    Re: These components good?

    Research the reviews of both products.

    Piece of advise (please don't take this as me being harsh cause so not, just friendly advise that could save you money and headaches in the long run)

    Research parts BEFORE BUYING.

    That being said, the parts being good is dependant on why you bought them in the first place.

    By all accounts the Deore disc brake are very good. Most of the performance of the SLX/XT's at a lesser price but a little heavier and a few less features.

    Depending on intended usage the XC32 (air) is a good fork for the price.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    The Deores aren't the same as the XTs. The SLX are.
    Bluesky has the front for 70 rear for 90.

    "XC" is more than just smooth bike paths and fire roads. A XC 32 will handle quite rough terrain. The damper in the fork may struggle with successive high speed bumps. To get better than the fork you have with TK damping you would need to go to motion control damping, $100 to $200 more for a fork (that is if you stay with Rockshox).

    Ride what you have and enjoy.
