Brief descriptions of Jones bikes that have gone to customers

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 […]

Another Bike

Joe got a Jones singlespeed bike a few months ago. His wife liked it so much and kept taking it for rides, now she is getting one too.

Now I’ll clean, tune and pack the bike. It’ll ship on Monday.

Eccentric Bottom Bracket (EBB)

The bottom bracket shell for the eccentric on all Jones frames has the center section machined away. This saves weight but the main reason for this is to support the EBB at the widest points. Since the EBB is supported at the widest points and not at the center, it will not rock from […]

Target / Practice

I had a good ride Sunday. I took out the new bike I built, the pre-production steel Diamond with unicrown frameset, that was at Interbike. A few specification details; all the spokes, front, rear, left and right are the same length and are equally tensioned. The hubs have different dimensions but the spoke length […]

Steel Spaceframe – Fat (and) or Loaded

These are two pictures I am using to explain a little of what is possible with my bikes, and it makes sense to offer them here, on the blog, for everyone. It’s a steel Spaceframe, with frame bags in the first instance, and a fat front tire in the second. Of course, you can […]
