Built with some big updates that boost it into the modern world, the Juliana Joplin Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike has Boost rear spacing, and a new geometry, to push its boundaries from smooth and rolling singletrack to all-mountain trail riding. This is in part thanks to a slacker head tube that tracks with control through rocky sections, and a stiffer rear end that allows for flickable maneuverability. And not to mention 110mm of travel, allowing you to tackle terrain from the chunky rock gardens to long climbs loaded with tight switchbacks on this more-capable-than-ever XC and trail machine.

Suspension also happens to be where we find the key difference between the Joplin and the Tallboy--the shock tune. Juliana's market research finds that the typical women cyclist weighs in about 30lb lighter than men, and the shock was adjusted so that we can enjoy the same plush benefits of VPP as the guys. This model features a FOX Float Performance DPS shock, with a...

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.
