GRX 400. Not sure you can compare with Sora since there's no sora hydraulic brakes?
The only reason I went with GRX is because they do cross-top levers, which I need for my slightly broken hands.
It's tiagra/deore, 10 speed, hydro, works and looks more or less the same as the better stuff but heavier and cheaper materials, no ceramic pistons etc.
So I've just installed my first hydraulic disc brake. It seems to work ok. But I forgot to put the connector inserts in the ends of the hoses. So the olives in my cross-top lever are tightening on a plastic hose with no metal insert. Inserts were already installed in the ends I put into the brake caliper and STI lever.
I'm going to ride it and see if it goes spongy, then bleed and do it properly if needed. Think that's dangerous?
yes, the olive is missing the insert to get crushed around.
ok need to buy more hose then. fucking up is the best way to learn.
You probably trimmed them just long enough to cut the end off and do it right.
