    We are running ours with 130mm Revelations and they are spot on.

    rev or maybe a reba if XC?

    I’ve run as short as 110mm (handles like a big BMX) and as long as 160mm (handles like a mini-DH bike) on a Cham of that era. I’d be happy with 120mm for “general XC”, but a bit longer won’t hurt.

    I put 120mm Reba’s on mine. Had 150mm Marzocchi’s before, felt a bit of a slog on any XC type stuff.

    You can’t go wrong with Reba’s/Revs i think. Easy to maintain and plentiful on ebay, just remember to get the non-tapered ones.

    I’ve run 100mm on a chameleon and it was ace, now running a 85-130mm u turn recon,
    Bang on.
    Revs would be your best bet IMHO

    That’s the beauty of the chameleon, plenty of scope for travel variations

    Thanks for all the replies!
    I think I’ll go for one of the Rock Shox models somewhere around 110-140mm.

    The joy of a Chameleon is that you can shove pretty much anything on there and it’ll be ace. I’d go for a set of U-Turn Revelations, Wind it down to 100mm for XC, up to 140 for playing silly buggers. Its a win/win 😀

    Can you get that non-tapered with 9mm QR?
