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.

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.

 

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 […]

Fresh Jones Stock

By |February 20th, 2015|

It was quite a delivery but it’s great to have so many things available again. We now have Jones Plus framesets in stock, and 710mm aluminum Loop H-bars! We’re shipping all the pre-orders out as soon as we can and  everything else not reserved is available in the store. Stock is limited though so […]

Thru-Axle Ti Spaceframe

By |February 4th, 2015|

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 […]

Jones Plus Standover Heights

By |February 2nd, 2015|

OK, here are two photos (click for bigger) showing the standover height for the 25″ (effective top tube) and 24″ (ETT) Jones Plus versions. Standover isn’t everything – there’s a lot more in Jones Geometry – but these are useful for people wanting to get an idea of how they might stand astride a Plus.

Make […]

Testing times

By |January 7th, 2015|

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 […]

650b (27.5) wheels in a Jones 29 Spaceframe

By |November 20th, 2014|

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 […]
