    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.

    So are we safe to assume you are a Santa Cruz fan? haha. Sweet lookin rides man! How do you like your White brothers fork?

    give us some details about your build parts, so we can all drool some more!

    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    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

    Continental Escape and Explorer tires
