Juliana Joplin 2.0 Carbon 29 R1 Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 description:
The Juliana Joplin 2. 0 Carbon 29 R1 Complete Mountain Bike loves nothing more than spirited romps through the woods where sweeping berms, rowdy rocks, and elevated bridges pose a challenge to your riding skills. Although it could be categorized as a fast-rolling XC machine in 29er form, the Joplin 2. 0 doesn't like to be categorized, defying the 29er genre with its modern trail geometry that's nimble and fun to ride above all else. Inspired by the Santa Cruz's iconic Tallboy, the Joplin 2. 0 blurs the line between razor-sharp XC rig and spirited trail bike with its 110-millimeters of VPP suspension paired with a 120-millimeter fork. This combination of a bit less travel out back with greater plushness up front makes it pedal with resounding efficiency, but with extra margin of error when you're dropping into rocky descents and sending natural drops littered along the trail. Where the Joplin differs from the Tallboy lies within its female-specific shock tune. By tuning the rear shock for lighter riders, it feels more active tracking over rocks and roots, without it feeling overly harsh. New for this 2. 0 version of the Joplin, you'll find the ability to switch between 29 and 27. 5+ wheels with its integrated flip chip along the upper linkage. The flip chip rotates to allow the shock mount to migrate between high (29er) and low (27. 5+) settings, but without a drastic change in the bike's geometry. In fact, Juliana preserved the 68-degree head tube angle between both wheel sizes, and also retained the snappy 17-inch chainstays and low-slung 13-inch bottom bracket height for confident handling. For the 2. 0 incarnation of the Joplin, the reach has lengthened substantially, giving you a roomier cockpit with higher levels of control when you're dropping into high-speed descents. The VPP suspension gains 10-millimeters of travel over the previous version, aligning the Joplin with the new crop of do-it-all rigs with 4. 5-inches of travel. However, that's not to say ...
