One thing which I want to know is what problem are your hayes brakes giving you? Also they are designed with auto alingment features, disc brakes with auto alignment don't stop squeak heaps, just thought you should know.
I'm not saying don't change your brakes, and I am not syaing Hayes HFX-9's are that great a brkae, but why do you think you need to change. I know people who race DH on them (DH racing is the ultimate test for brakes) and they think they are fine, sure they are only going full speed trying to stop 90kg worth of bike and rider so what do they know. Lot's of them feel they coul do better with differetn brakes, but they think that they can get away with it.
