    Brake dilemma: what brakes on what bike?

    I am building a rigid steel 29er (Salsa El Mariachi) that I will use both as a commuter bike and for some trail riding. The bulk of my off-road riding will be handled by my faithful Yeti 575.
    Right now the Yeti has HFX 9 brakes and I have a never used set of XT 755 four pistons that I was planning to put on the Salsa.
    After reading a few posts on this forum I am not sure this is the best solution.
    I am relaying on you opinions to help me figure out what bike gets what brakes.
