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 well, we decided to offer those, with some common options available to personalize the bike more, in our store.  We hope this will help you get a feel for how the pricing works out, and also just for the way we recommend building our bikes if decide to just get a frameset!

For now, let’s see some bikes!

 

Chad’s 25″ Jones Plus 148 TA is a great example of one of Jeff’s favorite builds: Full Shimano XT 2×11, XT Hydraulic brakes, with Maxxis Chronicle tires.

This 23″ Spaceframe Plus 148 TA is another great example of our XT build with slight modifications, which include the bar tape on the rear crossbar and front loop, and the Bontrager Chupacabra tires.

Frank was one of the first to get the new Gray Plus 148 TA. The build is Shimano XT 2×11 with Avid BB7 cable-actuated brakes, Thomson Dropper Post, and WTB Ranger tires.

Jo’s Plus 148 TA is built with a Shimano 2×11 Drivetrain, TRP Spyke cable-actuated brakes, and Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR 29×3″ tires for some serious traction!

After Jo got his bike, he emailed us saying, “I absolutely love it! It’s absolutely everything Jeff said it is.  Fantastic handling!”

We hear this sort of thing a lot, and it’s nice to know that there are so many happy riders out there on their Jones Bikes!

 

Peter’s bike is built for all-terrain touring in all conditions, and it’s a special rig: Shimano 2×11 drivetrain, Paul Klamper cable-actuated brakes, Jones C-Rims, Schmidt SON dynamo hub, Edelux light, and Old Man Mountain Pioneer rack are just some of the highlights. The Vee Tire Bulldozer 29×3.25″ tires will keep him rolling over in any terrain too!

Tom and Amanda’s Plus 148 TA builds take the Shimano XT 2×11 drivetrain with XT hydraulic brakes and add a Schmidt SON dynamo hub with an Edelux light to make bikes that are ready for long adventures!

Allen’s Build combines a steel Plus 148 TA and ti Truss fork with a Shimano XT 2×11 Drivetrain, XT hydraulic brakes, Jones C-Rims, and carbon Loop H-Bars to make a lightweight and versatile (not to mention beautiful!) bike.

Molly’s build is a great example of a nearly stock 23″ Spaceframe Plus 148 TA with a Shimano XT 2×11 drivetrain, XT hydraulic brakes: the one change from the fully stock build is a move to Maxxis Chronicle tires.

Nathan’s Jones 29 ti Spaceframe is going to be a really fun bike: Shimano XT 1×11 with XT hydraulic brakes, Jones C-Rims, Carbon Loop H-Bar, and Maxxis Ardent 29×2.4″ tires makes this bike light, durable, and playful for all sorts of riding!
