Post your lizards.

Why is there no Chameleon thread at the top of this page? I think it's time one got started. Here's mine...







The world's most expensive headbadge.


Homemade bashguard, ala E.T.R., unfortunately mounted on interim cranks.

I just ordered a White Chameleon last month, so hopefully I'll see mine relatively soon.
Although I'll be running gears on mine.

My parts spec will be:
'01 Z1
Sram drivetrain
and the rest will be whatever I find laying around the house. I think I have everything....

I think the Z1 is a better way to go than what Ill be using but for the moment, I have the Marathon so its a better budget item.

I have some used but good cond. SRAM stuff I could trade ya for some thing you might have sitting around that I need. Think about it and let me know if ya care. We can compare "parts" then. Man, that sounds wrong.

2003 Trans Gold
Let me know when you are ready to part with that Trans Gold for a different color/frame. I've been wanting to get a newer Chameleon (in fact lost an auction for a white one). I really want it to be Trans Gold for some reason....

XL Chameleon SS

My other bikes are jealous of my new baby. I'm diggin' the stickerless shiny finish.
She weighs in at 27 lbs. right now but I've got it on a strict weight loss program. I'll have her down to 24 in no time. I hope it won't fold under my 215 lb. (and climbing) carcass. I just wanted at least ONE lightweight bike in my stable.

Thats good news, my steel frame weighs about the same and is a little smaller.
Hows she climb?
It climbs like a hardtail. Wait a minute - it IS a hardtail. Actually, I'm accustom to 34 lb. (and up) FS bikes, so a hardtail in the 24 lb range is like a dream to me. It climbs really well - the only thing slowing me down is my fitness level.

Sounds like what I need, my steel bike is about 28-29 lb loaded with soft tires,
seat, and cush zoke.
what do you think is a fair price for a 1-2 year old frame in good condition.
also any known issues, things to look for (cracks in seat stay junction..)?

I got lucky with mine. I got it used off mtbr for $150 with headset, seatpost quick release. It was the Jenson branded version of the Chameleon. I was going to strip the paint anyway so I didn't care. I don't see any differences between the two. I wouldn't pay more than $300 for a used one since new ones are only $450. $250 would be a good price. I haven't noticed any problems with the frame, but I've only had mine for a couple of months. One thing to note are the wide, beefy chainstays. I was smacking my 180mm crankarms on them so I had to change to a 118mm bb and bolt my chainring on the outside of the spider. But the chainline is perfect now.
