    Which Brakes For An Elite 29er?

    I just picked up a never used, slightly damaged 2007 Elite 29er and have put a couple of long rides on it. Love the bike, but the Juicy 3's seem to be pretty inadequate for me. I'm 6' 3" and 240 lbs, and braking doesn't inspire confidence.

    Anybody change up the brakes on their bike? I've got the Juicy 5's on my Nomad, and they work just fine. I'd assume they'd work better than the 3's on a 29er, but how much better??

    The Juicy 3's are fine.....just increase the front rotor to a 7" and maybe go to the Organic pads versus the metallic pads.
