Dia-Compe MX1000 Front Brake
Dia-Compe MX-1000 old school BMX brake caliper, the most popular brake of the 1980's, re-issued by DiaCompe in black, blue, gold, red, silver or white in front or rear. Now with original-style brown MX1000 brake pads.
Back in 2007 I took a red original MX-1000 in my backpack to the Interbike trade show in Las Vegas. When there I found the DiaCompe stand in the show guide and went straight there pulled out my MX-1000 and asked could they still make these. "No" was the answer...
In the 70's all we had were caliper brakes and they were rubbish, mostly because the caliper flexed so much as well as the lever and it's banding. How anyone ever did endos (without a curb) was amazing. Anyway around 1980 the MX-1000 was launched with it's c-section "girder" construction - and they were a huge improvement, being the only brake anyone ran for racing or freestyle until the 901 and Nippon came out circa 85. I think only me and Harry Leary ran them on the front for racing :)
