Brief descriptions of Jones bikes that have gone to customers

Jan has her Jones

Another happy customer. Jan was great. And she has a fine van too.

She visited months ago to test ride Loop H-Bars to replace the drop bars on her bike that were giving her hand problems. She road several of my bikes with H-Bars and then ended up ordering a complete Jones bike. We went […]

Jones Plus – This is it.

JONES PLUS

So everything is in one place this post repeats the earlier Plus post – read it again or scroll – thanks.

I did not design this bike based on market research, a reaction to what other people were making, or because people were suggesting I make ‘this’ bike or ‘that’ bike – their idea […]

Titanium Spaceframe 2014

This is, currently, as good as it gets. The titanium Spaceframe and Truss fork deliver the rigid bicycle that is anything but. Laterally stiff to deliver the power with a vertical compliance that softens the ride? Yes, but this is only the icing on the cake. The Jones geometry ensures the best handling bike […]

City Stealth

This is a titanium Diamond frame / Truss fork Jones powdercoated black – the Stealth City Bike. The owner, Gideon, wanted it as inconspicuous as we could manage. Not that easy when we’ve a fat front tire and some quite distinctive Jones elements but it’s better than naked Ti and a big decal on […]

Wheels

I custom build all the wheels for the bikes and rolling chassis that we sell. I built my first wheels in 1985 and I still love it. I spend too much time doing it. I have a method and I get the tension very even and the wheel true and round. I seat the […]

The Long Ranger

I built this bike in 2009. It’s made from 4130 chromoly. It came about from riding the tandem home alone from the school after dropping off the kids and from riding an old heavy Chinese ‘workhorse’ bike I’ve had for an age – both are ‘long’ bikes and both very stable. The Long Ranger […]

Bob’s bike

Bob just built up and rode his bike and sent us a picture and a few words:
“Took my time putting the bike together this week. So far only 1000% satisfied, but I’m sure that will go up! The truss was a little daunting, but went together very easy. Right now I have 10mm stack […]

Jones as a City and Touring Bike

This bike was ridden and reviewed by Patrick O’Grady for Adventure Cyclist magazine.

I designed/developed/evolved the geometry of this bike out on the tight single track trails in the woods and the dirt and gravel mountain roads near my shop here in Oregon. It is a “mountain bike” but is also an All Terrain Bike […]
