About us

My name is Jeff Jones. I'm a cyclist committed to the non-suspended bicycle. My ideas and passion have created an exceptional ride - a trail-blazing geometry that delivers superb handling, comfort and efficiency. My bikes are available in titanium and steel, to be ridden off-road (and on) for exploring and racing, adventures and fun. They are outrageously responsive bicycles - frame and forks designed in harmony to provide a rigid bicycle that is anything but. A pure cycling experience like no other.

Available in black or a limited run of purple (Pantone 7665, only 250 available worldwide) with your choice of smooth or knobby tires, and hydraulic or mechanical brakes.

What is the Jones Plus LWB? (back to top)

Here is a video where Jeff talks about this new bike.

 

The Jones LWB was in development for years and introduced in 2014. It has proven itself as one of the most versatile bikes around, winning awards for its abilities as a bikepacking bike, as well as praise for just about all other types of riding. The long wheelbase with set back and upright position puts you in a position that's comfortable and relaxed yet very efficient and great for everything from technical trails to long road rides! It's a bike for touring, commuting, bikepacking, road riding, or mountain biking

The Jones LWB is a bike for riding fast, slow, the rough with the smooth; safely, aggressively, laid-back or raging; with a big load or stripped to the bare essentials; on road, dirt, mud, snow; in the mountains, on the flat lands, around town or across the county; around the world or your local loop; for getting rad or just getting away. It sets the standard for bikepacking, but it’s so much more than that – it’s a bike for technical trails and big trips. It really does it all.

Comparison between SWB and LWB

The SWB and LWB have the same fit. Both handle superbly on and off-road. The difference between them is the distance between the axles (the wheelbase) and the wheels and tires you can use with them. 

The SWB is a little more agile – it can fit 29” x 2.3” - 2.6” or 27.5” x 2.8” - 3.25” tires. The SWB requires less effort to lift the front (or back) end – useful on very technical trails. 

The LWB is reassuringly planted on steep climbs and descents. It’s great for loaded rides and has room for a center kickstand mount.

  Jones LWB medium black smooth   

The LWB can fit tall 29” x 2.3” - 3.25” tires which (with its longer wheelbase) makes it smoother and more stable on rough terrain. 

The geometry Jeff has created is unlike most other bikes. At 42.98"/1091.72mm, the wheelbase of the SWB is by no means short. It’s just shorter than the Jones LWB. 

The Jones SWB is the shorter wheelbase Jones bike with smaller 27.5” x 2.8” - 3.0" tires.

The Jones LWB is the longer wheelbase Jones bike with taller 29” x 2.8” - 3.0" tires.

Below is an animation comparing the LWB and SWB. You can see that the fit is the same, it’s the wheelbase that is the main difference. Check out this Instagram post for an explanation of what the colored lines are showing.

 

Features and Benefits  (back to top)

    • Jones LWB Geometry for a great ride in a wide range of conditions.
    • Frame and fork designed to work together, a frameset. Frame is compatible with Jones Truss Fork for LWB.
    • 4130 chromoly steel frame and fork with butted tubing.
    • Big and tall Jones Spec. wheelset with 29" x 3" (76 - 622) knobby or 29” x 2.8” (70 - 622) smooth, tubeless ready tires on 50mm wide rims allow you to run very low pressures (10 psi - 15 psi) for a smooth and efficient ride. The wide rims also spreads the tire beads making for a tire that folds over less at low pressures while cornering hard, and resists bottoming during hard impacts
    • Jones Spec. rims are taped and tubeless ready for maximum suppleness, better traction, more flotation and comfort along with lower rolling resistance, less flats and more safety, on or off road! Bead lock helps to keeps the tire on the rim even at low pressures.
    • New Jones Spec. rear hub with interchangeable freehub bodies and axles. The complete bikes come with an aluminum HG freehub body and axle. We have compatible aluminum Shimano HG, SRAM XD, and Shimano Microspline freehubs (sold separately). There is also a steel axle for HG and XD freehubs available for added strength (sold separately). 
    • The wheels are drilled for Schrader valves which are stiffer, sturdier and easier to use than presta valves. They have a larger diameter than presta valves allowing for increased airflow and this makes setting up tubeless tires much easier. Changing to tubeless will save about 1.2 lb compared to the Schrader tubes that come with the bike.
    • Big tire clearance. Room for 29” x 3.25”.
    • Jones 710mm Loop H-Bar and H-Grips provide better handling and more comfort than a traditional bar. A wide range of better hand and body positions ensure more power, comfort and control. Jones H-Bar Tape on the rear crossbar for the full range of hand positions. Our most popular bar and grip combination.
    • Wide range Box Prime 9 drivetrain has the same range as some 12 speed drivetrains. With fewer gears and bigger jumps between gears, you don’t have to shift as often.
    • Box Three 9 speed multi-click shifter weighs less than Box Two and costs less. It has a plastic cover, and doesn’t have the hinge for mounting to the bars. The shifting is the same as Box Two. 
    • Box Three cassette is stiffer, ebike ready, and has all steel sprockets for less shifting and better durability. The overall cassette is narrower than a 12 speed cassette for a better chainline.
    • Box Two chain is wider, stronger, and sturdier chain than 12s chain.
    • Box Two derailleur has a stiff Tri-Pack™ Clutch that keeps the chain tight.
    • Fits up to a 38T chainring. This is comparable to the gearing of a road triple with a similar fast gear and an easier climbing gear. 
    • Hydraulic disc brakes, Magura MT Trail Sport. Ergonomic 1-finger HC aluminum lever blade, 4 piston front caliper and 2 piston rear. 203 mm front and 180 mm rear Magura Storm HC rotors and Magura adapters. Increased control and more power, excellent for trail riding. 
    • Or
    • Mechanical/cable actuated disc brakes, Alhonga. Easy to adjust and very adjustable ball bearing disc brake. Super durable with plenty of stopping power at a lower cost. Long pull adjustable reach levers with barrel adjuster. Comfortable silicone brake lever cover.
    • Brazed-in water bottle bosses, rack mounts, and fender mounts. 
    • Brazed-on cable guides for full length brake and derailleur housing. For use with plastic clips or zip ties to attach the housing to the cable guides. 
    • Five rear rack and fender bosses, one on the dropout and four in the seatstay, for the best rack/fender/tire size fit, or for mounting water bottles. The fork can hold two more water bottles.
    • Full fender bosses on the seat and chainstay bridges.
    • Rack bosses on upper seatstays.
    • Triple-boss cage mount underneath the downtube. One triple-boss cage mount on the top of the down tube near the bottom bracket (use it to for a standard two-bolt bottle cage, or a three-bolt cage), and one standard two-boss mount closer to the headtube.
    • Centered kickstand mount. A great bike for dirt, road, mountains, gravel, city, touring/trekking, bikepacking, commuting, fitness, riding around the world or just around your neighborhood.
    • Coated with ED Black for rust resistance and smoother coating underneath the paint.
    • Decals underneath a semi-matte clear coat.

The Jones LWB combines the latest technology with bicycle designs from throughout history and across the planet to make a bike that defies categories and opens ride possibilities like no other. In this new video Jeff Jones talks about  some of the history and thinking that went into creating the Jones Plus.

 

Jeff gives an overview of how the H-Bars work, and the design process that went into making them. The H-Bar is much more than a different-looking handlebar: it's the result of years of prototyping and riding, and the result is a handlebar that gives a very wide range of useful and distinct positions, allows you to use standard mountain bike controls, and has the ability to transform almost any bike into a more versatile and more comfortable machine.
