What colour are your Brake Hose Fittings?

Are your fittings Red or Blue?

If so you need to check that they are NOT alloy fittings.

I mention this as I have spotted them being used on another thread here.

For those of us who don’t realise, Red or Blue Alloy Hose Fittings are for Race Use Only and should never be used on road bikes as they are not able to withstand daily road conditions.

They may look “Well bling innit?” but can and do fail with nasty consequences.

Please check to see if your road bike has coloured Banjo Fittings. If you have, I strongly urge you consider changing them.
