Hey all, currently building a '17 Tallboy 29er from the frame up. I believe brakes that come on the bike are 180/160mm. I'm looking to purchase Guide RSC brakes but wondering if I should go 180/180 or will that mess up any brake-bias in the 180/160? What have others done?

I am running 203 front and back on my 18 TB with no issues. I like more power than I need, especially since I am not a lightweight. lol

I have Hope Tech 3 E4 on the 2018 SC tallboy 27.5+ with 180F/160R same as on the 2017 SC Bronson and 2017 Ibis Mojo 3. Plenty of brake power for my RDR 185-190#.
