I'm hoping you knowledgeable folks might be able to offer some advice on a frame swap. Basically, I have a 2011 Specialized Hardrock Disc 29er with 17.5 inch frame -

and I would like to swap the components into a 19.5 inch Planet-X frame -

I realise that there will be differences in the cable length, chain length and seat post. A new front mech will also be needed as the old one is top pull. I've also taken a look at this article -

Are there any other potential issues I might run into?
Thanks
