Don't f**k about with an adaptor. If you are going to the expense of a decent MC, throw in a bit extra and get purpose built lines to suit. HEL are pretty good and are now doing coloured stainless which I'm told looks pretty sweet.

Nelly at Cornerspeed is your man for HEL. 01623 758877

Do your own thing. I have a pair of Goodridge dual line but they are for the top feed, GP3 type calipers. These hoses will be coming off in a few weeks and will be replaced by a single down line that splits across the mudguard, 916 style. The exit from the Radial lever is a 90 degree union that sends the hose neatly down the fork leg, avoiding any bunching as you turn the bars.

I thnk this will be the 3rd or 4th iteration of caliper/hose that I've tried. I might get it right soon....
