    disk brake help

    I recently converted my xc racer to avid Juicy 7's from v- brakes and while the front is fine, I'm having trouble skiding the rear tire in race situations when I don't want to and I can make this happen with 1 finger. Soon after I installed them I started to encounter rear brake noise and on the advice of another racer traded one of the stock pads for a Galfer semi-metalic. This cured the noise and vibration but I simply have too much power. I'm running a 160mm rotor. How do I make these brakes less powerful?

    suggestions

    shift your weight back. or swap to grippier tires. or use more front brake and less rear.
