Joplin 2.1 AL Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Juliana
Not content to be a one-trick pony, the Juliana Joplin 2. 1 AL Mountain Bike Frame seamlessly transitions from grueling cross-country races to trail rides where sweeping berms, rock rolls, and elevated bridges pose a challenge to your skills. Although it could be categorized as a fast-rolling XC machine in 29er form, the Joplin 2. 0 doesn't like to be pigeonholed, defying its short-travel genre with progressive trail geometry, plus the ability to switch between 29-inch and 27. 5+ wheels with its flip-chip linkage. This particular frame has aluminum construction for reliable strength without the higher price of its carbon brethren. Taking design cues from Santa Cruz's iconic Tallboy, the Joplin 2. 1 blurs the line between razor-sharp XC scalpel and spirited trail bike with its 110-millimeters of VPP suspension paired with Juliana's recommendation for running either a 120 or 130-millimeter fork (for 29ers or 27. 5+). This combination of shorter travel out back with extra plushness out front makes it pedal with resounding efficiency, but with a bit more margin for error when you're dropping into rocky descents and sending side-hits along the trail. Where the Joplin differs from the Tallboy lies within its female-specific shock tune. By tuning the Fox Float Performance DPS shock for lighter riders, it feels more active tracking over speed-sapping rocks and roots. The VPP suspension gets 10-millimeters of extra travel over the previous Joplin 1. 0, aligning the newest Joplin with the current crop of do-it-all trail rigs with approximately 4. 5-inches of travel. Not only is the travel a bit more substantial at 4. 5 inches/110 millimeters, but the revised VPP platform makes it perform better, so you can squeeze every last drop of bump-compliance out of the suspension. Juliana engineered it to be more supple off-the-top, meaning you'll gain better traction when you're riding over bumpy rock and root sections. The shock's ramp-up arc remains more consistent until the en...
