Tweedlove: Spotted – Juliana Roubion and Bos Dizzy Fork

There’s a new Juliana in town; the Roubion is based on the Santa Cruz Bronson and is aimed at women who like to “schralp the gnar”.

Named after a french town on a stage of the Trans Provence race, the bike is a 150mm/150mm Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) 650b All Mountain bike that’s been ridden by Anka Martin in the Enduro World Series as part of its development.

The fork uses a light 15mm thru axle design which sits in a sleeve in the dropout to help maintain stiffness. Compression damping is available via the nice big red knob on top of the right hand leg and offers three settings: soft, medium and hard.
