When it comes to mountain biking, most of the time you have to put in the work in order to reap the rewards of a fun descent. So if you're going to have just one full suspension rig, having one that's equally capable climbing up the mountain as it is ripping down is a lot more fun that lugging around a hefty enduro sled. Which brings us to the Juliana Furtado 27. 5 R Complete Mountain Bike--a bike that truly excels on the whole mountain. It's Juliana's go-to model for all-round riders, and has been completely redesigned for the current model year. The new frame is stiffer, has extra clearance for up to 27. 5 x 2. 8in tires, and has a flip-chip in the linkage that lets you adjust the geometry to accommodate different tire sizes and terrain styles. The geometry has been made longer and slacker for better stability on the downhills, with a steeper seat tube angle to balance things out on the climbs. The VPP suspension platform has new links with a reconfigured suspension curve that serve to improve small bump compliance and mid-stroke support without sacrificing bottoming resistance. The result is a versatile trail bike that's nimble on tight technical stuff, but perfectly poised for tricky descents too.The Furtado's headtube is now slacker than ever, relaxed to a 66. 5-degree head tube angle in its high setting and a more DH-friendly 66. 2-degree head tube angle in the lowest setting. The inclusion of the flip-chip allows for this subtle change giving you the ability to tune the bike's geometry for different terrain and riding styles. Looking to hit the lifts or shuttle and let gravity assist your day's riding' Go low. Planning on knocking out that 6-hour pedal fest deep into the woods you and your buddies have planned out for a bit' Go high, and you'll be treated with a bike that pedals well and doesn't flinch in the face of technical trail problems on steep, rowdy terrain.As noted above, the flip-chip not only allows you to ride with a couple of geo options, it ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
