Hi Tom - These calipers are sold just as the calipers themselves, brake cables are available separately in our 'V-Brake Spares' section. Thanks, Mark


Hi will these fit the rear of my onza bird? And what will I need to add to basket to get a whole break from this mount to the actual lever? Thanks will order when replied :)

Hi Lewis!
The Alivio calipers will fit your Bird fine. If you've got the lever already, then alongside the Alivio Calipers you'd need:
1 x Clarks Inner Cable (Product code: 11671)
Ashima Brake Outer Cable (Product code: 12986) - if you've got a V-Brake already, simply measure the length of the outer hose to ensure you get enough!
1 x TartyBikes Cable Ferrules (2) (Product code: 12987)
That should cover all the cable needs. You'll need to cut the inner and outer cables to length, but as long as you've got a good set of cable cutters (or a pliars with cable cutting section) you should be fine. Alternatively you could use an angle grinder if you're careful!
If you need a brake lever as well, the Avid FR5 Lever (Product code: 10128) would be a great option.
If you need any more help, feel free to ask!


Hi the current mount I use rubs my back wheel on my onza bird as the wheels fat... will this offer slot of clearence ?

Hi Lewis!
By "the current mount", do you mean the brake calipers you're using at the moment? If so, these should hopefully do the trick. The arms are a little longer so should give better clearance. Alternatively, you can check the orientation of the spacers between your brake pads and the caliper arms. There will be a thicker pair of washers and a thinner pair - if you make sure the thinner pair are on the outside of the calipers you'll get a little more clearance.
Overall, with those pads fitted and with this brake caliper you should get some additional clearance compared to your existing setup.

Hi will these brakes fit on a onza bird, also what are the best pads for them? Sam

Hi Sam - These brake calipers should fit your Bird fine. For brake pads, if you're using a smooth rim (rather than grinding it), the Onza Ice Pro V-Pads are really good! Thanks, Mark
