Coming from the saint thread I was wondering if Goodridge lines had a hose that was rubber or nylon coated so they don't scratch your frame? And are their any other companies that make a metal line hose with a rubber coating? :thumb:

The goodridge do come with ****ing rubber coating so they wont scratch up ur frame. They either come with rubber coating or some other material. Learn how to spell.

The goodridge lines are a steel mesh, not that damn conduit type stuff shimano used to have. They have a plastic coating for what it's worth...any cable will rub off the paint over a season if you don't protect the frame.

wow, look at all that has been accomplished.

and yes you can get braided coated hose from hope, galfer and goodridge, and i think there's another but it doesn't come to mind. The hope coating is quite dense, ie, less like rubber more like plastic. the goodridge coating iirc is somewhat rubbery, like vinyl.

Goodridge hoses rock. Yes they are coated so the steel braiding doesn't scratch your frame up so fast. If you can afford em I highly recommend them. I have tried Hayes hoses, shimano steel braided, and Goodridge. Of the three that I have tried the Goodridge hoses left the other two in the dust.

What I like to do is put some sort of tape over the frame or wrapped around your hose. It won't rub down the frame so quickly.
Tape on the hose won't help hoss. You need tape on the frame. Tape on the hose is going to move just as much as the hose minus the tape.

Do you think plastic tape will act differently then plastic hose?

Fair enough being worried about naked braided steel lines rubbing your frame, but the damage done by plastic coated Goodridge lines is going to be nothing compared what rocks, trees and shuttles will do. Just stick some tape or clear 3M protective plastic on the frame on the spots where the cables rub.

Very true. Personally I don't worry about it because my frames get scratched alot... mainly because I crash alot.
