    At first, I was having trouble wrapping my mind around your color scheme, but then I saw the picture of the bike with the jersey. Nice bike.

    I have the 125 LEV on my Chameleon. Sure does make going downhill and hitting jumps a lot easier.

    Hi guys.. here's another dark blue lizard, my "Jeans™":





    Just got mk.5 frame, feels nicer with slightly longer TT but I like the look of seatstay area of the old one better.
    Components are from my old black chameleon 4, except the headset of course..
    Also I actually didn't really like the dark blue color, preferred the tennis yellow one.. but after 2nd thought this color is OK and less flashy for occasional commuter / B2W duties. I will be covered in mud on the mountain anyways

    Cheers!

    Strongly considering buying Chameleon 4 at VPLS to build it up with parts lying around - have few questions though...

    Does it have eccentric bottom bracket ? If yes, what do I need to build it up ? Have Shimano SLX crank with external BB that came with it...

    Does it have tapered head tube like current version ? Is there anything else in terms of parts fit I need to know ?

    Any discount codes somebody happens to have ?

    is does have a eccentric BB, your SLX crank will work just fine.

    does not have a tapered head tube it is 1 1/8

    everything else is just standard.

    Recently bought this for my first bike, a large SS 04 Root Beer Chameleon.

    Doesn't have the newest or shiniest parts, but I'm in love with it. Exploring trails and building skills on this thing has been a blast. Picking up MTBing as a hobby was one of the best decisions of my life.

    Looks a lot like my 05 Chameleon that got me deeper into mountain biking. When I think Chameleon, I really picture the ver2 lizards like yours and mine, they're truest to the form about being a versatile do it all bike. Bike is just as good at 100mm of travel as at 140mm. The new ones are just so focused on long travel/slack trail slayers that they're not as true to the name IMO.

    My 5 is an XL and I'm 6 foot (long inseam). If anything, it is too small. Try a large.

    Hi All,
    Origin: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
    Photo taken: Bukit Kiara

    Just got this used Chameleon last Saturday nite, swapped the brake & pedal, and hit the trail the next morning.

    My Ride:
    Santa Cruz Chameleon shining black (can anyone the which year is the model?)
    Probably M size due to measurement made against SC's website (still not sure which year I should refer to)
    RockSHox Reba RLT 120mm
    Avid BB7
    Full XT 3x10 Groupset
    Crankbrothers Eggbeater
    KCNC Handlebar & Seatpost
    ZTR Arch EX + Hope + Bontrager 2.35 - Front
    Mavic 317 + MVR Racing Pro + Kenda Nevegal 2.1 - Rear


    Butt feeling tells this bike ride taller than my previous Kona Cindercon '05.

    Cant remember if I have posted in this thread already.... So will do again, if I did already haha

    Have owned 4 Chammy frames, without doubt my favourite frame of all time.

    Owned one of the second generation frames in my teens, the first with disc tabs. Was in as new condition but never got round to building it up, big regret.

    This was my second, was an eBay purchase and advertised as a large, like a donut I didn't really look at the pics, got the frame then when building it up a couple months later I wondered why my fork steerer was too short, then realised it was an XL frame, built it up with a bit of a mix match of bits n pieces and still had fun on itPost your lizards. (Chameleon)-003-25.jpg

    This was my last build and favourite bike ever owned.

    And last but not least, this is my current build in progress, got the frame in June, hoping to have her built by the end of the year, going for Fox 34 Talas 150's, XTR 2x10, Hope pro 2/Flow Ex etc etc

    What year/model is this?

    Hi there, just about to pull the trigger on this chameleon but wanted to know what year it is? The seller thinks it might be 2009 but I doubt it, any web site describing all chameleon models/years as to different frame builds???
    Any objections as to this specific model?Post your lizards. (Chameleon)-1012815_10151748184784740_1644624024_n.jpg

    Thanks in advance for any help!!!
