    Nice bike, like the colors and simple graphics.

    Much obliged. It's definitely not the trend as far as current industry colors are concerned but I thought it was slick looking. Hopefully it holds up well. For my level of riding, I don't have any reason to think it wont.

    DVO Sapphire or Diamond, depending on how hard you party. I think a Sapphire would be perfect on a Chameleon unless you are spending a lot of time airborne or you're bigger.

    Yeah Gary me love this bike like cookie monster love cookies.

    I've said this before, so I'm not trying to beat a dead horse here, but I came off of a four-year-old, very XC oriented (geo) Performance special. I demoed a ton of bikes (full suspension and hardtail Konas, Treks, Pivots, Specs, etc.). They all were obviously "better" than what I was riding, but really only felt like incremental improvements. This bike pretty much instantly felt like a game changer, like "Oh, that's a thing, is it?". I got about 5 miles in and spent the rest of the ride doing math. I refused to leave the shop without a pedälhead that day. Hence the Green Hell (not my first color choice, but growing on me) and 120 fork. I wasn't waiting!

    Allison and the rest of the gang are super cool over there too. Got some black decals on the way, no idea why my shop ordered it with white decals when EVERYTHING on the bike is black. I peeled that shit off after two weeks.

    Plus, they'll let you spec it out pretty much custom too, for a reasonable price, which I think is a sweet option. And it's handmade in the USA. And, ok, ok...sorry for the fanboy rant.

    I'd imagine an October ride in Denver will be just about badass! Enjoy!

    2016, Orbea Loki H30. Super, super fun bike. It's kinda long and heavy, but I am consistently surprised at what I can do on this bike. It can wheelie, ride skinnies, and shred just like my old non-plus hardtail. I also purchased a custom 29er wheelset from CRC just to add to the versatility!

    I'm one of those myself.... in the camp that got a bike and less about the color or not my first choice. Seeing that a lot by others too. Most say they get used to it after a while. Looking back now after 5 months, I'm kind of glad it's what it is. Just a solid color with the simple graphics as well.

    I'm sorry, but where did you take the picture of the Tomcat? My Dad was in the Screaming Eagles in the 80s as an Aviation Structural Mechanic and that may be one of his birds..

    This particular bird is in Huntsville Alabama, at the aviation challenge course near Davidson Space and Rocket Center. The trail is called Tri for Ole Glory, short but really fun. Once the rain let's up in 4 days and dries I'll get more shots, there are lots more birds and helicopters around the trail to sight see! That's be crazy if it were one if his, I'm curious so let me know!

    Brakes are perfect, used to ride the guides, xtr trail and hopes, but this is spot on, more power then any other and far better modulation than shimano and the guide’s

    Still fond of that Scott model. Great looking bike. I test rode that and the Big Jon at the same time and the + was awesome. Problem was I couldn't afford that trim level and was looking at the next one down which wouldn't be available for 4 more months.

    @Smithhammer

    Awesome so far.

    Coming off a Norco Range Carbon (In the background of the pic I posted) and the difference on the trail is unbelievable. So much more grip when ascending and descending. Frame is loads lighter and the Switch Infinity seems as good as it is made out to be so just flies up the climbs. In general much faster than the Norco however on a couple of descents it was a few seconds behind, more importantly though it's about twice as fun!

    Only issue I've had with it in the first 40 miles are pedal strikes due to the lower BB, but just a case of being aware and getting used to it.

    Planned upgrades at the moment are, ordered by priority:
    Crank boots
    32t front chainring (Running out of gearing on fast descents but got more than enough on the way up)
    Renthal FatBar Carbon Lite 20mm rise
    Renthal Apex 30mm Stem
    Full groupset going up to Shimano XT (Brakes, chain and shifters all SLX currently)

    This is what really sold me on this bike. It climbs so incredibly well, even with the shock fully open. Switch Infinity has some amazing juju going on. That, and that it's the most nimble, playful full-sus plus bike I've thrown a leg over.


    Only issue I've had with it in the first 40 miles are pedal strikes due to the lower BB, but just a case of being aware and getting used to it.
    Yeah, the BB is definitely on the low side. I swapped in some 170 cranks, crank boots and a MRP micro bash guard.

    Other recent upgrades:

    RF Aeffect 35mm stem
    RE Next 35 760mm bar
    RF Aeffect saddle

    And I'm about to pull my Fox Factory Float 34 off another bike and put it on the Yeti.
