Why We Like The Joplin D Mountain Bike
The Juliana Joplin is just as at home doing long XC rides as it is taking on raucous trails where roots, rock gardens, and ledge drops are all part of the recipe. With fast-rolling 29-inch wheels, the Joplin covers plenty of miles of trails quickly and efficiently. This frame is constructed from aluminum for durability and without the higher price of its carbon fiber sisters. Adding a Rock Shox Recon fork and SRAM's SX group builds up a capable bike that is ready for challenging trails at a friendly price tag.
Just like the Tallboy, the Joplin blends highly responsive XC handling with that of a go-anywhere, ride-anything trail bike with its 120-millimeters of VPP suspension paired with a 130-millimeter fork for the 29 wheels and tires. The shorter travel out back and extra squish up front lets the bike pedal with exceptional efficiency and offers a little more security when sending blind drops and twisting the throttle when the trail opens up. One area where the Joplin and Tallboy differ is in their shock, with the Joplin tuned for lighter riders. Instead of skipping over rocks and roots with damping suited for heavier riders, the suspension will be better able to absorb the hits and keep you in control.
The shock remains linear until the end of the stroke for a smooth, bottom-less feel, then ramps up, becoming more progressive resisting bottom-outs on drops to flat and high-speed jumps. The suspension kinematics help you use all 110 millimeters of travel leaving you with a plush bike that can handle trails typically reserved for bigger travel bikes. The 65-degree head tube angle allows for confident descending when the trail turns steep and rocky, as well as keeping the short 17-inch chainstays and low-slung bottom bracket at 13 inches for nimble carving and stable handling.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
