I had a great experience with the Stache (aluminum) and obviously it wins on 29+ tire clearance but I’d be building both options the same - 120mm Manitou Mattoc Pro, 29x3” SE4 on i40 front, 29x2.6” SE5 on i40 rear, stays ~ full long - and absent the need for 29x3”+ rear clearance the Chameleon is my winner. It’s lighter, better SS dropouts in use, geo is more over-forking friendly, slacker to begin with, and the planes of stiffness/compliance are more tuned (Stache tuned around elevated stays). Any of those things is a tiny improvement but it adds up to a win for Chameleon.
