I've read that Victory brakes aren't that great, but I've never used them myself.
I think Victory is fine. The brakes are not as good as dual pivots, I am sure could benefit from fresh brake pads. Look at a gear chart to consider what you need. I have two bikes with a 40t inner and the reduction of just 2 teeth I think makes a nice difference. It's not a triple, but it helps.
