A look at recent bicycle builds….

By |July 31st, 2015|

We’ve been building up a lot of bikes, and thought folks might be interested to see some of them.  Every bike we build is essentially custom; but we do direct customers to components and combinations of parts that we know work well, are reliable, and will function harmoniously together.  The upshot of this approach […]

A ride in the woods

By |July 26th, 2015|

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 […]

You can now, in our store,  select the exact wheel build you want (from the carefully selected range we offer – all tested and approved by Jeff). Rims, hubs, tires and extras are all there for to you choose from and the price will adjust to reflect your choices. That not to say you […]

Introductions and a ride on the Plus….

By |July 15th, 2015|

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 […]

By |July 10th, 2015|

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 […]

Another bike heads out for a long journey

By |June 17th, 2015|

Tim came by the other day to pick up his new Jones bicycle on his way up to Canada to ride the Great Divide.  It was great to see him and help him get set up on his new bike!

The build is a great example of what the Jones 29er frame and truss fork are […]

Ride with a Jones 29 and a Jones Plus Bicycle

By |March 30th, 2015|

We took out a Jones Plus for its first ride to break it in. We also had a new Jones 29 titanium Spaceframe bike (with thru-axles) that had already been ridden a few times. We traded the bikes several times to compare. 29er vs 29 Plus. Both win.

It’s a good read (blush). Click the picture below to read it or you can use this link.

 

Jones in Bicycle Quarterly #51

By |March 11th, 2015|

 

(The pictures above of Bicycle Quarterly were approved to share by Jan as they are not readable.)

“The Jones feels both totally different and yet remarkably similar”

I sent a bike to Jan at Bicycle Quarterly in late August 2014 – they take their time testing bikes there. They do things right. They question things. Jan took it touring and raced […]
