Brake hose olives.

Does anybody know whether the brake hose olives are interchangeable between different brands of brakes? In my case I am looking at putting shimano on formula brakes

I wouldn’t do it, they have a different shape from looking at pictures online, you shouldn’t interchange that type of stuff, just asking for trouble IMO.

Thanks Terry. I was looking at the images yesterday night and in fact it looks like they are different. BTW - Internal cable routing SUCKS!! What good is buying a brake if then you have to spend money buying hoses for it.
