Well a few months ago I returned to MTBR and asked the fine folks here for some advice on my new purchase to return to mountain biking. After asking my questions and reading a ton here on the boards about different things and all I finally decided that the bike of choice was the SantaCruz Chameleon. I found a local dealer and stopped in to talk about it with them. The LBS was simply awesome to work with and they are very much top on my list for return business and service for my new toy. I ended up with the Dam build kit (swapped out the "stock" headset for a Chris King NoThreadset) and Fox F-120 RLC front suspension..... and then it was time to wait and that wait paid off as this past saturday I got to pick up my new bike. So without further delay, here she is in all her glory. Enjoy guys.... I am already planning some upgrades lol :-D
I built her with long term use and growth of skill in mind. I wanted something that would hold up to my weight well (currently 265# but I am doing a fitness program called CrossFit and mountain biking now so hopefully some of that weight will be going away sooner or later :-) ) and be a good bike a year or so down the road when I am getting more skilled and ready to tackle some tougher challenges.
