Im looking for a replacement hose for the rear but i cant find anything other than new saint hoses or XT.
Does anyone know if this hose will fit the m800(first gen) brake?. Personally i'd have thought so but you know shimano for those subtle differences :?

Pretty sure that it should be fine. I think that era XT brake is identical to the Saint in terms of looks and fittings such as disc pads.

Failing that what about Goodridge? They still do the kits and were in the CRC sale recently.

In fact, I'm almost certain that they'll fit.

I remember bits from that era being pretty interchangeable (except for Deore).
