Part endurance racer, part rowdy trail bike, the Juliana Joplin is ridiculously fun. The original model 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 aluminum frame, efficient VPP rear suspension, and 29-inch wheel option, 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. The new Joplin also gives you the option of running either 29er or 27.5+ wheels. If you're looking for quick acceleration and a nimble feel, go 29er. If you want extra traction and a more forgiving ride over roots and rocks, go 27.5+. 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.
