Well I was thinking you'd just mark the hose where it needs to be cut and then just take that down along with any other stuff needed that you can't do without special tools. If they don't have to size the length and deal with the inconvenience of another bike being in the way then things go faster for them. And IMO they are more apt to do it now instead telling you they need to keep it awhile.

The DM for the GRX brakes shows some of the tools but often fails to list the tool's part number or whether it might be supplied with replacement parts... which prompted this post.
Even on the page of the DM that specifically lists all the needed tools? You may be right. I haven't noticed, but I'll try to remember to notice that next time I'm browsing DM's.
