I was thinking of swithcing all my parts from my Hardrock frame with the exception of the gears, to a Transition Trail-or-Park or Vargent. Would this be possible? Just a thought.

Some parts might not fit. Front derailleur, seat post, seat post clamp, bottom bracket. Make sure they're the same size.

With the BB(Non Shimano), if you have 73mm cups and the frame requires a 68 and the spindle length is correct, the 7emm cups can be shimmed down to 68 mm. If you have 68 mm cups and it requires a 73, then regardless of spindle width, you need a bb with 73mm cups but for most part, as of late most manufacturers take the cupsizes as universal with the shims. Only if Shimano BB's worked that way(Stupid integrated threads on one side.) By then though, you'd probably be ready for a new crankset as well.

actually, the bb on my trail-or-park is a 73. Kind of weird I know, I had to double check, but it is. I almost f-ed my bb because of the spacers were situated for a 68. Either way. You may want to check, the vagrant may be a 1.5 headtube, though I doubt it. It's not out of the realm of possibility.
