    I guess it depends...

    What all you are looking for in your bike. I have the Meta 5.2 and it rocks. The 5.5 is going to climb and descend like a beast, so you might want to figure out what is more important, climbing, descending technical, rocky stuff? XT or SRAM x9 is a good place to start. I'm running a Nevegal 2.3 sticky up front wih a 2.3 DTC in the back. Can't go wrong with a Pike up front.

    good Luck and let us know what the build is.

    Just checked out bike. nice build. I have a similar build on my 5.2. My cranks gave me trouble, and after a long wait, Race Face upgraded them to the Deus. Once you figure out what tire set up and stem/bar stem up you like that thing will rock.

    Can't go wrong with a Commencal.

    Good Luck.
