    @Faust29, you’re the man :thumbsup:

    I was thinking 29+ front 275+ rear on Beefy could be something... :geek: 130 air shaft going in Pike now. :sneaky:

    If the rear of the PH is boost, you could always throw the plus wheel I have on and try. I’ve ridden 29 rear and plus front. For test purposes, you could do the opposite...

    Somebody should build and market a bike with a 27.5 rear and a 29er front! Think of the advantages of mixing those two sizes in that way! It could be called the Blender? They could do a trail version and a burlier version. I am sure the idea would have some foes, but most would probably like the mix!

    I see what you did there. :cautious: :stop: :D

    Mixing plus wheels and 29ers isn't really that dramatic, though...

    Yesterday was a sad day for me. I may have taken my last ride on my Chameleon before selling it. I have to recoup some money that will be used toward my new ride. (Deposit already made waiting for delivery :thumbsup:) Although I would very much like to keep both bikes I am not in a position to do so. I'm starting here on my journey to sell. I'd like very much for it to be sold to someone that is an IMTBtrails member and fan of the Lizard. Any help would be appreciated. I'll post an official FOR SALE thread soon. Thanks

    They are really good bikes, I hope it sells quickly for you. I bought mine to see about all the newfangled technology and design. Was not disappointed!

    Yeah those oil-slicked sets look bad-ass,but fetch another $20 over the regular Vaults, but I might need to pick up a set and add to the DMR collection.

    Was really close to getting them... would have sprung for the the extra bit if I went with Vaults over Chesters.
