Hose routing for Zoke forks

Postby Taz » Thu Apr 19, 2007 12:11 pm

Has anyone come up with a good hose routing technique for zoke forks? The hose mount on the back of the fork just seems to be the wrong place. It's going to rub the hell out of the crown.

I got a bike with a 66SL on the front.
I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

I run the cable up the back of the fork, zip tie it just below the bulge for the crown, then through the legs above the arch and a small zip tie to the arch.

Keeps it in place and away from rubbing anything. I see some people run their hose on the outside of the fork leg, which is a bad idea in case you brush/nick/sideswipe anything with your fork could mean a cut/leaking line.

Havent seen it, but better safe than sorry (and it looks kludgy!)

Blah blah blah. . . . .
