Have you got the bike fit anywhere near?
By all accounts the saddle is in the right place as you've achieved KOPS,which isn't the Holy Grail but seems to be right for most people,myself included.
You've no toe overlap up front.
Are the handlebars in the right place?
If not how could they be improved on?
I've three bikes with BB7 discs(160mm rotors on the solos,203mm on the tandem)I've no complaints at all,in fact they're best brakes I've had on any bike,especially in the wet,they do need to be set up right though.
what's the problem with your brakes?
