    New question here. [WWYD] Hope X2 or Formula RX or Juicy 3(stock)

    Picking up a 2011 Trek/Fisher Rig SS 29er this fall (it's on order). It comes stock w/ Juicy 3's.

    I didn't mind the Juicy 5's on my HiFi (other than the horrible rear brake squeal/chatter).

    I'm thinking I'll upgrade the Juicy 3's right away. I have access to bike parts for cheap, so cost isn't a huge issue. I'd like to steer clear of Avid, I want to try something new.

    I'm 6'6", weigh 220ish.

    I'm thinking one of:
    (front/rear, fr size/rr size)

    X2/X2, 185/160
    X2/X2, 200/185
    M4/X2, 185/160
    RX/RX, 185/160
    RX/RX, 200/185

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    noot

    Hell, if your going that retro with a rigid ss you might as well go all the way and put on some cantilever brakes!
