    Juliana 2010 & SL / Heckler

    First look: 2010 Santa Cruz Juliana http://www.bikeradar.com/news/articl...-juliana-23149

    "We changed the pivot axles to use our collet pivot axles (used on all the new VPP frames), instead of using pinch bolts to hold the pivot axle in place," Graney added. "They still use angular contact bearings, 15mm pivot axles, and have aluminium labyrinth seal covers. Fewer parts, stiffer system." The head tube angle on the Juliana was slackened by one degree, influenced by the updated Blur XC. "We loved the slackness of the Blur XC so much we made a running change to these models," Graney explained. "It's okay to run 120mm forks on the Juliana, both structurally and handling wise, making it more of an all-arounder/enduro racing type bike than just a pure 100mm XC racing bike. "In fact, we like it so much with the longer fork that all of our complete bike packages (we also offer a la carte part picking options to build your own) come with 120mm forks," he added. "Shock options now include the Fox RP23 Boost Valve." "According to Joe Graney, engineering director at Santa Cruz Bicycles, the new Superlight, Juliana and Heckler frames got some frame upgrades."

    The 2010 Santa Cruz Juliana aluminium 100mm travel full-suspension cross-country racer has received a subtle makeover -- slackened head tube angle, new pivot axles, new top and down tubes -- while staying true to the original design.

    So do people think the Sl and Heckler will follow the same path? Does that mean no Carbon option for the frame? If the Aluminium version got a design update?
