Many bicycles with back pedal (coaster) brakes are sold with a single brake - that operated by the pedals. It is of course safer to have a second brake, and for convenience when pushing a bicycle down a slope it's very helpful to have a second brake. Perhaps the most important reason to install a brake is that in many countries (including most English speaking countries), there is a legal requirement to have two completely independent braking systems on a bicycle. This kit includes all the parts you need to add that second independent brake to most bicycles.

Includes brake lever, cable, brake, brake blocks.

Please note: Brakes are safety equipment. Please do not adjust brakes or fit new brakes yourself unless you are confident of your ability to do so safely. Always employ a professional bicycle mechanic for any safety critical adjustments to your bicycle. We cannot be held responsible for incorrectly installed or incorrectly set up brakes.

Note that the brake kit is compatible only with "normal" rims and not with westwood rims. Please compare the cross-section of your rims with this diagram
