I have juicy 5's the same caliper, and master cyclender and what not, it use for DH, really really good brake. I love the levers, and they blew my hayes 9's away for all day DH runs, i say go for it you wont be disapointed.
The Juicy's are a very powerfull brake with a good range of modulation. I run the Juicy 7's with Dual 203mm rotors. I couldn't be happier...the brakes have a LOT of power...are virtually maintanince free...and have a quick adjusment.
Do yourself a favor and buy a good brakeset like the Juicy 7's. Good brakes make you faster.
They're amazing brakes. I wish I could afford a set. They work great with 203mm rotors. Lots of modulation. The little knob is nice, but if you don't have the cash, just go with the Juicy 5 instead. Totally identical, just minus the knob for pad contact.
