Twin or h lines?

Recommended Posts

What is better and why for the front brake?

I asked and someone told me twin was better for a reason I cannot remember but all the decent race bikes I see reference having the h-line front set up?

Any clues as to what is best and why?

The h style does gives you more room around the master cylinder for routing stuff and it’ll be a touch less weight (it all adds up) 😬

Makes no difference performance wise, number of parts, cost, available space, acu requirements are the only differences

surely with h line line goes you are without front brakes?

and if one of your twin full length lines goes, you'll be without brakes also. 

Personally I prefer the h layout as its tidier.

I went down the H-line route....alas I did not take into account that with the fork extenders the front end was effectively an inch shorter than a stock bike so the h-line was too long, so fitted the twin lines from my old bike in the end with no problems.

Expensive measurement error!
