When not at the helm of my computer at Jones Bikes, I'm off trying to find the map's bits of relative darkness.

Bikes on the trail

 

We often post studio photos of the bikes we build before they go out to their new owners, but it goes without saying that those bikes are going out to be ridden, so we wanted to post a few photos that those riders have sent to us!  With each bike that we build up […]

The first two Jones Plus SWB bikes are built, and we have photos!

Just in time for Interbike, we got one of the new Jones Spaceframe Plus SWB and one of the Jones Diamond frame Plus SWB bikes built!  The new blue color looks even better in person, and Jeff is really happy with how these framesets turned out.  The bikes represent a couple of the wide […]

Introducing the SG 2.5 Aluminum Loop H-Bar

Jeff hears from a lot of riders who need to get their handlebars higher in order to be comfortable on their bikes, and while his framesets make that easy, many riders are installing H-Bars on other brands of bikes with low headtubes that make it very difficult to get the handlebars high-enough.  For them, […]

The Jones Plus SWB is Coming!

For many years, Jeff had one geometry—in many frame design configurations—which has come to be known as the Jones 29 geometry (check out this article for further reading).  Based around a short wheelbase design, rigid-specific design, and the new (when it was introduced) 29 x 2.4″ tires, it’s a geometry that even over a […]

Builds that just left the stand

As usual, more builds means less time to talk about them, but there have been a lot of great builds happening lately!  We’ve also been wanting to make purchasing a complete bike easier, and because we have a few builds that Jeff recommends most of the time because he knows that they work really […]

Aquaholic gets a new Jones!

Steve was one of Jeff’s early customers, and he recently bought a titanium Jones Plus 148 rolling chassis.  He sent us some photos of his rides on the new bike, and seeing them made Jeff remember the fairly encyclopedic MTBR thread that Steve kept up about his first Jones experience.  If you’re not familiar with […]

Introducing the Jones SG Loop H-Bar!

Over the years, we’ve heard from riders that they would like a less-expensive way to get the comfort and utility of the Jones Loop H-Bar. Now that wish has been answered with the new Jones SG Loop H-Bar!

The new Jones SG Loop H-Bar uses the same great design as our standard Loop H-Bar, but […]

Jones Bikes in Singletrack Magazine

Singletrack Magazine, recently published a review of the Jones Plus (issue #111), so get yourself a copy and check it out!

Seeing how reviewers all over the world respond to the Jones Plus is always intriguing for us, and this review is no exception.  It’s a fun read, and we’d recommend looking for it!

The one thing […]

A new production run, a new color….

We’re running low on the Steel Jones Plus 148 TA framesets, so we have another production run in the works.  Each time we do a new production run, we choose a new color (in addition to black), and now we have a sample of the one that’s coming up next!  Our production runs are […]

The Jones Truss fork Packs are here!

 

Over the years, Jeff has had various packs made to fit the Truss Fork’s rack-like structure, and for the last few of those years, he’s been working toward a new design.  For some background, check out this blog post about an early experiment with using the Truss Fork as a rack, this blog post […]
