Santa Cruz Chameleon Al 29 Mountain Bike Frame 2022
Known for its singletrack abilities, Santa Cruz’s Chameleon Al 29 Mountain Bike Frame is now more versatile than ever, so it can be built up as a hard-hitting trail bike, singlespeed racer or bikepacking explorer.
Optimised for a 130mm fork, the aluminium frame features an interchangeable dropout system that can be used for 29” or 27.5” wheels. As the design means that it can slide forwards or backwards by 12mm there is scope for tensioning a singlespeed chain or tweaking the chainstay length to alter the handling. As well as the single bottle cage mount within the frame, there are three bolts on the underside of the downtube for another bottle or the addition of luggage.
The geometry is reasonably long, low and slack, but without negating the nimble, playful feel that the Chameleon has always delivered.
