Part endurance racer, part rowdy trail bike, the Juliana Joplin is ridiculously fun. The Joplin redefined what people thought a 29er could be. This latest version breaks the mold all over again. Conventional wisdom always held that a big-wheel bike like this was good for one thing, covering lots of ground quickly. Yes, the Joplin is a fine cross-country/endurance machine, with its light-yet-stiff frame and efficient VPP rear suspension, this bike can be an absolute race weapon, but the Joplin is more than that. The Joplin has always been, to reduce this thing to a single word, fun. The Joplin comes with a ground-up redesign that increases the bike's composure on descents, adds a bit more small-bump suppleness to the mix and improves its handling in tight turns. Completely up to date and fully-featured: Boost 148 rear spacing reduces frame flex and molded rubber frame protectors reduce rattles and keep your frame pristine. Durable, double-sealed pivots and a nearly bombproof frame, backed by a Lifetime Frame and Pivot Bearing Warranty, the Joplin is easy to build and maintain with no-hassle internal routing for derailleurs and dropper posts.
