I have ALWAYS wanted one of these ever since they first appeared in MBUK back in the late 90s, at around £500 in those days they were well out of my league and being a spotty teenager who's only income was from a Saturday job at the local co-op, (£2.21 per hour!) I was never going to be able to afford one
I have been semi after one ever since but never got round to it...
I recently decided that I was going to build a 'hardcore hardtail' and picked up a dmr trailstar long travel off pinkbike for £55 (which is now for sale) but when I saw this chameleon up for sale yesterday at a bargain price I couldn't resist and to top it off the guy only lived 2 miles away from me!!!
The build will start today and will consist of rock shox revelations, a mix of deore/slx/xt, hope bulbs on 321s, renthal fat bars and what ever else I can dig out of the treasure trove
I think a race face crank will be on the cards at a later date
Here she is this morning:
