New Jones H-Grips are here! Jones Loophole pack available for pre-order!

We now have the first of the new Jones H-Grips, and wanted to show some photos of them with their new bar plugs, as well as the new Jones Loophole Pack, made for us by Revelate Designs.

As I mentioned in the last previous post, the new grips are made of EVA foam, so they’re […]

Our new products at Interbike

Our Interbike post needed to be broken into two parts because the drive and the show are such stories in themselves, but we also want to show you what we’re working on, and what we brought to Interbike.  Jeff has been hard at work on his quest to make bicycles that will help everyone […]

A ride in the woods

Last week, Jeff and I (Brendon) got out for a ride in the woods here in Southern Oregon.

 

We wanted to go out and ride two very different Jones bikes, and see how they handled on the same terrain: I rode the new thru-axle titanium Spaceframe, and Jeff rode the new brown Plus bike.

Coming from […]

Introductions and a ride on the Plus….

First, for introductions: my name is Brendon, and since I started working at Jones Bikes, I’ve been wearing many hats, so there’s a good chance that if you’ve ordered anything from us in the last months, I’ve had some role in it.  Mostly I build bikes and wheels, and work on the website; but […]

24″ Jones Plus framesets back in stock, in brown and black, along with new Jones/Revelate Plus frame packs!

The new 24″ Jones Plus framesets are here!  We’re excited to have 24″ Plus framesets available again, and this time they’re available in brown.  The color is inspired by the mix of pine needles, dirt, leaves, and twigs that make up the beautiful forest floor in the mountains of Southern Oregon, where we are […]

Jones in Outside

A Jones Plus went to Outside magazine and their ‘First Look’ has been published.
It’s a good read (blush). Click the picture below to read it or you can use this link.

 

Thru-Axle Ti Spaceframe

This is (still) 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 […]

650b (27.5) wheels in a Jones 29 Spaceframe

Following on from my recent 29/29+/Fat-Front tire demonstration in the Jones Plus frameset, here is an image showing how a Jones 29 (in this instance a Steel Spaceframe but it applies to all the Jones 29 frames) can accept 650b (27.5) tires. Click pic for the big version!

650B wheels (depending on tire choice) can […]

Plus – 29 – EBB adjustment benefits

The EBB on the Jones Plus ensures that if a rider switches between 29+ tires and standard 29er tires they can adjust their position on the bike to keep the bottom bracket height and pedal clearance the same. They don’t have to ride lower with the smaller tires, with pedal strikes more likely. The […]
