Default Brake line to short

Went to put 2 inch Risers on my 48 but front brake line is too short!
Is there one made 2 inches longer at the top? Brake line that is.

If you are very careful, the metal tube at the top of the line can be straitened enough to get you the 2" you need. Get it warm. Like pour hot water on it, warm. Go slow. Worked for me. Didn't even have to take it off the bike. Or just get a one piece, stainless braided line. Lots of options there. J&P, E-Bay, Amazon. Do some measuring & do your home work & you'll find what you want.
