Ordinary clamp is fine. Just make sure you use carbon gripper paste and don’t overtighten or it can bind and not return properly.

Didnt want my reverb hose flapping around and chaffing the my Big Sky Blue paint job. So rigged this up where the hose acts as an inner cable and the engine wire protector acts as the outer cable.

That’s often a symptom of low air pressure as well. It should be 250 psi. Easily topped up from bottom of post. Try that first.

Cheers, mines stealth/internal routing which on one hand saves the frame, but on the other, needs a bleed to fit. Very annoying as mine has just come back from a service so I'll need to redo some of the good work. Is a lever bleed easy? Bought the kit and have done many a disc brake....

Piece of cake, only point to remember is to wind the speed adjuster to fully slow before bleeding.
Make sure to use Reverb fluid and not brake fluid. Keep bleed kit in separate box clearly marked REVERB ONLY, don't want to be mixing them up!
