I have a few concerns about your crossbow. The first is that those pulleys max out at around 50lbs. You are seriously at risk of flying shrapnel if they fail. Second is your choice of wood for the tiller. Pine is too weak, especially where you compromised it's integrity with the wide slot through it. Third, your plywood trigger is FAR to weak. It's not a matter of if it will break, rather it's a matter of when, and it launches it's arrow at whoever is unlucky enough to be nearby. Finally, your bow may be tied, but there is nothing stopping it from shifting on the tiller. You stand a very good chance of having it break loose and ending up with a face full of taped metal bars. You're on the right track, but try and focus a bit more on what 'may' go wrong. If it seems like it may be too weak, it probably is.
