Sketches and ideas about bicycles

Jones in the media

It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything, and a lot’s been happening in that time!  We’ve gotten the new Jones Plus 148 TA frames in steel, ti, and the new 23″ Spaceframe Plus, all of which have been getting built into complete bikes headed out to all corners of the globe (we’ll be […]

New Spaceframe Video

In answering questions from riders who are interested in understanding what our bikes are about, we get a lot of questions about the Spaceframe design.  Many assume that Jeff wanted to make a bike that would stand out by looking different (which, it’s true, the Jones Spaceframe design does).  But that wasn’t the goal […]

Jones Plus Road: Notes from outside

Since I started riding the Jones Plus, it’s become the only bike I ride for pretty much everything; but that didn’t happen overnight.  At first, I thought of it as a mountain bike that was also good for gravel roads, but which probably wouldn’t be what I would choose for rides that involved more […]

Jones Build and Talk Video

We’ve just released a new Jones Bikes video!   The third in a series of videos that were made from a week of riding and interviews filmed last fall, this installment follows Jeff as he builds a complete Jones Plus bicycle and talks about how his history with bikes led him to his unique […]

New Jones Bikes Video

A preview of the new Jones video

We’ll be releasing our new video on Monday, November 23rd!  Check it out!

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 […]

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.

 

Testing times

OK, we often get messages from customers. They seem to like what I’m doing. How I see cycling. And we get reviews too, sometimes from large established publications and sometimes from smaller outfits. I’ve collected a few here that I’ve seen recently. Tests and mentions and customer comments…

Firstly a mention on Dirty Pages. If […]

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 […]
