No one really uses them anymore.  I doesn't seem people are catching crossovers like they used to.

And they made brakes feel poop, because the holes in the fittings are tiny.


Still possible to make one though:

See description for which fitting you need.

As an alternative, depending on your frame you could try running a splitter and have a separate hose to each cylinder.  If you can route them around your seatstays a bit tighter you'll be less likely to hit them or catch them.  

It's more due to the shape of his frame, but as an example from Stan's bike:

I used to love my old metal crossover... until i broke it with my ankle on a crescent ilions ! strange they disappeared, I’ve just run a booster which covered the maggie for the past ??? years... seems to do the trick. Definitely makes you feel special that nice metal braided thing... now I run a clear trialtech hose, almost as special- I can see all the bubbles how fun!
