im tryin to think how could the brake hoses be compromised like that? Your diagnosis sounds pretty accurate though. I would think you would feel an issue when applyin the brakes as well no? Ive been under the impression our lines are pretty durable. I would think. Wish i had answers for ya. First thing that popped into my head was someone tampering with your ride.
Or if ya bleed the brakes recently, had service done etc than maybe this caused this issue
