Quincy Carbon CC Frameset
We'll be the first to admit that we never grew out of our Wild West phase. When we were kids, we dreamed of the open frontier, the Yukon Gold Rush, and exploring deep into the mountains, prospecting for that one gold vein that we would sink our pick axe into. While we've come to terms with life on a different kind of steed than what explorers of the west rode, that adventurous spirit lives on, and Juliana's Quincy Carbon CC Frameset helps keep it alive, with its clean gold pin stripes that remind us of that gold vein still waiting for us to find it underneath a ghost town, and deep, iridescent blue that's akin to late night camp outs on the frontier, long before light pollution hid the Milky Way. And while we'd love to go on about the aesthetics, looks are far from everything on this capable steed. Juliana crafts the Quincy to take on adventures far off the beaten path, so you can go find your ghost town, with its crumbling facades of general stores and saloons, atop a capable bike that's built to hold up to the jarring terrain that we find well beyond the tarmac, and with the ability to set up the Quincy as either a 700c or 650b ride, you can get there with as much speed and comfort as your heart desires.
Juliana builds the Quincy frameset with plenty of fine-tuning opportunity, offering the space you need to run either 700c or 650b wheels, and clearance to run lofty tires on either application. It features relatively slack geometry for a fully-rigid steed, with a 69.5-degree head tube angle (size 49), providing you with a longer wheelbase for stability on uneven terrain and poorly graded gravel. But don't worry, that longer wheelbase won't leave you feeling too stretched out and sluggish, as the slacker head tube is paired up with a neatly perched, steep 74.5-degree seat tube (size 49), allowing you to stay at the center of your cockpit and ready for the attack, should you decide to toe the line at a gravel race, or hit the sand-pits for CX season.
Pleasingly simple, the Quincy foregoes pesky front-derailleurs for a clean and tidy one-by application. This makes for less maintenance, and fewer issues when you're a hundred miles off of the beaten path and far from cell service — however the chassis can be set up with a clamp-on front derailleur if more gears is what you're after. Mounts for a fender in the back add another hit of versatility to this steed, so you can keep yourself covered from mud and wheel spray in the event of a sudden downpour on your route. Three bottle cages offer plenty of mounts for life-giving liquid, so those long rides aren't paired up with a wicked case of dehydration.
Juliana implements its CC level carbon fiber on this particular model, providing an immaculate layup that holds up to just about any terrain you throw its way, so you can venture down rolling singletrack and dirt roads alike. Carbon CC is Juliana's top-tier carbon, which shaves weight off of its heavier counterpart, while maintaining the torsional stiffness you need when you're hammering on the pedals. This is done by selecting the finest carbon fiber on the market, and pairing it with top-level resins, before setting to work on an incredible layup schedule that places carbon in critical zones to add stiffness and structural integrity, while trimming away any superfluous material to scale in as light as possible.
Like all Julianas, the Quincy features the same outstanding craftsmanship and geometry as its Santa Cruz brother, the Stigmata. This means that there is no compromise to the structural integrity, or implementation of the "shrink-it-and-pink-it" mentality. We ride just as hard as men, and deserve a steed that can handle it.
