Anka Martin took the women's win at the 2013 Trans Provence aboard her custom Juliana Furtado. Stock Furtados run 125mm rear travel, but Anka's features 150mm rear travel. She kept the bike running strong and in one piece for 6 days of brutal racing through the south of France.

    Congrats Anka! Some nice street cred for the new Juliana brand too!

    thinkdrastic, i don't reckon you're far wrong there...

    Very nice. I'm intrigued as to where that extra 25mm travel comes from though. I imagine a longer shock and fork would compromise the design too much. So is this a development prototype, or perhaps a Bronson in disguise?

    I'd guess that it comes stock with a 200x50mm shock, and she's running a 200x57mm to increase the travel at the same eye to eye. I've seen people do that on their Tallboy LT's.

    It's a Bronson painted to be a Juliana. The Furtado is the same frame as the Solo, you should not change the shock to get more travel, never a good idea.
