is there any reason why you cant run full brake lines in braided instead of hard line.
is it just a cost issue as bikes run braided not hard.
If it helps I've just spoken to an mot tester friend of mine and he said he'd have no problem with a car that had all braided lines instead of hard lines as long as they were securely fixed and couldn't chafe in any way.
He then commented on the cost as well!
The reason braided should only be used in short lengths is that although it doesn't expand in diameter it can expand lengthwise, Think of a garden hose it doesn't expand when water pressure is in it but get hold of the end and pull it and it will stretch.
