Is this a good deal?

Found a Raliegh Sojourn with XTR rear deraileur for $900 usd near my area.

I'm wondering if this is a good deal and if I should go pick this up and fatten up the stable a little bit?

If it is new and you like it, get it. I've only done some test rides on one, but liked it a lot.

He's also got XT ICE rotors that I don't want and an HG90 11-34 cassette, again, pretty sure I don't want.

It is the 2014 model year Raleigh as well.

I think it's a very good deal. What are the crank gears?

If it's your size, absolutely.

I'd consider going to something lower like 48/36/24.
