When the Stigmata was resurrected in 2015, we fused a number MTB standards and design features to create our spin on the modern CX bike. Something must have clicked,because within months of launch it raced to victory at the legendary Three Peaks, and has continued to contend at elite cyclocross races around the world.

Nowadays, the internally routed disc brakes, generous tire clearance and thru-axles approach that made the Stigmata famous have become more of a norm, so we took a fresh look at which standards the riders of tomorrow wanted access to today.

The New New

The significantly revised carbon layup borrows knowledge gained from not just the Highball, but also Danny MacAskill’s trials bike, to produce a ride so law-abiding you’d think HR had sent it on a compliance training course. Fender mounts add a bit of CYA, and we added three bottle cage mounts so you can carry a bottle and a frame bag at the same time. Tire clearance is even better—up to a 45mm 700c or a 2.1” 650b trye

Geo Tweaks

We’ve reworked the 52/54cm frames so the Stigmata now comfortably suits riders from 5’3” and up. Different fork offsets—50mm for the 52-54cm sizes, and 45mm for the 56-61cm sizes—help ensure your little piggies don’t go to market on the front wheel.

Juliana Quincy

You’d be forgiven for thinking a bike with this much soul was named after a Grammy Award winning record producer. But you’d be wrong. This Gravel & Roll Hall of Fame nominee derives its name from a small gold rush town at the heart of our own little dirt road revolution.

You know the kind of roads we’re talking about. The ones you get lost and found on. The kind where you don’t know quite what kind of bike works best and forces a rethink of your whole darn setup.

Well don’t stress—Quincy’s on the mixing board and has got the balance just right. The full carbon frame and fork gives where you need it and takes a beating where you need it more. From tarmac to way-off-the-map, this is a robust bike that’s comfortable on or off-road all day long.

There’s plenty of opportunity to dial in your own personal EQ too. Quincy rocks big 700c or smaller 650b wheels, offering clearance to roll on wide tires on both. Pleasingly simple single-ring drivetrains come standard, but the chassis can be set up with even wider range if desired. Mounts for fenders and three water-bottle cages complete the versatility package.

Like all Julianas, this bike fits a broad range of rider heights and has a geometry that is designed for having fun. Thankfully, cleverly routed hydraulic disc brakes ensure you’re in safe hands throughout the process.

And like all Juliana bicycles, the Quincy is spec’d with kits we feel are best suited to potential owners. This includes the Ergon SR10 women’s saddle and bar widths matched to frame size for that multi-platinum feel of a tailored cockpit—where comfort’s Number 1, and control’s so polished it’s off the charts.
