    BB5 vs. BB7/Elixir Power difference?

    I am running BB5 front and rear with 185mm G2 rotors and speed dial levers. I need more power. Would I notice much improvement switching the calipers to BB7s or would I need to go hydro? I plan on leaving the 185 rotors both front and rear.

    Going hydro would require significantly less lever pressure to generate the same braking force on the mech. Elixir would have more stopping power than BB7 of course but not by much. Probably gain on the fade free braking as well.
