Broken brakes

Looks like my initial guess was right, the brake lines were apparently old and brittle and blew apart under the stress from bottoming out.  It was a good thing it happened when it did, on a rural road with no traffic only a couple miles from home.

Fortunately it's not going to be as bad as I'd feared, only $200 to install new lines, including labor.  I was fearing I'd damaged a caliper or worse, which would have been significantly more expensive.

The bad news is it will take 2-3 days for them to get the parts.  Bleah.
