I would be interested in your findings although tbh I don’t find the weight of mine (steel diamond and truss) to be a massive issue- doesn’t stop me wanting the ti buzz tho!!
The complete ti diamond feels a lot lighter to pick up and ride, but I haven’t been able to put a long ride in yet to compare the differences.
According to Jeff’s website, the ti truss is 1.83lbs against the steel version at 2.64lbs.Posted 5 years agojamesoSubscriber

Agreed, for what it is it’s almost ‘light’. Compares well to many more flexible and less-capable bikes that can cover similar uses, apart from drops to flat and all that stuff. I like how there’s so many variations of a sound design available, they all handle the same, just feel different.Posted 5 years ago
I love the red diamond with the standard forks.
Biff – Does the steel diamond with standard forks allow for the fitment of mudguards and a rear pannier rack?

That Ti diamond looks fab, i quite like the purple, what is the rear hub?
Steel space frame here, love it to bits.
The rear hub is a Paul Comp Disc Word.Posted 5 years ago
Seems wrong to post this in here alongside the OP’s stunning specimen, but this thread set me off down a path. So I’d just like to lay the blame a the feet of all who posted here.
Gotama was a pleasure to deal with, and I managed to cannibalise several other bikes to sling this together. It’ll be getting some new bits soon enough, but this build get me riding this weekend. 🙂
The front wheel off my 2014 Mukluk fits without issue, no bodging required.
Titanium parts/fork only a matter of time…Posted 5 years ago

Yeah I like the red frame with Ti truss look That’s further off though!
Finger hovering over Eriksen Sweetpost purchase.
I can definitely recommend the Eriksen post, as both my Jones have one fitted.
I usually run Thomson on my bikes, but I found that the Thomson post slipped slightly in the steel frame whereas the Eriksen is spot on.
I ordered mine direct from Eriksen and never got hit with the import.Posted 5 years ago
First ride today. A bit of toe overlap on occasion with the EBB at 6, moved it back to 9 and will see how I get on tomorrow, I’m used to having the axle under my arch when descending on flats, I suspect it will be getting SPDs at some point anyway, which should help.
More tweaking and layback needed. Short wheelbase caught me out on the first drainage ditch I rode, I’m used to riding with a bit of fork weight bias on my Soul, but I can see the Jones really wants you hanging off the back. First impressions good though, very comfortable and nimble, reckon it’ll make a great bikepacking bike.Posted 5 years ago
One thing I forgot to mention was how great it felt climbing out the saddle, really seemed to slot into the space behind the bars. On a spin around the street yesterday after moving the EBB back, it seemed noticeably more responsive to pedal input, no surprises there, it’ll be interesting to see how that translates to the trail.
The sun is shining, I’m off up to Perth for a ride. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
