    you are referencing the page the images are on, not the images themselves. Images end in .jpg

    I've changed it to links instead – can't seem to get it to work πŸ™

    There you go.

    Very intrigued by extremely high bar position.

    that's being polite, by the way πŸ˜‰

    you've presumably dropped your saddle for these shots? where does it sit normally?

    That looks very, very wrong.

    Is that saddle at the right height for you?

    Bar height matches the position on my Stumpy FSR – actually – its a bit lower on the Jones – but the saddle is lower on the Jones too. I'm thinking of experimenting with the bar height anyway, I may swap it with the stem from the Stumpy – which is lower – I'll see how it feels this afternoon on the Downs.

    I am quite keen to see what these bikes ride like.

    Just wondering though, what is the point of that HUGE front tyre? Is it just for looks or does it actually have a functional purpose?

    I'd also question the saddle height and the huge front tyre.
    Running it as a 1×9 with a chainring that small you might want a shorter cage rear mech. or a larger chainring.

    Wheels too close together, has it been in an accident?

    Comfort.

    OK – I've changed the stem, you'll be happy to hear! Looks a lot better πŸ™‚

    Yes the mech is temporary – it came with the brakes as a job lot on ebay. However since buying the frame was somewhat expensive – these alterations may take a little time. The gearing I'm happy with – I've used this gearing on my FSR for a while, though I may add a second chainring in the future.

    The Modded chainset I did myself.

    The modded chainset is very pretty. Well done.

    I love those Jones spaceframes only downside is I'll never have enough money to buy one πŸ™

    Is that a 29t up front?

    You will have to shorten the chain to prevent it dropping and run a short rear cage.

    Other than that looks fab

    There's got to be a Jones South Downs ride in the New Year, surely. So many (well three or four) in the area. Worth doing if only for the looks on people's faces!

    Just got back from a quick spin – conditions are awful – initial impressions are that it's a LOT smoother than I was expecting (coming from a full suss) – front end is easy to pop up but it climbs well – conditions were too bad to give it a proper test. Looks like the weirwolf LT is not a good mud tyre!

    Chainring is a 32t – works fine – chain stayed on, if it becomes a problem – I'll fix it.

    Oh and the lower bar height feels OK.

    Nice,
    Will keep an eye out for you.
    Is that saddle height correct – does your back hurt when climbing

    Is that a 1.8 tyre on the front ?
    If so its a bit overinflated. πŸ™‚

    Nice. I'd love a go on one of them.
    Can you feel it flex ?
    Mind if I ask what one costs…?

    Looks just like that one what was pinched and caused a gert big thread on here a while back….

    😯

    Just kidding. Looks good. I like the oddness of Jones bikes, even if they do need a basket on the front…. πŸ˜€

    **** me…Just what is the point of "That"?

    Whilst everyone is entitled to buy whetever they want, that contraption looks like a pointless waste of nice materials to make something 'different' but in reality its nowhere near a decent HT with good forks and tyres, and no beardy weirdy can convince me otherwise.

    Peregrine

    Well its certainly different, can't say i dislike it but i won't be buying one soon either.

    Front wheel looks a little close to the pedals – do your shoes miss it??

    I like the tractor tyre at the front, be great in this snow, and it's good to see a properly braced front fork. (Although it would make more sense to me if straight tubes were used)
