LX are better but there is not much in it really. Deore, LX, XT and the rest all work with each other so you can mix them up if you want. Just choose whatever you think looks best on the bike and...

Some of the guys up here get a minibus and trailer to go on golfing trips, I imagine that there would be a trailer big enough to carry 15 or so bikes somewhere.

I was about to go searching for a set of those huge tyres somewhere in the UK for my Raleigh but then remembered that my V-Brakes probably wouldn't work with them.

I was looking at the Mini-Mule for a short friend but I was thinking it was just maybe too small but I found that it's 14 inches long whereas my 05 Mule is 18 so it's not that much smaller really.
