    Where to purchase the Chameleon!!

    Alright guys, starting to get antsy on jumping on a Chameleon but can't find anywhere to purchase one online. No luck through lbs around so going to have to order but I'm also having no luck. So I figured I would hear from you guys and how some of you ordered them.

    I've tried SC site and couldn't find anything else besides the price kits for the bike. When I looked at their online dealers, I either A) Couldn't find the right size. 5'9 so most likely looking for a medium correct? B) Only option was a 1x10DH setup (Competitivecyclist)
    So any help would be greatly appreciative. I want to join the family too!

    ...And of course, after I post this I come across the damn thing! haha.
    Found a couple on Cambriabike.com Just have a few questions...
    - Anyone have experience ordering from them? First time ordering a bike over the net so I don't want it to be a sketchy buy.
    - Santa Cruz Chameleon D XC Hardtail Bikes 2013 100126233 at CambriaBike.com
    ^^^that's the link to the one I found. Just wondering if you guys could take a quick look at it and just make sure everything looks alright and I haven't overlooked anything.

    cambria is good. ordered my dad a tallboy c a couple of years ago. took a little while, because they were hard to get, but were transparent through the process and gave updates.

    i am pretty sure he would order one from them again.

    That's a Chameleon 4, which is fine, but the current one is 5: tapered head-tube, slacker geo, ISCG05 mounts, no eccentric BB.
    Got mine from Speedgoat on line.

    Speedgoat is gone/dead/closed/kaput.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    Trebron, did you order the frame or complete bike? If so, where did you find the full setup because I can't find them anywhere on there. All I keep getting is the bronson and tallboy models

    Just the frame. I've got a stack of shiny new parts sitting here and its driving me insane!

    From the SC site
    If there are no Authorized SCB dealers in your area (within 30 miles), you have two options:
    A) Go to your favorite local bike shop, and have them order a bike for you.
    They need to be a retail bicycle shop dealing in new bikes with a storefront and a service department, a re-sale license, and need to be no closer than 30 miles to an existing SC Dealer. Have them call our Sales Office at 831-459-7560 and ask for the inside rep for their area. We can help sort it out from there.

    B) Order your bike Mail Order through one of our Authorized mail order dealers:

    As far as the parts go, what am I going to need once the bike comes to my door. Never purchased a bike online some I'm curious as to how the bike is going to come in the box
