Maybe, but the copper fittings are very smooth, and once the 
slightly-undersized hoses are on them and the clamps are tight, the rubber seems to semi-bond 
itself on. In 15 yrs & 20.000 miles of mostly street and some track events, 
I've not had a hose slip or even leak. For worriers though, its possible to add 
a ring of solder onto each fitting end that will act as a bead. Cheers- J 

Start the year off right.  Easy ways to stay in shape.
