Much like its namesake defining genres of rock and roll, the Juliana Joplin R Complete Mountain Bike challenges preconceived notions of what it means to be a 29er. Unlike the wagon-wheeled machines of the past that were only at home on smooth and speedy cross-country trails, the newest iteration of the Joplin bridges the gap from fast paced rocks and rollers to the undulating berms and wild trails that rock you down to their roots. The latest Joplin is more aggressive, leading into terrain with a slacker head tube angle, plus improved tracking of Boost axles, and this iteration is built with a kit that encourages aggression, but doesn't break the bank. SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain combines the Eagle line's ultimate bailout gear to the workhorse, fear-no-trail-furniture functionality of NX.

The Virtual Pivot Point travel has also taken a turn for the crunchier, gaining an additional 10mm, which aligns the Joplin perfectly with the emerging crop of 4. 5in, do-it-all 29ers.

It's inspired by the enduro-minded Nomad, and the result is that the links stay out of the way, which lets the Joplin accommodate a piggyback shock's external can without giving up the bottle cage. The repositioned links also make for more ground clearance, lower standover, and an additional boost in stiffness to the already stiff Boost back end. Boost spacing, a slacker profile, enduro-inspired suspension links, and the protean flip chip are some of the modern features that cap off its developmental arc, following that of the Tallboy. The key difference between the Joplin and the Tallboy is in the shock tune, with the former lightening up a bit for lighter riders. Juliana calculates that typical women cyclists 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.
