Santa Cruz Chameleon Hardtail Bike

The Chameleon is a perennial favorite, trusted by legions to get the job done. They updated the bike with 27.5" wheels, but they've kept the geometry largely unchanged to ensure this most versatile of hardtails remains exactly that.

All the cleverly thought out features like interchangeable rear dropouts, tapered head tube and ISCG05 mounts remain, but are now joined by some welcome upgrades such as stealth dropper routing and 142mm rear axle spacing.
