Jones Bikes


Yesterday, Diana and I were out riding Patapsco, and we ran into a guy riding one of these. It was a pretty lucky set of cirmcumstances, as he was stopped at a cross-roads, and let us eye-ball his rig for a couple of minutes. (Well, anyone who pays almost $10k for a bike probably loves to talk about it.)


I'd seen this thing in numerous magazine articles, but seeing one up close was pretty cool, especially considering their scarcity. The whole thing is titanium. It weighs less than 20lbs (Single Speed), and actually has a decent degree of bump absorption from all that titanium.

There is a good article in issue #136 of Dirt Rag about Jeff Jones the frame builder from Medford, Oregon.

Yeah, I read that article. He's a funny looking dude. I don't think I could pay $9800 for a bike though. I'm sure it's great; it looks cool, but that's a lot of bank roll.

You have to be funny looking to live in Medford Oregon. If I pay 9800 for a bike it better have miles of suspension and provide other services for me.
