New frame......

I can't wait to build this thing up. All I'm waiting for is my White Brothers fork to get here.

BTW, check out the disc mount, Santa Cruz finally started welding them onto the frame.

Trails, planning on using it for xc. I currently race a Santa Cruz Superlight. The measurements and angles are almost identical so it should be easy to go back and forth between them. That way when the races aren't too technical I can race the hardtail.

Here is a pic of my superlight. The build is going to be pretty similar for the Chameleon.

Yeah, sorta like SC. Didn't get their road bike though. Went with the Giant Composite TCR 1. That bike is awesome.

As for the White Brothers fork I love it. It is the best feeling fork I have ever ridden. What sucks is that I really don't know how to explain it. I just does everything that I expect a fork to do and then some.

As for the builds......

The Superlight:

Large annodized frame
Fox RL shock w/ava
White Bros XC 1.0 fork
FSA Orbit Pro headset
FSA Carbon Pro cranks
Race Face Signature XS BB
Thomson seatpost
Bontrager Race Stem
Easton carbon bar
Magura Marta SL disc brakes
Hugi 240 hubs, Mavic 317 rims
XTR cassette
egg beater pedals
XT shifters
XT derailleurs
Hutchison Python Airlight tires running tubeless using Stans (have switched to Continental)

The Chameleon:
White Bros XC 1.0 fork
FSA Orbit Pro headset
Shimano XT Crank and bb
Thomson Stem
Thomson Seatpost
FSA bar
Magura Marta SL disc brakes
Hugi Hubs, Mavic X223 rims (will use the wheels from Superlight for racing though)
XT cassette
egg beater pedals
XT Shifters
XT derailleurs
Continental Escape and Explorer tires
