The deore hydro's are commonly known to suck. If the only purpose is for dirt jumping, I'd ditch the front brake, and put an Avid BB7 on there with Odyssey Slic Kable for the brake cable. Using that as the rear brake set up currently, will have both front and rear set like that when I get back home. Use the money that was saved and put it towards a marzocchi DJ1, sherman jumper, pike, or Vanilla RLC or 36.
