    Having been waiting for a new SC Chameleon frame from around April... it still hasn't arrived and i'm not sure it ever will (as i have now cancelled the order). after my old dually (yukon fx) was stolen the insurance payout increased the money i had laying about for a build. I originally looked at upgrading to a Ti Honzo to keep up that HT love... but not coming this year.

    canfield was having a sale and i already have a 140mm 2018 pike so here we are.

    not sure how the photos on my old phone are going to turn out but here they are.





    Current parts i have / plan to purchase:
    Frame: Large CB Riot Black
    Shock: DVO Jade, came with a 400lbs spring waiting on a 550 from NS
    Fork: 140mm Pike 2018
    Wheels: going to get some hope 4 built up with stans flow with some hans dampf rubber for now
    Headset: plan to buy a cane creek 40
    Stem: waiting on a 50mm from JT
    Bar: i got a random carbon one when a local bike store closed for $30 800mm
    Brakes: Hope V4
    Drivetrain: GX Eagle or XT, leaning towards the XT for cost of replacements
    Seatpost: going to get a revive once i work out if my legs are long enough for a 160mm it looks like it might be a close thing
    seat: Giant saddle that i got cheap, thinking of a silverado or some other seat with a low rise from rails to top
    pedals: i have the Vaults from my HT or the CB ones that came with the frame.
    Grips of some sort of grips happy for suggestions

    Canfield bikes ride very nicely. You'll be well pleased.

    Looking like a killer build. Loved my time on the Riot. From what I hear a coiled Riot is a monster
