While full suspension bikes provide a point and shoot squish factor to get over trail obstacles, some of us still dream of the precision, skill, and just downright fun of hardtail adventures. Whether you're bikepacking out to your favorite camping spot or ripping technical single track, the 2016 Juliana Nevis Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike adds a big dose of smiles to any ride. For 2016, Juliana analyzed rider feedback and put the Nevis frame on an intense winter program. This year's version comes out dressed in carbon fiber with a slightly longer cockpit than previous version to improve handling and comfort out on the trail.

A tapered head tube along with a rear thru axle and a beefy, 73mm threaded bottom bracket give this frame a stiff, responsive ride while the 27. 2mm seatpost provides just the right amount of compliance for long days in the saddle. As an added bonus, internal cable routing makes for clean lines and a hassle free setup. The Nevis Carbon S build starts off w...
