Do you know if the green is the same as the Green Manitou Palmer SX TI forks?

SC only ever made these in four sizes and still do. They always measure centre BB to very top of seat tube in 2" increments. S=14", M=16", L=18", XL=20".

Mine's a medium 16"!

Odd that headtube thing though - what prefix is your frame number g_baz?

Lots more Chameleon pics here:

Well I've been meaning to update this for a while as the old Chameleon has gone through a few changes since this was posted way back in '08. I've been running it as a singlespeed for the last couple of years and I think other than the frame, headset, saddle and crank everything else has been changed. A few parts went onto the Kilaeua when it was built, the rims finally gave up and the 9 speed XT parts were sold on. Any way, heres a picture from this morning and an updated spec list. Still puts a smile on my face! :D

Frame: Santa Cruz Chameleon

Headset: Chris King Black (Gold Cap Bolt)

Chain: KMC Z510
Cranks: Shimano XT FC M752
Crank Bolts: Black One Key Release
Chainring: FSA DH Alloy CNC 3mm - 34t
Chainring Bolts: KCNC Black Anodised
Bottom Bracket: Shimano XT
Pedals: Shimano PD M540 SPD

Hub Skewers: Pewter Ringle Twister (Front), Silver Bolt Through (Rear)

Great frame. I've had two. One set up as a light weight single speeder, in yellow. The other was more of a DJ/DH/Freeride rig with a 6 inch fork, disc brakes and 1x9 gears. Wish I kept pics of 'em. Actually, I really wish I still had them.
