    Avid Elixir or Code?

    I have a 07 Enduro, coil spring setup, that is mainly used for trail/free ride and the brakes are pretty bad compared to my 08 SJ w/ Ultimate 7s. I would like to change out the Enduro brakes but have no idea what brakes to get.

    I'm 6'5 240lb and the bike is an XL. I definitely want the 203mm in the front and have toyed with doing a 203mm in the rear as well. I spoke with SRAM and they said the Elixir is really their all around brake with the CR having more adjustability but cost about $100 more than the Rs. They recommend the Code for free ride. Unfortunately, speaking with them really didn't help my decision. Given this scenario, which of the following brake setups would be best for me?

    Elixir R
    Elixir CR
    Code 5 (code caliper w/ juicy lever)
    12 Specialized SJ EVO 29
    11 Specialized SJ FSR Expert EVO
    08 Specialized SJ FSR Expert
    06 Enduro w/ "Pushed" Fox DHX 5.0

    I'd go code. Doesn't seem like elixir has a lot of aftermarket parts for it - ceramic brake pads is example
