    Hi All,

    My 7yo son has a BMX but is unable to pull the brake levers on
    hard enough to stop without hitting something (usually me).

    Is there a way of mounting cantilevers with a bit more leverage
    onto a frame without the bosses? (and without braising some on).

    Maybe like a U frame with the bosses mounted on it that clamps to
    the original brake pivot and maybe the seat stays or forks?

    Or, what about dual pivot brakes - I have them on my roadie
    can you get them for BMX tyre/rim?
    (note that the rim is Al, so it should stop OK?)

    thanks,
    Matthew
