This Item does not work as stated. You will need to purchase both side dropouts for wheel size to convert between 27.5 to 29er not just the drive side as stated. I hope someone reads this and makes the necessary changes to the listed item. It is for this reason that I am returning part. I will purchase both side dropouts once available.

Is the description different now from when you purchased? It states very clearly that this is only one side for 29er wheels and is to be used for when you need to replace your derailleur hanger.


Not sure but should there be a set of 2 parts to do this. 1 for left side and one for drive side? Buying 27.5+ chameleon with dropouts and want to convert to 29er also. Not sure how this works.

Hey Ron! The kit includes a drive-side dropout and all the hardware necessary for the swap


The picture shows a single drop out. Is this the correct one to buy to swap a 27.5+ chameleon to a 29 or would I need the KIT version? I also note that the tech specs say 142x12, but also Boost - these are different standards and I didn't think it could accommodate both with the same drop out?

Hi Sam The 27.5+ Chameleon is not convertible to 29, but you can run the 29er version with 27.5+ wheels. For that you would need
