    What your title does NOT say is what type of levers you use, MTB or Road. I opted for a BB7 Road caliper for the front of my touring bike. I wanted lots of stopping power, simplicity, and good feel. Quiet was not part of my requirements, but with Kool Stop pads, they are. I ended up going to a 203mm rotor to match the stopping poiwer of the XTR V-brake/booster setup I replaced. The frame is not set up for disc, so I still have the V-brake/booster on the rear. Stopping is excelent, good feel, and 'skidding power' at both ends in the dry.

    Pretty much all discs will squeal at some point, or under some circumstances. If quiet is a priority, go with roller brakes.

    I use BB7 on the road bike and MTBs. The "feel/modulation" stuff is a bunch of junk for me.
