It’s been a busy spring, and that has meant that we haven’t been putting up as many photos of bikes that we’ve built lately. That doesn’t mean that we haven’t had any to show though, so here are a few highlights from the stand! Most of these builds are minor variations on our standard builds, combining reliable parts that work well together to create a very-functional and cohesive bike. A few add more accessories to outfit them more fully for a specific purpose, such as touring, which is always fun for us because we get to imagine them out exploring!
Jones Plus, Shimano XT 10 speed drivetrain, M8000 cranks and brakes, aluminum Jones Loop H-Bars, WTB Scraper rims, Maxxis Chronicle tires. This is a great example of our standard Plus build. It makes for a great all-around bike that is at home just about anywhere!

Surly O.D. cranks, Shimano XTR 10 Speed drivetrain and brakes, 50mm carbon rims, carbon Loop H-Bar, Maxxis Chronicle tires, Revelate Sweetroll, and Jones Plus Framepack. This Plus is outfitted with reflective stickers and reflective panniers and a component group that is both light and durable to make a great all-terrain touring bike!
Titanium Jones 29 Diamond frame with titanium Truss fork, carbon Loop H-Bar, Shimano XTR 11 Speed drivetrain and brakes, 50mm carbon rims, Tubus Logo Evo rear rack, Ortlieb Back Roller panniers, Schwalbe Big Apple tires, Jones Diamond Framepack, Jones Loophole pack, Revelate Sweetroll.
