I just bought a new 29er (Giant Anthem X4). It came equipped with Avid Elixir 1 brakes and a RockShox Recon Silver TK single air fork.
My old bike has a RockShox Reba SL dual air fork and Avid Juicy 7 brakes. If the steerer tubes are compatible, I was thinking I'd move the SL fork over because it rides nicer, has a remote lockout, and is lighter.
As far as the brakes, I like the Juicy 7 levers better (they're metal and closer to the bar) and the pad adjust feature.
Are there any reasons I should not swap these parts around? My old bike will be a spare to be ridden by guests/friends/family, so I don't really care that it doesn't have the greatest parts.
