brace and around the right side of the frame with the hose sweeping back to the left lever.

Maybe a little different but it keeps the cable close to my bike and has plenty of room for handlebar swing. so far so good
