    Freeride Hardtail build

    I changed my mind again. Rather than a Morphine, im leaning towards the Soul Cycles Titan. I got sponsorship, and i planned out a bike: My titan
    The tentative cost is $1685. I was wondering if anyone has any advice, maybe technical problems, or any comments. Im doing all mountain, trails, and mid range freeride (nothing bigger than 9 feet) Im 5'7, 145. Thanks for the help.

    to your point though, at 145lbs you're not going to break the bike because of weight but as Ive said here before, its HOW you ride it that counts. If'in yur smooth, that bike will take anything you can dish out. Fact is, I seen small bmx'ers break 4130's so its really not about the bike (just like Lance says, right?)

    The Titan looks sweet though. Hang some sweet parts on her and I think you'll be pretty stoked.

    The prices i listed include the discount.

    I didnt really explain the original question well. I need to know if the parts will all work together. Also, for the parts the i wrote question marks or "help me out" on, i dont know what to get, or if i even need them. I would appreciate suggestions for those. What do you guys think of the build? Is the 15.5 too small for me, at 5'7? I ride a 17" right now, but i think the 18 is too big.
