You have to make sure all the parts you have are compatible with the new frame.

Most of the time just about all of the parts are interchangable. The parts that most often don't fit when switching frames is the front derailleur, chain, and seatpost. If you are going to a smaller frame your fork will most likely fit. You will have to replace the cables. The other thing to check is the bottom bracket size. Once you get the new bike you will have to decide if you need a shorter or longer stem as well.
