Unconventional, unlimited, unbelievable -- most of our favorite words begin with that same prefix, so its no surprise that we prefer our bikes to captivate the same unstoppable feeling. We want bikes that can ride hard, fast, and with unbeatable lively and playful characteristics for soaring up steep climbs, and rolling over tire-gobbling rock gardens with powerful wagon wheels. And so it's probably not surprising that we're attracted to Juliana's new unorthodox enduro sled, the Maverick Carbon R Mountain Bike. This uncustomary steed is built to power though the rubble with 140mm of VPP suspension tuned to eat up any obstacles that sit in your way. It's built with slacked out geometry that charges head first into gravity trails, and transitions into a beast on the climbs with the flip of a chip, staying on the back wheel of lightweight cross country bikes up punchy switchbacks, and giving the longer enduro beats a run for their money when you point things downhill. We know we're not alone when we say our riding temperament changes from day to day, and we don't think our bike should limit that, which is why we're thankful that Juliana implements an integrated flip-chip to change the Maverick's geometry from one ride to another. All you need to do is grab a hex-wrench and in a flash you can slacken the head tube, and drop the bottom bracket for an extra planted feel when you're craving some lift-access rowdiness that challenges the sum of the bike's numbers. With the flip chip in the lower position, the head tube is stretched out to a long-and-low 65. 2-degrees (compared to 65. 5 in high), and bottom bracket height lowers 4-millimeters to keep you lower to the ground and more stable when gravity takes over. In practice, this enables the Maverick to switch from a climb-conquering trail queen to an all-out enduro sled with the turn of a wrench. It's worth noting that the bike ships in the low setting, and will be ready to eat up steep, challenging terrain right out o...

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.
