Juliana Bicycles

When you just want one, this is the one.

The go-to model for all-round riders, the Furtado proves that what goes up (well) can come down (equally well), too.

The balance of 130mm VPP travel and a 66.5° head tube angle delivers a package that’s nimble on tight technical stuff yet perfectly poised on tricky descents too.

The upper-link driven VPP design is engineered to be ultra-responsive. A firm initial stroke creates tight pedaling performance straight off the bat, while Juliana’s lighter shock tune remains supple enough to handle small bumps and keep things feeling playful. Deeper into the travel the progressive shock rate delivers a subtle bottom-out resistance that makes it feel like there’s more travel than there actually is.

The Furtado is suitable for almost all types of riders and trails. It has a unique personality that ranges from feisty dance partner on hot laps to trusty companion on more far flung adventures. We spec 2.6-inch tires on Reserve 37 rims because we feel it’s the sweet spot between traction and finesse, but there’s still enough clearance for up to 2.8-inch tires for those who want more grip.

Some people want a garage full of bikes for every occasion. Others want just one that’s good for any occasion. The Furtado is that bike.

Tech Support

Can I mount a chainguide to my bike?

Yes, this bike is equipped with ISCG-05 tabs for easy chainguide mounting. Most chainguides on the market that are made for this standard should work.

Can I put a front derailleur on?

No, this bike is not compatible with front derailleurs.  

I want to put the shock from my old bike on there, can I do that?

We always recommend the stock shock, as we've spent a lot of time tuning for each particular frame. But if you must, these are the specifics you need to keep in mind:
- 210x50 Metric shock
- 30x8mm rear hardware (bearing compatible)
- 20x8 front hardware

Is this bike coil shock compatible?

A coil shock will fit in the Furtado, but we generally recommend an air shock as they are more progressive and tuneable.

The geometry chart shows two settings- how do I adjust that?

There's a "flip chip" on the link where the shock mounts. Just remove the lower shock bolt and flip the chips to the setting you desire

What kind of rear brake mount does it use?

This bike uses a 180mm post mount. You cannot run a smaller rotor than that. If using 180mm rotor, your caliper will bolt straight to the mount. For 200 or 203 rotors you will need a 20mm or 23mm Post Mount adapter

What's the difference between the "Plus" version and the "regular" version?

The Furtado will fit up to 27.5x2.8" tires, but we sell it in two configurations:
"Normal" configuration comes with 2.3" tires on 27mm rims. This setup will offer the most precise handling, and is your best bet if you prioritize responsiveness and low rolling resistance. The rims will work well with tires up to 2.5" wide.
"Plus" configuration comes with 2.6" tires front and rear, on 35-37mm rims (depending on kit). These tires offer a good combination of grip/cushion without giving up too much in the way of support and precision. The rims will also work excellently with 2.8" tires if you're after the true rock-crawling Plus experience.  

Won't my BB be too high if I put 2.8" tires on my bike?

Thanks to the flip-chip on the link, you can adjust the bb height to account for the different tire diameters. You can achieve the same bb height with the plus configuration as you do with the standard one.
