I currently have on my '09 GT Sanction Avid Juicy 5's. I have been one of the lucky ones with my Avid's with no turkey gobble or other issues. It is evident that these brakes don't have a ton of power and on long descents I get some brake fade. I'm wanting to upgrade brakes over the winter for next season. I can get a great deal on some 2012 Code R's with rotors. The reviews of these have been great and sounds like the re-design has fixed most of the issues avid has been known for. However, they weight the same as my Juicy 5's now (about 400grams each). Should I go for the Code's for more power/same weight or give up the ghost and switch over to XT 785's which I know will be great for power and not fade with an added bonus of dropping about 200 grams overall?
