    Getting kinks out of Hoses...

    So I didn't have to bother shorten the Hoses on a pair of Elixirs I wrapped the hose around the Frame/Stay/Forks on my Inbred.

    Now I want to put them onto another bike I've taken them off and they resemble a bloody slinky :-(

    Any idea how to straighten the out...my thoughts currently being something hot like the along a radiator?

    I hate it when I get a kink in the hose, it usually gets caught on the back gate, as I've reeled it out in haste to wash the car.

    That's what rain is for, hedgerows are for exfoliating grime and puddles are for deep cleaning the bit behind the wheels.

    Got anywhere you can hang 'em up - after a couple of days they'll straighten themselves out (maybe quicker in t'airing cupboard or somewhere else warm). I didn't bother when I put the SS together, just relied on the power of zip ties holding them in the guides & the front end kinda resolved itself.
