Will a BMX badged U Brake replace an MTB U Brake - any size differences to worry about?

I enquired about this on the US site and they all seem to think yes, should be no problems at all.

confirm, no probs. . . . Unless you're looking to run something like an oddesy pitbull (yes I know its a roller cam), but my point is some BMX brakes have their own backplate, which needs mounting with a single central hole; as they are inteded to replace a sidepull.
Some types of brake won't necessarily come off the back plate in a straigntforward manner to mount on your U-brake bosses.
However, essentially, the answer to your question is 'yes'.
