Why We Like The Juliana Joplin Carbon R Mountain Bike
Have you ever gotten in over your head on a cross-country bike and decided to take it slow? We sure have, but the new Juliana Joplin Carbon R Mountain Bike is here to make that a thing of the past. Refined to be snappier, more capable, and hungrier than ever for epic adventures. Climbing is an enlightening experience with 120mm of responsive VPP rear suspension, while the 65.5-degree head tube angle and 130mm RockShox Pike fork give us the confidence to tackle new rock rolls and drops. The new Glovebox on the downtube provides storage for all of our trail essentials plus some snacks too!
The Juliana Joplin Carbon R Mountain Bike pairs the lightweight Juliana Carbon C layup with a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain for reliable performance that won’t break the bank. The SRAM NX Eagle derailleur and cassette offer an excellent climbing range, especially when paired with the 32-tooth SRAM Stylo 6K crankset. A DUB bottom bracket provides exceptional stiffness so that there are no worries when we really crank on those pedals during the mid-week XC race we decided to enter at the last minute. The ultra-reliable Race Face AR Offset 30 wheelset rounds out this build providing an exceptional ride feel season after season. The new Juliana Joplin Carbon R Mountain Bike is a genre-blending animal worthy of any XC ride or trail mission.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
