    Love the yellow!

    A $350 impulse buy on a clearance frame and a bunch of (mostly) spare parts later, I now have this:



    - Fox 32 TALAS 140mm 15QR fork
    - X0 cranks and 180F/160R brakes
    - Mavic EX 721 laced to Chris King hubs w/ DT Comps

    And a matching navy blue King BB and headset on order!

    Bike is dope how you like it with the SS setup and 140 fork? I have a 2013 model coming with a 150 revelation SS setup so it should be similar except you have super balling wheels. Under 22lbs?

    I've been sitting on this for a while now with plans to build it up into a single-speed but nevr followd through. Actually, it's been assembled numerous times, I just have bad knee/wrists problems and never got to ride it. I figured I'd post it up for you guys to enjoy before I list it for sale.

    They could definitely use some more stickers on the rims. Not enough I say.

    A local buddy painted it and sourced a couple decals from SantaCruz as he rides for a team sponsored by them.

    Have got a 2011 white chameleon. Don't have enough posts so I can't attach a photo but if you click on my profile, I have an album with some pictures of it.

    Spower, I love the set up of this bike as a single speed. I have built many of these frames over the years and this one is the best to date. The previous models always felt like a jack hammer to me, this one doesn't. It weighs 23 lbs. even. I could easily save more if I changed the tires but I am enjoying it the way it is.

    Satanrules, what size is your frame and how tall are you? Will there be any interference between the frame and the fork if you use a zero stock head sets in there?

    The frame is a large, I am about 5'10". You could run a flush bottom with a 1 1/8" fork but not a tapered fork. SC uses a 49mm lower if they used a 56mm you would be all set.

    Good to hear that the new model is on point... I was about to get the older model for 350 on the Cruz website but seeing your build and thoughts have justify me spending 750. Plus it's all about the color and the new colors are dope. You should sell me your enve wheels haha are they worth it? so ballin but they would put a dent it my wallet! 23lbs is awesome

    To all of you: Im planning to use some hopes... first in the rear... Wich is the best (in terms of size) to fit in the Cham4 at 10 speed???? In front I already have a 9mmQR fork.. my doubt is in the rear...

    Thanks in advanced for your advice

    howdy all, my chameleon has changed its look. remember this?
    Post your lizards. (Chameleon)-p1000303-1024x768-.jpg
    unfortunately after redamaging an old shoulder injury i've had to give up serious mtb to keep my shoulder okay for work. so i get home after work each day and my bike's there in the garage tormenting me. so i thought i'd have some fun turning it into something cool to cruise around the city cycleways.

    it's a bit of an impractical show pony really, but does ride beautifully. the salsa fork is a 29 length, 470a-c, which gives sweet handling. trouble is now it begs to go rip some singletrack. damn you shoulder!!!
