I have a new ti cx frame on order and I'm making decisions. any advice would be appreciated. here's what I'm thinking about:

frame geometry: 72.5 deg HT, 73 degree ST, 65mm BB drop, top tube 5mm shorter than my roadbike (55.5cm)

fork: Alpha Q cross - I'm wondering about this because I think it has 47mm rake, is that OK? frame is non integrated.

crank: FSA mega whatever compact carbon 34/48 or 46.

brakes: spooky not carbon or pauls.

the rest is easy.
I don't have much experience with cross but I had a lot of fun trying it last year. thanks for any input.
