Stainless Steel Brake lines

So I am looking to buy front brake steel braided lines. I cant seem to figure out which one to select in order to get both front calipers. When is says 2 does that mean lines for both calipers or am I misunderstanding it? I dunno if goodridge is the best brand to get or if i should just buy two single lines of another brand. Also anyone know all the specs of the stock chain? Heres the link for the brakes.

the lines in your link are for both front lines,goodridge are a good make just make sure you buy a set with stainless fittings not aluminium as its been known to fail in the past!

Does anyone know of a place you can order the line from the front brake reservoir to the hand lever? I'm hoping to get it in a steel braided setup as all the others are and the Arizona sun is baking the rubber ones in about 3 months... It's no fun losing front brakes on the road.

Thats a good question, Iv not seen em anywhere, But that is the weak link in the chain as it now stands.
Id like to replace mine too.

you want "race" line. If that makes sense. I got hel lines. either get those or goodridge. er whatever. get the stainless steel fittings, not aluminum.

I haven't seen em anywhere either. I guess I'll have to geek out and see what I can come up with soon as I have time off from work; in May...
