Just had another thought: what brake pads are you using? No one seems to like the stock TRP pads (well, except TRP I assume). I use the Swissstop Disc 15s (s = sintered metallic compound), and they work pretty well after breaking them in (no pun intended). Braking is now almost as good as the Avid BB-7 (mtb) with EBC gold pads that I ran previously before falling for the upgrade kool-aid.
