Has any of my fellow taller riders found a solution to the front brake reservoir's clip-on mounting bracket and/or short fluid hose preventing you from adjusting your levers downward? I really would like to get back to a point of keeping the wrist straight. Has anyone came across a longer (possibly SS braided) hose or reservoir relocation bracket on the market yet?

Driven racing makes something that might work for you.

You could also try the tygon tubing and make your own hose.

I used tygon tubing when I changed the master, works perfect, it's made for this, among other things. That line is not under pressure, it just feeds the system, so you don't need a extra strong line there but that is up to you. I used a reservoir bracket like Twiztidr7 showed, just bend it as needed for where you want it to sit.

Awesom! Since it is the high point of the system you didn't have to bleed it correct?

No you will not have to bleed it.
(y) Yup!! High point and not pressurized. It is just the cap sealing it, any air comes right up and out of that line. Perfectly normal. You will need to drain the reservoir to not make a big mess, I have a handful of 100ml syringes I use for brake work. I use these, cheap, essentially throw away, and the hose it comes with come in handy when bleeding or pulling fluid out.
