I pinched the rear brake line on my juicy 5's yesterday just riding around the block. Stock routing on the Scream is not optimal.... Anyone know what the best deal on a replacement is? I know for hayes you can just buy the hosing by the foot. Where's the hookups for avid?

Lines cost $.

May want to consider a Goodridge or Galfer hose if pinching is going to be an issue.

I looked for a goodridge one but it wasn't apparent that they made on for avid fittings. Anyone know if its comaptible? I'm not to worried about it becuase I plan on routing it down by the bb instead of up top along the rocker this time but if it was around the same $$ i'd be down.

Replacement Avid lines are about 20 dollars. 2004 used a M8x1.0mm thread compression nut, 2005 and later used a M8x0.75mm compression nut. Make sure you know which line kit you got. The barbs and fittings are otherwise the same.

Goodridge rines are expensive and use proprietary fittings. Get the Galfer braided SS lines. Depending on the year your Juicy 5s were made, you may need to reuse the compression nut (just helps apply pressure to the fittings and barbs) from your old line.

It was just the first year Juicy 7s that used the M8 x 1.0 compression nut. If you get the Goodridge kit for the old XTs and the Magura Gustav (I think) you'll be fine. I kinked the line on my Reign and I skipped the little tie mount and added a Goodridge line. It was great for a bit, but I need to bleed it again I think. You can get in touch with Acadian, as he helped me with what I needed. I can't get to RM pms anymore, or I'd forward it to you.

I'll see if I can dig up the kit you need and post the number.

Ah, I misread as Juicy 7. My bad.

Was there even a Juicy 5 for 2004?
I don't think so.

I also think that the QBP number is BR1634 for the front and BR1635 for the back. I don't have the kit to say it's the 107 or the 108 kit needed, or what the difference is, but it looks like Ride-This has the kit in stock, where QBP does not appear to have the rear. They look to have the right fittings, but not the kit all together.

I would honestly call Ride-This and see what they say. As much as I like Go-Ride and Universal Cycles, neither could give me a definitive answer on what I needed. I ended up using the 5s instead of the 7s, and that may have been what troubled them, but like I said, Luc(Acadian) was the one that ultimately helped me decide what I needed.

If it can wait until tonight, I will post up the number, as I still have the front hose I bought in its package.
