    Could be N+1 time!

    Nice, it’s what a lot of people have been wondering and trying to get a bigger tyre in the back.

    Wonder if the wheelbase / geometry will change ? Krampus is at least 2″ longer than a Jones.

    Nice πŸ™‚

    Just need a better selection of 29+ tyres to be released now.

    Thank goodness I’ve just got myself a 29er+ that I love or else I’d need one of these…

    16.5″ seat tube, 23″ top tube with 650b+(27.5x 2.8 ish) tyres ( 29+ I think too big for me) I can only wish.

    Don’t suppose there’s any chance of a price crash on the older frames, is there?

    Duffer – there might be a price crash on second hand frames of course…

    Nice!

    Just need a better selection of 29+ tyres to be released now.

    I’m counting on this. My 29+ should be ready in a couple of months and I don’t fancy a winter on knards…

    Bonty ones look a bit better as do Dirt wizards if they ever materialise

    Maxxis Chronicle is a tyre option. As for older frames ‘crashing’ – too good for that!
    Not older, just different. Two models now ‘29‘ and ‘Plus‘. More words and pictures to come.

    I don’t think this bike replaces the current one, seems like an alternative with mods to suit the big OD tyres. Compromises either way whatever you do. I expect you’ll see a few more steel frames SH before long though.

    Mmm, just when i got “happy” with my collection.

    I don’t NEED, but I think a ride might prove otherwise.

    Biff- speak next week. DON’T sell me anything πŸ˜†

    Not selling. Talking about bikes.

    Compromises?! :O)

    I’ll settle for a Jones compromise over many others’ ideals any day.
    Out on my old Jones today – what a brilliant bundle of compromises.

    yeah.. you know what I mean : ) ‘balances’ then. Was out on the ‘old’ one over the weekend after a week away doing a load of road miles. Straight on, no adjustment time, grins and slides, just great.

    I’m cool with compromises – it’s true.
    Can’t have everything. That’s just greedy.

    Out on mine tonight for the first time in 5 months (ruptured kidney), trying out my new carbon wheels, it flys πŸ˜€

    Better start saving my pennies!

    Looking at the pictures- I was trying to see if it has a wider BB to allow for the larger tyre and keep the chainstays short?

    Really fancy some carbon h bars too.

    Rode my SSSF the other day.

    Still confused as to where I left my legs the next day. It was ace and rode like a dream but I showed my age the next day. I need to ride more!

    I have the perfect pair, no need for a third……………….

    FRC, glad you’re on the mend and back out on the trails, that’s great news πŸ˜€

    Thanks Paceman, I had a spin round Stanmer with Ronnie and Carl, hopefully I’ll be out for a Thursday ride soon!

    I’m very happy with my compromised SS Diamond frame. Maybe it depends on terrain and other things but I can’t see how less tyre choice and presumably more weight would improve it?
    And Tim you definitely need to ride more!

    Premier Icon timbur

    I do.
    Work keeps getting in the way. No bad thing but better balance is needed for next year.

    Hopefully by the time that the Jones Plus is available, so will more tyre options. More weight? Depends what you’re comparing it to, frame will be the same, so it’s only a beefier rear tyre your adding? And compared to a fat front setup, overall a bit lighter. I’m not sure how your diamond is compromised anyway?

    It was just the compromises/balances comments from James and me.

    Nope – Matthews builds are always compromised in his eccentric decisions on mix and match componentry πŸ˜†

    Jones Plus β€” 29+ like never before . . . .

    I really like the look of that.

    First time I’ve seen an in-line seat post on a Jones.
    Would like to swing a leg over this at some point.

    Tim – are you on your Jones tomorrow?

    Hi,many short people 5’8″ had any experience on these bikes? The sizes quoted on the new frame seem quite long.

    I am currently toying with the idea of a hardtail and I do like something a bit different so this looks very interesting.

    I’m 5’9″. Fit is really nice – 80mm stem, layback post.

    Really, really fun bike to ride & super confidence inspiring. Love it.

    5’8″ on a Spaceframe, 90mm stem and layback seatpost.

    Sadly – I don’t think the JonesPlus will fit me, as the standard diamond is just too big for me. I’ll have to wait for the Spaceframe version.

    I thought the blurb was a bit odd.

    I’ll be out on the South Downs on mine today πŸ˜€ see how the 29+ front compares to my carbon fat front.

    I’m on a Diamond I should add. Buy a red one, they’re lovely. πŸ˜€
