Hmm, with those rims tachoed and stuff, I wonder how much the 2002 (whoops though it was a 2002 its a 2003) stuff frame can take. Drop wise, becuase that's the only way I know of.

Not a big fan of the chameleon especially since I test rode one this summer it did not feel like I would be happy on it day in and day out.
