    You could run over a bear with that thing. That looks sweet.

    I've ridden it through bklyn, and it's surprisingly nimble and fast even on the tarmac... well if you can call this mess tarmac
    I sold my Santa Cruz Blur to get the Jones, and I was really afraid I had done a stupid move, but I am soooo happy I did it
    best bike to ride around NYC? a CX rig

    Sweet bike. With that huge front tire you can ride on and off curbs in NYC and hardly notice. Also, you can ride that in the snow and on the beach with the amount of floatation that front tire offers.

    Good work there, enjoy it, she's a beauty

    How heavy is that thing? If it were relatively easy to get up and down stairs, it'd be the perfect urban commuter.

    Great bike- I am guessing it is the only Jones in the NYC area as I have yet to see one at any ride, race or event.

    That does it . . . I'm ordering one! For years, I've been riding a set of the original, Jones-welded Ti H-bars. I kept thinking that I needed a bike to match, but choked on the $$$. Those new steel frames are sweet!

    the whole bike is much lighter than my previous Santa Cruz Blur LT, I know it looks heavy but it's really not...
    those steel frames are sweet and with the truss forks they are "almost" affordable

    i saw 2 or three of his bikes in Ireland at SSWC. all 29ers with normal tires. he was there too. i passed him on a climb, he ripped past me on a descent, then i passed him going uphill again and he informed me he was way over geared (in a 34x18 or something). he still rode strong and finished tied for 4th place.

    Easily my most ridden mountain bike. So much fun. Usually have a regular front tyre on it though. This photo was taken for Wired (UK).

    ^ That's bad ass. I was on a ride in Bend recently with a guy on a Jones bike. Great stuff.

    Not had the chance to ride one yet. But those who have and Jeff himself say it provides suspension benefits. JJ's bikes are praised for their smooth riding characteristics.

    between the tires and the fork it really acts as a front suspension, and tire pressure is the key
    I too have also a regular front 29 wheel as well (not fat) and the difference is substantial, but still absorbing well the trails
    it's an extremely smooth ride, much more than any hardtail I have ridden

    Hmm, pretty sure Jeff wouldn't describe the fork as giving any suspension-like performance. It is very accurate and tracks extremely straight. In a corner it goes where you point, no flex, no judder, no shimmy. I rely on it to be extremely stiff (in a good way).

    29er wheel, large volume tyre and wide bars give comfort and grip and a degree of compliance.

    That's how it feels to me anyhow. Rad bike.

    I should also say that the rear of the bike gives the feel of something like a soft-tail - super comfy. in part due to the long seat post, but also the shaping and structure of the stays and the big wheel and tyre-volume. Very, very sorted.

    I rode mine in Bend when I first picked it up - ace place to ride!
