- Carbon Chameleon*
This particular fame must be due for renewal soon
why? it had a geo update a couple of years ago and then went to 27.5 the year after that?Posted 3 years ago
full disclosure – chameleon owner. the last 26″ version. i’d buy another in a heartbeat.
not sure i’d trust a carbon one after i’d dropped a mattock on the TT, to choose an example thing that might have happened. 😳andysredminiMember
I love my chameleon but don’t think I would want a carbon one.Posted 3 years ago
I bought mine as a cheaper bike than my full suss to jump and generally abuse especially in the bad weather. I wouldn’t be adverse to a carbon bike for this purpose but I don’t feel like it would offer any benefit other than a little bit of weight saving. Its not like the chameleon frame needs to get any stiffer. The carbon would likely cost a similar price to the other carbon hardails that santacruz build which average around £1600 which is £1000 more than an aluminium chameleon frame costs.NorthwindSubscriber
The C456 Evo will be great once they order the extra 2 inches of reach they forgot for the larger sizes last time. Same weird On One sizes, they get taller as you go up a size but not much longer so the medium’s only 7mm longer than the small. Daft.
Have to admit, I thought the C456 would kind of blow the doors off the carbon lt hardtail thing but it’s never really happened. Maybe because a lot of the manufacturers discovered they can sell really, really expensive alu and cromo instead.Posted 3 years ago
