Post more pic's, these boards can get pretty slow sometimes. It looks like you enjoy playing around with some light-FR'ing, how does the 5.5 handle this type of riding for you?

The 5.5 is an aggressive xc, AM bike . The chassis is very strong and with the right component you can do light FR with it.
I feel that the head angel is slightly steep with a 5 inch fork like the Fox talas that I have.
You can solve this by putting a longer travel fork, like the pike.
But don't go too big because eventually they will break.
