Yes. Just make sure it has V-brake mounts and not just disk only, and it's good to keep the travel at the same length so, I think, those two are 100mm. If so then yeah they'll work.

Cool, i'm not probably gonna do it, im gonna get my LBS too and then watch and learn. Im not sure if i should since i have RST Gila's and they are in good condition, but now im getting into dirt jumping. Im also thinking about buying some New Pedals, like the BMX Flat ones, and probably some new grips. Thanks

I think BMX pedals are 1/2 size and mountain bikes are the 9/16, so make sure that the pedal size is the same.

If you are planning to go into dirt jumping.. don't stick with the RSTs. When you want to switch it might be too late. Taking out the fork is very very easy!
