Take a Look at the Juliana Furtado and Roubion!

With so many choices of bikes you can choose to purchase, not all of them are made to fit every rider out there. Some bikes may be too progressive, some too long, some too short, etc. When a bike comes from the factory, it may not be totally suitable for the rider which leads to more money coming out of pocket to help tailor a more fitting ride. Luckily, there are brands out there who know this is a problem so they make adjustments from the factory to help better fit their customer base. One of these brands is Juliana Bicycles.

Carbon vs Aluminum MTB Handlebars

Carbon vs Aluminum MTB Handlebars

The age old debate in cycling... carbon vs. aluminum. When it comes to mountain bike material, people seem to feel extremely opinionated on both sides of the fence. There are so many preconceived notions, especially when it comes to carbon so we thought it would be wise to spend a little time breaking down some of the cons and pros when it comes to picking your handlebar material. Just about all of us here at Jenson have ridden both types and see the benefits and downfalls of both types, but in the end, does it actually even matter? Join Mark and Alex as they debate carbon vs. aluminum handlebars and which material is better!
