School me on Brake Hoses
So somehow I managed to put a kink in the rear brake hose on my DH rig. It worked well enough as a rear brake doing laps at the park, but it wasn't really consistent in how it felt all day so I need to replace it. I'm running Saints (M810s), but there seem to be a lot of options out there for replacing the lines. Should I just go with the stock hoses or is it worth it to upgrade to something "better" like goodridges. Also if I do this, what kind of fittings will I need to buy if I go with the stock hose or new lines. If I go stock can I just grab the fittings out of the old hose or is this impossible.Take everything you like seriously, except yourselves.

do you have a bleed kit? if not just let a shop deal with it. I have found no real advantage with the upgrade hoses, but I'm not on a bg DH bike with overheating issues.
If you are doing it all yourself, buy a hoes kit, with all the ends installed, or at least included.
goodridge, jagwire make kits, and I'm sure a bunch of others
