Does anyone have any experience with running over-the-fender brakelines on the RC?

I like the simple look of them, but how do they compare to a 2 line system? Its for street use btw.

you'll get a more progressive brake with an over the fender set-up 'cos the fluid has to pressurise the leading caliper before it does the other. prefer twin lines myself for the brick wall effect but gives a nice steady build up for road use.

Once the system is bled and the lever is squeezed, all of the hydraulic pressure is equalized. All pistons are fed equal pressure regardless of the 'over-the-fender' setup. It is simply not true that the pressure starts on one caliper before the other.
The real reason to use two individual brakelines is that they are easier to bleed. There are no "traps" where air bubbles can congregate. Other than that, the 'over-the-fender' brakeline does have the advantage of less unsprung weight and easier routing.
