This genuine Dia-Compe complete front and rear brake set up in Blue is perfect for your Old School BMX restoration. Comprising a pair of MX-890 caliper, left and right Tech-III levers and front and rear Dia-Compe BRS cables. 



The MX890 brakes are now available as a complete brake set from us comprising:


• New Dia-Compe MX890 brakes: 1x Front. 1x Rear. Complete with all mounting hardware, (washers & curved washers).
• New Dia-Compe Tech-III levers. Includes ferrules for the cables.
• Two blue GENUINE DIA-COMPE BRANDED brake cables.

• Frame cable clips available separately (extra) in a choice of 3 sizes and 4 colours.


MX890 Brakes
The 890 pre-dates the MX-1000 and along with Shimano was the brake of choice before the "1000" came out. Perfect for all 80's restorations especially those bikes dating from 1982 and before (Diamond Back Silver Streak, Torker 280, etc) these were still used into the mid-80's as a cheaper alternative to the 1000.


These new versions from Dia-Compe actually look nicer in our opinion than the new MX1000 and they come in Black, Red, Blue, Gold Silver or White. Matched up with a Tech-III lever you have great looking brake set that only the cognoscenti will know aren't the originals.


• Anodised.  
• Dimension: 73mm-92mm. 
• Cold forged aluminium arms (anodised). 
• OPC30 pads. 
• 210g each. 
• Front & Rear pair.
• Curved washers and locknut included.

Why not add Kool Stop International brake pads for that 80's pro look.
