I got a new sprocket for my bmx and now I found that the old U breaks won't fit with the smaller sprocket now the brake hits the chain
I was wondering if you have ever heard of of changed the breaks on a bike to caliper from U or changing brakes at all

Your new sprocket is too small, get one the same size as your old one. Chances are it feels far too easy to pedal with the new sprocket anyway.
Some companies make a u brake with a lower profile that might fit though

Old post, I know....
Depending on your skill level, you can relocate the brakes.
