Juliana Bicycles
MY19 Cerulean & MY19 Tan

An all-mountain Maverick and wickedly fun bike.

The Strega is a wickedly fun bike and a statement on how seriously we believe in the progression of women’s mountain biking.

With 170mm of VPP travel and a 65 degree head angle, there’s no equal when it comes to a female-focused trail bike that has one foot firmly in DH. The lower-link mounted shock provides a consistent feel throughout the stroke, and, combined with the gravity-fueled geometry, conjures up a ride that’s as spellbinding on the trail as it is in the park.

However, don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a one trick pony. The Strega has been designed to pedal too, and will surprise you in its ability to climb to the start of your favorite descents.

Juliana’s trademark attention to detail can be found all over the Strega: suspension tuned appropriately for the anticipated rider, crazy low standover heights, and frame size-specific dropper posts. That’s because Juliana is founded upon a drive to meet the demands of the most committed female outdoor athletes. We’re not afraid to see where that leads us, and the Strega embodies that attitude.

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.

I see you offer some models with a choice of coil shock or air shock- which should I get?

There is a difference in feel between the two, but neither is better than the other- just different. The air shock is more progressive than the coil, which allows for a slightly softer setup without worrying about bottoming-out. This will generally offer a smoother ride, but one that can still be ridden very aggressively and not struggle.

The coil has a slightly more linear feel/ less bottom-out resistance, which encourages a firmer overall setup. This offers the maximum mid-stroke support for berms/park riding/ pushing into turns. If you like a more responsive/firmer feel, you will probably prefer the coil. If you set the air shock up to offer a similar feel in the mid-stroke, you may struggle to achieve full travel. These aren't huge differences, but they are enough that we wanted to offer both. Obviously, the air shock offers the advantages of being lighter and easier to tune, so this will be the right choice for the majority of riders.

We know metric-sized springs are a bit hard to come by at the moment, so if you're looking to swap out the spring on your coil shock, a spring sized for an 8.2x2.5 shock will work on the 230x60 shock spec'd on the Strega.

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 size fork is the Strega designed for?

We designed it around a 170mm fork, and this will be ideal for the balance of the bike. A 180mm fork would work as well, if you're looking for an even more gravity-oriented bike.

What size seatpost does the this bike use?

31.6mm. We spec/recommend the Reverb without the Connectamajig to maximize the amount of seatpost insertion available.
