Chameleon 27.5+ Single Speed Dropout Kit
Versatility defines Santa Cruz's Chameleon and it's designed to adapt much like its namesake. Santa Cruz blessed every version of the Chameleon with the ability to swap from a hill leveling, gear and derailleur ride, to a flog yourself all-day singlespeed with a simple dropout swap. Furthering ambidexterity, the Chameleon v7.0 can transform from the fast rolling, nimble 29-inch tires to traction everywhere 27.5+ ones. The dropout system is modular and various kits are available to transform frames from 27.5+ to 29, boost to non-boost, and single-speed to geared use.
The kit we have here is the Chameleon 27.5+, 12 x 142mm spaced, single speed version. The dropouts slide horizontally to adjust chain tension and if you have non-boost hubs and you want to run plus wheels, this is the setup you need. The kit includes dropouts for both the drive and non-drive side and all the hardware necessary for the swap. Adapt your Chameleon for your needs and its environment.
