Trying out SRAM 1X11 system potentially for next year's Joey model range.
I would think it would be a good match. lighter than an Alfine 11 but with a similar range (7 hours ago)Alex Bessonoff:
What is a range? (7 hours ago)Matthew Bird:
Nice but not sure I get a disc on the back and road brake on the front. (3 hours ago)
We've been having a bit of snow in the UK, but nothing like Airnimal owner, Frank B, has been enjoying in Switzerland!
Hay Ting Tee:
Must be a 4 wheel drive.
With spikes I presume. (3 days ago)Baz Cartledge:

Hey riders, hope u can clear my doubts.... I’m interested in upgrading my components to the latest ultegra DI2. Anyone knows whether it can be done?
On my Joey. The battery position is a bit clunky though. (1 week ago)Lee Kukor Morgan:
Hi Joe I have Di2 11 speed on my Chameleon but rear only. I couldn't get the front Mech to fit on the braze on as there's not enough clearance for my version of front mech. They do seem to be getting smaller with each new incarnation of Di2 but I still think you'll struggle. The battery is the next problem I mount an external under the bars and run a long wire to the rear mech. 1 (1 week ago)Ian McCormick:
Talk to Airnimal. (6 days ago)
As promised - and with permission from the Group’s Admin, here is my For Sale listing for my Airnimal Chameleon, which sadly I have no further use for. About 12 years old, it has spent most of its life in Southern Spain and purchased so that it was easily air-transportable. That requirement has now gone… I am posting it here first for the benefit of the group, before going to the dreaded ebay…
It has the larger of the 2 frames sizes (18” c-t) and is equipped with the period 105 triple 9-speed gruppo.
With the seatpin shown at maximum extension, the measurement from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle (measured along the centreline of the seatpin) is a little over 32 inches. With a longer seatpin of course longer inseam lengths could be accommodated.
The usual age related marks of course - most of which have been ‘sympathetically’ touched in, so it looks pretty tidy. Most notable marking is the usual ‘snail trail’ corrosion on the anodised 105 brake levers (see pic). Note that this is an early version with the quill stem.
The hardwired FlightDeck computer still work as far as I am aware - but since the inception of Garmins and MapMyRide hasn’t been used for some time. There are marks on it where I clumsily flipped the bike over to repair a puncture once (again see pic).
Although they are fine, if I were keeping this bike I would probably be changing the cassette and chain…
No pedals supplied, but you are not going to ride this away anyway because in addition what you see in the photographs it also comes with (but not shown)
- 2 x new spare Kenda Koncept tyres with tags
- 2 x part worn Panaracer amber wall slick tyres (dirty).
- 1 x part worn Panaracer Pasela Tourguard amber wall tyre (dirty)
- 1 x new spare inner tube.
- 1 x new unused rear rack with fittings.
- 1 x new unused pair of black plastic mudguards with fittings.
- 1 x used soft carry bag (absolutely useless and never used by me hah!).
- …and if I can find it (so this is not part of the deal, but if I find it you can have it) 1 x very used hardcase air transportable suitcase. It was a REAL faff to use - and I finally gave up and started using a standard bike bag instead -and thus I am going to have to search the loft and garage etc.,
I am looking £750 for everything…
I have the frame number but will not publish here on a public forum. If you want to know please pm me.
Collection only from Luton, Bedfordshire at your convenience - but I will away between the 12th - 20th December. Virtually every other date and time can be accommodated though.

Just a few pics of a ride to Settle and Black Bank from Oysterber Farm Holiday Cottages where I live. It is a fairly hilly ride and 32 miles.

Question for the admin / mods. I have a 12-year old Chameleon to sell (after some refettling - I haven't used it for two years). Is it OK to post it here for sale before I go to ebay?
I’ve seen others offer bikes for sale on this site and they haven’t attracted been taken down by the moderator.
Good luck with your sale. (3 weeks ago)Anne Lewis:
Thanks for asking - yes please do post your Chameleon here. (3 weeks ago)
