Fans of ‘the original bearded framebuilder who lives in a shed in the woods’ will be over the moon to hear that Mr Jeff Jones is to come out with a range of steel frames made in Taiwan to his design, bringing the cost of owning one of his radical bikes right down to earth. If you’re not a fan, you won’t care, but don’t harsh their buzz if you don’t. They might even be ‘stoked’.
Chris King/Cielo Bikes
OK, it’s ‘We got it wrong’ time. When we ran our original Eurobike Story on Chris King’s new GripLock system, we wrongly assumed that King had never been an Aheadset Licensee – turns out it’s been one all along and just didn’t like the tapered split-ring idea. Now it’s come out with what it reckons is a good version of it and it’ll fit all regular 1 1/8th King threadless headsets ever made.
