    If you're running a triple with an 11-36 cassette you definitely need a long cage rear derailleur. In fact, your 42-32-24 crankset and 11-36 cassette are right at the maximum 43 tooth capacity of the XT long cage derailleur [(36-11) + (42-24) = 43]. Also, why did you get one centerlock rotor and one six-bolt rotor? You need both rotors to be six-bolts.

    Also, don't forget a chain, grips, saddle, pedals and tires!

    Thank you very much. The long vs. short cage is something I was concerned about. As far as the rotors, just not paying attention. I'll correct both when I place my order.
