Santa Cruz Bicycles Chameleon 29 Dropout Kit $79.99
Shape Shift Your Chameleon.
Santa Cruz's Chameleon is a versatile frame and we love how accommodating it is to our current mood. A simple dropouts swap takes the frame from a climb crushing derailleur and gear set up, to an off-season, less maintenance requiring single speed. Roll quickly on rough or buff trails with 29-inch tires and swap out for higher volume 27.5+ if you seek additional traction in loose conditions. The Chameleon v7.0 is happy to be 4 bikes in one provided you have the wheels and the dropout kits. 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 29 Dropout Kit and it's the one you'll need if you looking to put 29er wheels with non-boost hubs on your bike and run a derailleur. 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.
