New brake delima

I recently bought a new front brake Avid Code 185mm. I haven't installed it yet so I cannot comment on the function. My question is right now I still have the stock rear brake (Hayes Solo 160mm). Should I upgrade the rear also or stay stock? If I upgrade should I go with a 185mm or a 203mm? I would think the 203mm would be over kill for my riding purpose (XC singletrack).

Why would you consider a 203 for the rear and not the front?

And to answer your question, I would keep the rear stock as long as it works.
