A brake set I bought from Kanter (believe made by Classic) had the longer lengths rolled with a very gentle curve and shipped in a fairly large squarish box. I took the lines out and placed them on the driveway with a weight at one end to keep that end on the ground while rolling the rest out flat. It did straighten for the most part but will need a bit of fine tuning. If installing with everything still on the frame some pieces are going to get bent again anyway when trying to get around or thru mounts and frame holes etc so the rolling issue is the least of the straightening problems. Stainless is very hard and will be difficult to work with particularly if large components are still in place but is supposed to last longer.
