Santa Cruz's Chameleon takes versatility to the next level and we love how easy the bike lets us customize it whenever we want. By simply changing the dropouts, the bike transforms from a climbing friendly, multi-gear steed to a quad burning, bar torquing single speed. Race cross-country on fast rolling 29-inch tires and swap out for high volume 27.5+ for looser all-mountain trail riding. The Chameleon v7.0 is happy to oblige provided you have the wheels and the proper dropout kit. The system is modular and kits are available shape-shifting frames from 27.5+ to 29, non-boost to boost, and single-speed to geared use.
The version we have here is the Chameleon 27.5+ Dropout Kit and it's the one you'll need if you looking to put plus wheels with non-boost hubs on your bike and run gears. The kit includes dropouts for both the drive and non-drive side and all the hardware necessary for the swap. Feel free to adapt your Chameleon to its natural environment.
