Most of the brake cable housings in the market is 1.7m long. I am concerned that it not be long enough as i intended to run it full length to the rear disc brake.

Can anyone suggest compressionless housings that are longer than that?

Lots of hydro disc brakes come pre-bled with 1700mm hoses for the rear, so you should be alright.

I have run full length housing for mechanical disc on a couple disc cross frames to include a 57cm Raleigh RXC with Gore RideOn Sealed and Jagwire Hyper/Racer cables and in all instances, cable housing was more than long enough for full length run for the rear brake. The down side though was because I ran full length rear, I had to buy two cable sets as there was not enough housing left over for the front brake from the first set.

you looking for cable housing for mechanical disc, or hoses for hydros?

I'm reading it as housing:

You can get Jagwire XLs that have like 3 meters of housing in that kit or something like that designed for big frames/ tandems.

i am using mechanical disc, specifically Avid BB7 road. i am looking at this offer -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-JAGWIRE-HOU ... 1037096233

Not entirely compressionless according to the specs -
*****
High carbon content steel and rigid structural design creates
super-low compression ratio for maximum braking responsiveness
*****

Would not need the shifter housing, as i am running Di2.

sounds like you are good to go.

I'm running mine with Campy Centaur, so I used 2 Campy Rear housings (great conmpressionless housing BTW). the Front one is where I had the length problem.
