I Spy : 2010 Santa Cruz Juliana

ArleighLatest4 Comments

Yesterday I spotted on Bike Radar the new 2010 Santa Cruz Juliana.   If I remember right, I believe that the Juliana was one of the first pioneer women’s full suspension mountain bikes.

Santa Cruz Juliana

The main changes are smaller, not quite things to make me run out and order a new full suspension bike but it does let us know that Santa Cruz Bikes is thinking of women while their quest to become an elite “boutique” mountain bike company.  Another neat thing is the Juliana is completely customizable so you can pick colors, suspension bits and parts to your liking.   Their turn around on certain colors is slower than others but color might be worth your wait.

How many of you mountain bike?  What do you own and why did you pick it?

  1. I ride a 2000 Kona Pahoehoe…at the time I wanted an aluminum hardtail and I’ve always loved Kona.

    Also, a nice aside,the Juliana is named for Juliana (Juli) Furtado who dominated women’s MTB Cross Country in the early 90’s. At the height of her success, she was diagnosed with Lupus and was forced to quit racing. She has always been a hero of mine.

  2. I ride a Gary Fisher Tassajara (disc)…

    I bought it because I was just getting into mt biking, the boyfriend had a Fisher (which I had borrowed, and liked), and the price was right (on sale for $800 or something) I bought it in 2005 or so…

    I’m thinking of getting a full suspension bike, and though I’ve never felt the need for a women’s specific frame (my road bike is also a men’s frame), I might give it a try this time. This Juliana is beautiful….

  3. Titus Racer X. Couldn’t find a Juliana when I was looking for a fs mtn bike.

    Although the Racer X isn’t marketed as women specific it’s a perfect fit for me, a 5’1″ rider.
