Okay.
So looking at hydro line ratings for hydraulic discs - there doesn't seem to be much difference in ratings. Heck - my hands are never going to be able to generate the sort of power required to burst the line, so why do higher quality lines (Goodridge etc) seem to alter the feel so much?

Great question, Stun! Was thinking of joining the bandwag0n... But my regular hydro lines are still holding up well.. Anyone knows why should we go with the flow? I'm in the tropics right now.

TIA!

Most of the time, it is because the system has just been freshly bled, and you are feeling the benefits. It is argued that once the Goodridge lines have been nice and used, they will expand almost as much as stock lines. Personally, I have not felt much of a difference between stock and braided lines to justify the cost. I do like that the braided lines are more flexible though.

Another "benefit" is looks.. a lot of people get them because they look cool...

One good thing though, is that the Goodridge fittings are reusable (although I don't disassemble my lines enough to see this as an advantage personally)
