- Steely Jones
After wanting a Jones for ages, I was finally lucky enough to be able to get one.
Thanks to Charlie , this arrived on my doorstep a couple of days ago.
Charlie’s a great guy to deal with and he’s done a fantastic job on the build for me.
A shout out also for JRA, who as per normal have done a great job on the wheels.
I know that it’s a marmite bike, but I think it’s great and green is my favourite colour 8)
Just got to trim the steerer……Posted 6 years ago

That looks really nice.
Is it heresy to put normal bars on a Jones?
It’s got the Jones bars fitted to it with the longer ESI’s.

Whats with the tape on the rear stays?
It’s a SS and the non drive is safe isn’t it????
That Green looks better in the flesh IMO.
The tape is just the self amalgamating tape that I always put on my bikes. Just to stop the usual chainstay marks.
It’s got the singlespeed dropout fitted with the Pauls bolt on axle.

welcome to the jones clan…it’s probably one of the most common bikes around now. Get a knard on that front pronto!!
Funnily enough, I’ve got a Knard in the back room 😀Posted 6 years ago

I’ve gotta get a go on a Jones. That frame looks fun! How tall are you, assuming that’s set-up for you?
I’m just over 5ft 7 in height.
I usually ride with a BB axle to top of seat measurement of 29″ (it’s actually 30″ in the pics) so I’ve now lowered it a bit.
I’m running it with a 100mm / 0 degree stem and it feels bob on; although I’ve not got loads of miles on it yet.Posted 6 years ago
Thanks for all the great comments, Charlie did an amazing job on the build.
I was a bit undecided on silver or black kit, but finally decided on the silver. I’m glad I did and I’m over the moon with the way it turned out.
I’d wanted a Jones for ages and saw a green one in the flesh earlier this year. I thought the colour was fantastic and seeing it first hand really sold it to me. I think it’s called ‘Grass Green’ RAL6010.
Not too sure what the bike weighs but it’s definitely lighter than I thought it was going to be. I haven’t even got a set of scales to weigh it, although I don’t think I’ve ever weighed a bike.Posted 6 years ago
