The Apex was sold with Deore DX components, including hubs, but this bike looks to have a replacement rear wheel. DX was right under XT. If you get this bike, service the bearings, tune up the bike and it will treat you well. I'd replace the shifters with thumbies, add bar ends and use better brake pads, like koolstop eagle claw.

It should have fork mounts, and the levers (if original) do not have the correct pull for that front v brake.
