    Brakes & Wheelset Packages

    I was unsure which forum to post this in(Brakes, Wheelset or both) so I thought since most of my riding is "AM" I'll post here.
    Currently riding a RM ETSX for AM and looking to replace the brakes and wheelset. Looking at two possible combinations that are priced pretty similar>

    Juicy 5's with DT Onyx/DT XR4.1d Wheelset OR
    Juicy 7's with XT / Mavic XM321 Wheelset.

    I ride alot of Canadian shield and I'm a pretty agressive rider that weighs 200lbs.

    Can you give me your thoughts on these products.

    I just switched to an 8" rotor in the front w/ Hayes Hydraulics, it made a huge difference. I'm happy with 6" for the rear rotor...

    The 5.1s might be better choice... I'd get Mavics, though. If you have the $$$, the 823s don't weigh too much more than the 321s. I currently have F519s, they have held up really well, and seem ok for up to 2.35s. I've seen 'em on closeout for $29 each... they are a little narrower than I'd like, but only weigh 450g. I wouldnt put 2.5s on 'em, so I guess I need a second wheelset for dh The 823s, 321s, or 5.1s fit big tires better.
