Sounds like a fair trade. I personally prefer Manitou over Rockshox, but that's just my preference. I think the internals of the RS would be "considered" better over the SX.
I think the rest of the components are pretty equal. I would always prefer Avid over a generic, but the Shimano LX are very good, so that an even trade.
I think ICON is Trek's old "House Brand" components which were decent, I'm not familiar with Oynx, so that's a plus for you!(In my book!)
The most important thing regarding the size, is how does it "Feel"? Take the thing for a ride and swap back and forth. Keep the one you like best!
