    New Chameleon build

    A few months ago I did a swap with a guy and got this medium '04 Santa Cruz Chameleon. I built it up for fun mostly over the last few weeks. It turned out pretty nice with a black and silver theme. Everything is new except the frame was gently used. I'm hoping a friend of mine will buy it for what I have into it (about $550) if not, you guys will see it again with a link to an ad in the classifieds.

    I had heard there was something challenging about building SS Chameleons, I not sure what. It is likely either a chainline or disc brake issue. I used a 9 speed disc wheelset so, I had mucho chainline adjustability. I also used V-brakes so, no issues there. It weighs just under 24#. I think this is a pretty versatile bike, with the wheels I put on it can go geared if desired and frame, fork and wheels are all disc ready as well.

    Nice rig.
    The problem arises when using it with disc brakes and set-up SS.
    With v's, not much of an issue at all.
    It's sad that SC has done such a poor job at dealing with that pesky issue.
