This is the Jones geometry (and superb handling) as a traditional diamond frame. This, being easier to build, costs less than the Spaceframe version, and while it doesn't offer the same compliance, the seat and seat stay tube dimensions have been carefully selected to both improve ride and reduce the weight. The frame is TIG welded 4130 chromoly with a butted down tube. The cable guides and bottle bosses are brazed on. The fork is all 4130. The frame and fork are ED black and then powdercoated for a durable finish. The Truss and Jones forks all have clearance for 29 X 2.55 and 26 X 3.7” fat tires. Hub spacing is 135mm which allows for a very stiff and strong front wheel.
Strengths: Strong frameset inspires confidence on the roughest of trails. I have a Surly Fat Larry 3.8 up front which eats up the bumps when the trail gets rugged and technical. I have the unicrown fork. The h-bars and the comfortable upright riding position make it easier for me to stay in the saddle for an extended period of time, longer 2-3 hour rides.
Overall fantastic bike. Great for the trails and ALSO for the road. I have an extra wheelset so I can swap out my knobbies for semi-slicks for the pavement.
