Juliana Joplin 2.0 Carbon 27.5+ R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018

The Juliana Joplin 2. 0 Carbon 27. 5+ R Complete Mountain Bike's DNA from its bigger brother, the Santa Cruz Tallboy cannot be ignored. The build here is a 27+ version taking advantage of boost-spacing's wider tire clearance and shock linkage flip chips. SRAM's NX group adds value to this ride and its versatile nature gives you a trail bike that is ready to shred with your buddies with no sibling rivalry. Perhaps the biggest difference between the Joplin and the Tallboy is in the shock tune. The setup is custom for lighter riders since Juliana calculates that typical women cyclists are around 30lb lighter, on average, than men. No more having to send your shock to a shop to get a custom tune or using all of that VPP travel. If you're wanting extra traction and a more forgiving ride over roots and babyhead rocks, the 27. 5+ on this build is the way to go. If you're looking for quick acceleration and a nimble feel, good news, a wheel swap lets you run larger diameter 29er wheels and tires.A flip chip sits in the suspension link and can be positioned allowing the shock mount to move a few millimeters. Repositioning the shock attachment point and extending or reducing the fork length effectively accounts for the difference between 27. 5+ and 29-inch wheel/tire systems, keeping the geometry as static as possible across wheel sizes. Headtube and seatube angles as well as travel remains the same after wheels are swapped, chips are flipped, and forks adjusted.The 68-degree headtube angle strikes a perfect balance between downhill, lean back steep confidence and cross-country agility. Since the flip chip allows that number to stay the same whether you're running a 29in wheels with a 120mm fork or 27. 5+ with 130mm, the bike will handle very similarly and your wheel size decision can be distilled into your riding style and terrain. The frame's chainstays and reach are up-to-date with the stays just over 17-inches and reach bumps up dramatically across all sizes. Confi...
