    If I Change My Frame Will All My Current Stuff Be Compatible.

    Currently Im On A 2006 Santa Cruz Blur XC:
    BikePedia - 2006 Santa Cruz Blur XC XO Complete Bicycle
    BikePedia - 2006 Santa Cruz Blur XC SPX Complete Bicycle

    The parts are a mix between those two, this is what is on mine:
    Handlebar: Monkeylite XC
    Brakes: Avid Juicy 7
    Front Fork: Fox Float F100RLT
    Rear Fork: Fox Float RP3 w/ Pro Pedal
    Crankset: Shimano Deore XT [3x9]
    Shifters: Shimano Deore XT
    Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR
    WheelSet: DT Swiss xr4.1d
    Hubs: Onyx DT Swiss
    Stem: Thomson Elite
    Thing Stem Attaches To (Headset?) Cane Creek S2

    Ok, now frames I wanted to change it too!
    Santa Cruz Bicycles
    Specialized S-Works Epic 2011 Frame | R&A Cycles

    Any other good lite frames to consider??? Or should I keep my current frame and upgrade to carbon wheels etc.....

    So would all my current components be compatible with one of these new frames?

    You'd be better off in the bike and frame forum. For the record, you usually replace the headset and bottom bracket (crankset) but moving the crankset over isnt a big deal. Getting the head set off could be a drama if you dont have the tools.

    There's no pic for the '06 Blur to compare but everything should swap over no problem except for the fork and headset. The new Blur has a tapered headtube and fork. Same issue with the Epic. Also the Epic has downtube hydraulic brake cable routing so you need to get longer lines for the rear brakes. Front derailleur is also an issue. The Blur uses a 34.9mm clamp on and the Epic uses a direct mount.

    You can get an adapter-style headset to alloy use of the 1.125" fork in the tapered head tube also.
