Everyone loves a Jones. Don't they?
Ticking all the 'freakbike' boxes. Different sized wheels, non-standard components, singlespeed, Jones bars, funny tyres...

It’s the Marmite of the bike world. You’ll either think it’s the best bike ever, or you’ll wonder what on earth all the fuss is about. Jeff Jones titanium frame (with a 29er wheel out back). The frame is built to offer a great deal ‘natural’ suspension from the flex of the design and the material – and add to that the truss fork, again offering a lot of natural ‘give’. And then there’s the 4in Surly monster Endomorph tyre, built onto a Large Marge rim… Oh, and Jones bars…

And seemingly tame by comparison, Chipps has fitted one of Cane Creek’s new top of the range 110 headsets – in purple, naturally – to his gnarly Orange Blood build-up. Now, what colour rims next? He’s toying with either polished gold, or neon green…
