Although already reputable with its multi-award winning performance, the women mountain bike frame named Juliana from Santa Cruz Bicycles returns for 2012 with even more updates. To enhance the stiffness of the frame, its oversized main pivot bearing set is made into a through-axle main pivot.
Instead of painting a kid?s bike with female colors, Santa Cruz designed Juliana as a frame that is women-specific and at the same time tough enough to tackle the trail. The frame features 100mm travel, replaceable derailleur hanger, and a tire clearance with up to 2.35in.
As compared to its previous models, the 2012 Santa Cruz Juliana Mountain Bike Frame is made even stiffer and leaner. Indeed, the Juliana is constructed with the serious women trail riders in mind. For a medium size, the frame weighs in at 2.36kg.
