the Fuji would have a notch better components IMO but it`s a close call either way really as 105 is roughly midway up the ladder for road components and Deore-SLX is also roughly midway up the ladder for MTB components.. I think you answered your question yourself when you said your leaning more towards the Fuji just cuz of the color... the components are too close to be a bother I would say.. buy the one you like the looks better.. or that fits better.. or whatever.. just be riding dangit! lol

The thing is that for $300 more you can be riding a Fuji Team carbon fiber bike that will be more comfortable then the aluminum will ever be.

Really now?

But to the OP: if anything, the top tube angle of the Fuji, as well as the components, are more fitting to a possible "road conversion" sans the brakes if you're ever inclined to do so in the long run.

Marty pretty much said it with the components. Deore-SLX might be heavier, but you can't really notice that as they function just as well as 105.
