I'm looking to buy some bulk hydraulic hoses to keep in my home workshop, and I can't seem to find a clear answer on hose interoperability.

Currently, I have Shimano XT BR-M8000, Shimano RS785, Formula R1, and Guide RSC hydraulic brakes. In short, my question is: do all of these brakes share the same hydraulic hoses?

I believe the answer is yes as long as the inserts are correct.

The "universal" hose in most cases has an outer diameter (OD) of 5.0mm and internal diameter (ID) of 2.1mm

The XT's use the BH90 hose, which has an OD of 5.0mm and ID of 2.1mm.

The RS785s use the BH59 hose with OD 5.0mm and 2.5mm ID (I think? can't find this answer, just know it's slightly larger than the BH90), however many have reported using the BH90s without issue.

The only deviation I can find are Tektro and Hayes brakes that use hoses with 5.5mm OD and 2.5mm ID.

29er / Bhaalgorn's "Budget" CS-057 Build
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:19:22 AM »
I recently built up a CS-057 using mostly spare (** indicates spare) or budget/used parts from eBay, Craigslist, Aliexpress, etc. Though I did kind of splurge on building a custom carbon wheelset. :) 

Total cost is currently $2,334.48 (includes shipping and tax, price will go down when I sell some things I bought bundled together).

Current weight is just under 22lbs with pedals and bottle cage.

Here's the full buildsheet:

29er / CS-057 Low Profile Headset?
« on: September 09, 2017, 07:48:52 PM »
My fork steerer tube is about 1/4" too short for my CS-057. Does anyone know of a lower profile headset than the NECO that comes with the frame?

29er / 057 BB30 Question
« on: July 31, 2017, 10:32:21 AM »
Just ordered a CS-057 with the BB30 option (wanted the versatility of BB30). What's everyone doing for BB on these? I was planning to go with theWheelsMFG bb30 kit and a SRAM XO (technically S2200) crank with an absoluteBLACK flat/BB30 chainring.

I really like the idea of a threaded BB though and am considering a Shimano crank with a BB30>24mm conversion or a SRAM GXP crank with a BB30>GXP bb.

What are your thoughts and experiences?

29er / Vendors with the Cheapest Frame like the CS-057?
« on: July 26, 2017, 07:52:44 AM »
As the topic asks: Which vendors sell the cheapest CS-057 frame? I might still go with Peter, but he's considerably more expensive than every other Chinese vendor.

29er / Full Suspension WCB-M-108 / LCFS902 / CS-821 Experience?
« on: December 24, 2016, 03:17:45 PM »
Have anyone built up one of these frames? I'm thinking about building one myself with a set of carbon wheels. I'm curious how stiff and/or loose the frame is, especially side to side. I'm a bigger rider (6'3", 220lbs), so I'm a little anxious about it. Also curious for those that did build this up, what suspension did you go with (what size shock)?

Aliexpress has a wide range of components that seem very appealing. Has anyone tried some of these components? The only parts I've ordered are small things (jockey wheels, bolts, etc.), but there appear to be a whole host of knockoffs (like the iXF crankset which is Shimano XT).

What are some of the common knockoff equivalents?
What have you tried and liked or didn't like?
