    Im wondering if i can keep all the parts from the Gary Fisher Cake 2 DLX and replace just the frame with a new BMC trailfox or speedfox frame?

    Many of the components are almost "universal" and should transfer easily. Bottom brackets, front derailleurs, seat post, shock, etc, come in several sizes so you'll need to check for compatibility. Looks like the Cake 2 DLX comes with a 130mm Fox FLOAT R fork. The Speedfox has 120mm of travel so should be fine. The Trailfox (2009 and newer, I think) has 150mm of travel so the 130mm fork won't be ideal for the geometry.
