Sketches and ideas about bicycles
It has been a while (eg 2008) since you could get a Jones titanium Diamond frame. We have been receiving numerous requests for us to make more and we are finally pleased to announce that we’re doing a small run. They should be ready to ship by mid-November. We are taking pre-orders for frame […]
I recently bought a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition camera.
Here is an experiment I did to see the action of the tires on ground.
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 […]
I’ve been busy here with building up bikes, wheels and rolling chassis along with frame sets and wrapping bars. I have not added to the blog as I want to take care of the bikes that need building first. Most of my rides have been test rides for newly built bikes to be shipped […]
Steve Worland’s test of the steel diamond frame is now out, over in the UK, in the Summer 2011 issue of What Mountain Bike. I can’t reproduce the article here, that wouldn’t be right, but I can suggest you see if you can get hold of a copy (and I’ll ask the publishers about […]
Ok, catching up with myself here and I’ve had the first of the geometry details graphics sorted. There will soon be more to explain some of the thoughts, details and machinations that make my bikes what they are. This one, the titanium spaceframeset has been added to the production framesets page on my website, […]
Biff has been in touch, from the UK, to say that the steel diamond framed Jones bicycle (it featured in an earlier blog post) is now with Steve Worland for a What Mountain Bike Magazine test. Steve is a much respected cyclist and experienced journalist so it will be interesting to hear what he […]
Right, this is the first of several blog posts as I attempt to catch up with telling you (the reader) everything that I’ve been up to since I last posted. It’s been too long, and I’ve been very busy. There is a lot going on at Jones Bicycles this year. It is all good, […]
I’ve been riding with the new steel frame and forks.
The snow will be here soon.
On this ride I kept everything in the bags and off my back. There is another water bottle in there too.
I’ve been choosing the fat wheel over the 29″ most of the time.
