So after fettling the brakes, next up was trying to sort out the Chameleon a bit more. First up some more grip up front for winter.

Decided that whilst the Crossmark has been fine for local trails it’s been a bit out of it’s depth on the hills so trying the High Roller to see if it copes better.

Secondly was trying to improve the shifting. Even with the new shifter, it still wasn’t great. There was a fair bit of play in the basic pressed steel derailleur and the all alloy construction of the X01 setup is definitely better.

It is still not perfect. About the only thing left to change is the cassette. Can it be that? New chain, chainring and cassette in the New Year will prove it…
