Joplin 2.0 Carbon 27.5+ XE Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Juliana
Not strictly a XC bike, and not only a trail bike, the Juliana Joplin 2. 0 Carbon 27. 5+ XE Complete Mountain Bike follows in the footsteps (or tire marks) of its big brother, the Santa Cruz tallboy, and provides a ride that pedals like an XC racer and handles terrain like an all-mountain bike. Almost ideal for cyclists who spend most of their rides pedaling and primarily use the lift to access sidecountry networks, the Joplin 2. 0 goes everywhere, and benefits from a carbon frame, more spacious geometry, and an XE build kit, which features Shimano XT in all-mountain matrimony with Race Face finishing bits and a RockShox dropper. The biggest difference between the Joplin and the Tallboy is in the shock tune. The setup is custom for lighter riders since Juliana calculates that typical women cyclists are around 30lb lighter, on average, than men. No more having to send your shock to a shop to get a custom tune or using all of that VPP travel. If you're wanting extra traction and a more forgiving ride over roots and babyhead rocks, the 27. 5+ on this build is the way to go. If you're looking for quick acceleration and a nimble feel, good news, a wheel swap lets you run larger diameter 29er wheels and tires. A flip chip sits in the suspension link and can be positioned allowing the shock mount to move a few millimeters. Repositioning the shock attachment point and extending or reducing the fork length effectively accounts for the difference between 27. 5+ and 29-inch wheel/tire systems, keeping the geometry as static as possible across wheel sizes. Headtube and seatube angles as well as travel remains the same after wheels are swapped, chips are flipped, and forks adjusted. The 68-degree headtube angle strikes a perfect balance between downhill, lean back steep confidence and cross-country agility. Since the flip chip allows that number to stay the same whether you're running a 29in wheels with a 120mm fork or 27. 5+ with 130mm, the bike will handle very similarly...
