    Need advice on a new build

    I'm upgrading a Trek Fuel I got recently with new wheels, new brakes and new shifters. The shop I am dealing with is selling me a pair of wheels with Deore XT hubs (disc) for $175 and a pair of Hayes brakes paired with Deore XT dual control levers. Since I already have a Deore XT FD, I was thinking about buying a XT RD. Can I go with the shadow RD or am I stuck with the normal one? Thanks.

    Frame: 2003 Trek Fuel 80
    Wheels: Deore XT hubs/ WTB rims
    Shifters: Deore XT
    Fork: Rockshox Duke Race
    Stem: Easton EA70
    Brakes: Hayes MX1
    Crank: Deore
    FD: Deore LX
    Tires: Panaracer Fire XC
    Salsa grips/barends
