I looked at them but ended up putting $ down on a Santa Cruz Al 5010 (27.5) instead yesterday. Unlike the same-framed Juliana, the 5010's come with a bunch of build choices instead of one (which I was not that crazy about). The LBS said they might be able to land a Juliana Furtado frame, but it's the same geometry anyhow and I liked the 5010 color better too, plus the package deal on the build is a better value than building up from the frame. YMMV. It will be a few weeks before I can actually ride it, as the bike has to be ordered, and the trails are still closed due to the cr*ppy weather.
I have one of the older models Julianas (basically a small Santa Cruz Superlight rebadged) which I bought practically new second hand. Its a lovely light and capable bike and can hit most things I throw at it.
