Joplin 2.0 27.5+ D Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Juliana
Not being pigeon-holed into one specific category, the Joplin 2. 0 27. 5+ D Complete Mountain Bike is just as happy doing endurance races as it is on rowdy trail rides where roots, rock gardens, and ledge drops are all part of the fun. In fast-rolling XC, 29er guise, the Joplin 2. 0 covers plenty of miles of trails quickly and efficiently. The 27. 5+ wheel option, that we have here, utilizes its flip-chip linkage and a change in fork travel to take the playful, progressive geometry and add high-volume tires which increase traction and comfort. This frame is constructed from aluminum for durability and without the higher price of its carbon fiber sisters. Adding a Rock Shox Recon fork and SRAM's NX group builds up a capable bike that is ready for challenging trails at a friendly price tag. The Joplin 2. 0 takes design cues from its big brother the Tallboy and blends highly responsive XC handling with that of a go-anywhere, ride anything trail bike with its 110-millimeters of VPP suspension paired with a 130-millimeter fork for the 27. 5+ wheels and tires. The shorter travel out back and extra squish up front lets the bike pedal with exceptional efficiency, and offer a little more security when hitting blind drops and twisting the throttle when the trail opens up. One area where the Joplin and Tallboy differs is in its female-specific shock tune. Juliana worked with FOX to develop a lighter shock tune on the Float Performance DPS shock for lighter riders. So instead of skipping over rocks and roots with damping suited for heavier riders, the suspension will be better able to absorb the hits and keep you in control. The VPP suspension gets 10-millimeters of extra travel over the previous Joplin, positioning the bike in the do-it-all category of rigs in the 4 to 5-inch range. Juliana didn't just increase the travel, it revised the VPP platform making it perform better in all conditions and making sure that you are able to utilize all of the 110mm of travel. Julian...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
