Hi,

Its been a while since I've had to shorten a brake hose. I've ordered a new hose end for my Hayes HFX-9. Previously, it came it two parts, an olive ring you put on the hose, and a pin that you put in the end of the hose. Tightening the hose bolt backup compressed the olive ring and it formed a seal.

The hose end I received seems to be a different design, its one piece and it looks like the olive ring has been combined with the 'pin'. Is this correct, or am I missing something?

it looks like this one,



and before I had this,




regards
Rob

Out of curiousity, it is possible to reuse the new design; i.e. pull it off with plier, shorten the hose, re-insert it without risking leakage?
