for a bmx, you probably want a u-brake you need the lever, housing, and the brake the parts shouldnt cost any more than $30 you need to get one side of your grip off (air compressor) a 5mm allen key to adjust the lever, and a 6mm allen key to bolt down the brake onto your frame once you have all the parts on, you just have to center your brakes and tension the cable with a 5mm allen (this takes a bit of skill/practice)
