Come on guys, this is serious innovation.
How many times have you caught a brake hose on something during a crash and destroyed a caliper or lever?










Oh wait - never? No, me neither.
Totally not worth the hassle of developing specific unions to join hoses and all the other overly complicatedness that this is.

But if you route the brake hose out the steeerer and past the fork brace. That may change. :cry:

Looks promising. Pity about the reviewer contradicting himself.

Yeah that was weird. It's not like 35mm bars decrease trail feedback.

My first Mezzers should be here soon. Demo will be available.
