Hi!

So the "depth" of this bag would be measured in cubic centimeters, which would be the volume of the bag. That being 210 cc. That measures to be 65mm x 120mm x 30mm (Width, Length, Height) approx.

I don't believe your awesome Crank Bro. lever will fit with the length of the bag, it being 120mm long.

I researched out minimal bags and unable to find one that would be long enough, unless you went with a tubular tire bag.

Otherwise you are going to have to look into bigger bags or just slip that sucker into a back jersey pocket.

Let me know if you need anymore suggestions! I'm happy to help.

Cheers!

Jon,

Looks like I have to bite my tongue.

Even though their site shows those as the batteries, they are apparently aren't replaceable.

They TAKE those batteries, but aren't swap-able.

This battery is designed for use with Lezyne Super Drive XL, Power Drive XL, Super Drive (2012), and Power Drive (2012) LED lights. Each battery comes in a machined aluminum tube with rubber end caps for storage and protection from moisture or grime until it is needed. All Lezyne batteries are quality tested for capacity and performance before leaving Lezyne's factory. To get the best performance out of Lezyne LED lights, we recommend only using Lezyne batteries. LIR 18650 Lithium Ion rechargeable battery for use in the Power Drive and Super Drive LED lights. SPEC: 2400 mAh, 3.7V, 2Amp.

And

This high-capacity Lithium Ion Rechargeable (LIR) battery is designed for use with Lezyne?s performance LED lights.

So sorry for the confusion.

OSEP650478, <br/>  <br/> Hey! <br/>  <br/> So, Santa Cruz...

OSEP650478,

Hey!

So, Santa Cruz doesn't have model years per se, however they obviously come out with new models and colors.

That being said, The color we have in stock would be this one. And actually, it looks a little more gunmetal in real life. (See Pictures)

Yes, this would be the color option the offered before the newer options they offer on their site of Orange and the other Black.

I would love to talk more with you on this, if you had anymore questions on this frame.

Please give me a call anytime: 801-736-6396 EXT 4368

Or email: kconrad@competitivecyclist.com

Let's get you into some dirt!

Cat,

Castelli runs pretty race aggressive, so I could understand your confusion with sizing. But don't take it too much to heart. I'm Medium in most things, but certainly not with Castelli.

My friend has these and she wears a medium in Castelli (5 foot 6, 135 lb, 28 inch waist) and these shorts fit true to size for her.

I, however, am 5'4/5'5, 150 and I wear a large in this. 30 waist, but big hips and muscular quads.

I believe that you if you are a med in the Due but feel as though they are a little small you might want to consider sizing up. But if you feel comfortable enough in them, a med will work.

I hope this is helpful.

If you have anymore questions, please contact me anytime. I'm happy to help.

I noticed the sizing chart on these shorts seemed a bit confusing so I did a little research and found this on FOX's website. The size and the actual measurement of the wait on each size.

MEN'S WAIST
With a tape measure, hold it level and measure the circumference at the waist's natural bend.

28: 27-29

30: 29-31

32: 31-33

34: 31-33

36: 35-37

38: 37-39

40: 39-41

Hey there! Thanks for visiting the site, I'd love to help you with you fitting questions.

I'm very familiar with Santa Cruz's sizing.

The stand-over on the Furtado is 28.0" according to their site.

With the Intense Hard Eddie: With some general math, 25.8"

http://www.competitivecyclist.com/intense-cycles-hard-eddie-expert-complete-bike-2014?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6aGFyZCBlZGRpZToxOjE6aGFyZCBlZGRpZQ&skid=INC000C-NAK-S

However, there are more technical questions I can ask to get a better idea of you and your sizing, if you would like to speak about options. You can reach me at 801-736-6396 ext 4368

Keri in the bike department!

Questions to consider:

? What size/model bike are you currently riding?
? Are you comfortable with your current fit?
? What is your saddle height? This measurement is taken from the center of the bottom bracket, along the seat tube, to the top of the saddle.
? What is your stem length?

Either way, I hope this is helpful to you to get you onto the dirt!

Noticed we didn't have a sizing chart up, just yet, for the rain cap. Did some research.

Over all, the bike was peppy and fun. I see a very strong place for it on the trails. I'm not confused by it all and it very much stands it's ground as a bike tailored specifically to suit women’s needs with out compromising on 'big boy' standards. It's refreshing to see a bike out there that is ready for the ladies with out the ye ol' "Shrink it and Pink it" ideals. Way to go Juliana.

So, like, 27.5 is going to go everywhere because it makes a ton of sense. It's appealing to me, who has a more playful style when riding, not necessarily the most aggressive lady out there, but I certainly ride hard. I love climbing just as much as I love getting shuttled and flying down a Mountain. I'm about 5.4/5.5 and I've never really had an issue with my 29ers, but after getting on the Juliana, I can see why this wheel size would appeal to smaller riders. This is not just a fashion trend. It's here to stay and I'm happy that Santa Cruz is jumping on such a great opportunity to expand for a more versatile riding experience.
In my humble opinion, 3x10 has lots of overlap. 2x10 should have enough gears to get you where you wanna go. But hey, it's kind of a personal preference. I would go 2x10 because it's simple. With that said, I wasn't upset to be riding a good ol' 3/10 set up again. It didn't interrupt my ride but we all know what we want and I prefer otherwise.I found the Fox 32 Float FIT CTD to be very user friendly. I was able to play with it accordingly and without fumble. The 130 mm fork and the 125 mm rear was just enough for me and seemed to make sense to those I'd imagined to be the riders of the Juliana.
Sizing: The bike?s handlebar reach felt really uncomfortable for me and the thin handlebars were awkward. I have pretty small hands and even though they were definitely easier to grip, my hands kept falling asleep. I've come to the conclusion that I need something more ergonomically correct for me and these are not the route I'd go. I was on a small (which I usually ride) and I think I rushed the process a bit to get on her. In retrospect, I should have been on a medium (which is never). It felt a little undersized and perhaps that's because I am 99.9% always on a unisex/male specific bike.
