    29r??
    size??

    But surely they are the ultimate bike? So perfect no one would ever sell, etc?

    If you look at the link it says 29er! And out with the tape…19″ seat tube C to top. One size 23″ effective TT (this was before Jeff made them up in a 24″) Oh and the frame is made from Ti! 🙂 Phil Wood EBB drilled out, SS or D hanger at the rear.

    Yea I know…6 bikes all beauty’s, one of them must go. Could sell the Strong but reckon the Jones is more collectable. Made by the man himself, this is now impossible to get. And if you see the build sequence …Aqua’s thread on MTBR for example you can see that this frame was made with perfection in mind!

    Fatface…click on the link in the second post!
    Flashheart…I agree, its just a bike, its just a very very nice bike! I dont think its niche, I think it is very very well made and designed and you get what you pay for but after the first £500 each moment of love n care costs $$$$$….wonga! If your bored go ride in the frozen mud….then lets talk! 🙂

    I think you need to be a member of MTBR to see the pics.

    BTW at todays exchange rate the Merlin Jones will cost £3,600 without postage or tax, which could easily take it over £4000. So you need to add a fork to this Jones, an 09 Reba will set you back £400, so for just over half price you get an original Jones that’s front suspended. Ok some may want a rigid ride…fine go look elsewhere, but I know there are some of you who would love this particular kind of Jones…….well?

    come on stu, its not just a frame its a lifestyle choice

    kidsuma didnt you get the memo making it clear jones owners must try harder than others not to offend/wind up/impress riders of non-jones’?

    well, i definitely can’t afford to buy it, but i was interested so i just had a look on the jones site, then signed up to mtbr to look at the photos – took me literally 15 seconds. don’t know what all the fuss is about tbh. yeah, i have to agree it is a bit nichey, but that doesn’t make the dude an arse, it’s just a seriously well thought out but expensive bike. anyway let’s leave this thread in peace for people who might actually want to buy it…

    Nobody will buy it unless the lottery numbers come up nicely. The piccy would be nice nevertheless.

    Calm down its not like he has asked you to send a cheque to nigeria then will send the the frame on to somalia then you go and see his grandmother in canada or something like that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess if your that serious about buying a jones then you just want one and come on a jones with suspension !!!! isn’t that like beef in a veggie pasty or something

    Kidsuma,

    Hello, I’m interested but I can’t register to MBTR or see the pictures (Council restrictions I think) at the moment.
    Can you drop me an Email to simoncatmur at hotmail dot com and I’ll follow this up with you.

    Thanks

    Why do people feel the need to ‘get involved’ in someone elses sale if they have no intention of buying the thing! If you know what a Jones frame is, you know it’s going to be expensive!

    I just wish I has £2k to spend on it!

    Sorry, guess this makes me as bad as the rest, but at least I was looking because I love Jones’s work and was just dreaming you may be a complete fool and be asking £300 for it 🙄 😀

    Remember, the OP is a real person; there really is no need to be offensive about him! For the record, the OP appreciates and rides quality bikes. I have bought frames from him before and been very pleased; indeed, I would be seriously interested in this one if I had the dosh ;~)

    Some good discussion about this frame, and Jones bikes in general at http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?postid=348185. The Jones haters need to take a look at Jeff Jones’ 26er on that thread 🙂
