no it will not b/c im 99.9% sure that it only works on disc brakes and u dont want hydraulic brakes b/c with bmx ull break the lines which dont twist very well at all at the fluid is right infront of ur hand

its not smart to put them on a bmx bike(unless u race which still it probably isnt a good idea to use them) and u need disc brakes and itll cost u over $200 at the cheapest

it doesnt work the lugs on a U brake are in the wrong place but you can buy a V plate which goes over the lugs and makes V brake compatible then you cna put Magura's on it because Magura's fit on V brake mounts.

A Magura has a hydralic rim brake where it works on the rim not as a disk but is very powerful with it bein hydraulic my mountain bike friend has them and they fit on the V brake mounts.

Yes, they only fit v-brake mounts. A lot of unicyclists use the hydraulic rim brake. I forget which company does it but someone made an adapter to use disc brakes on a bmx frame. I would never do that until the frame makers put dics tabs on the frames.

there really is no point in putting hydraulic or disk brakes on a bmx bike. all you need is a trusty u-brake. i find that people who used to mountain bike or people that still mountainbike as well as bmx allways have some kind of fetish with putting brakes that could stop high speed train, on a bmx, why is that?!

word. Although the nice pastels in the mid 80's x-treme scene were very nice. Jams and Skidz everywhere.
