Jones Titanium Plus SWB

Not mine; we just finished building this up for a customer. It is a really cool bike so I thought I would share some pictures.

Shown with 27.5x3.0" tires; we are currently building a 29" wheelset which he plans to run with 2.6" tires.

Jones Titanium Plus SWB Space frame
Jones Truss fork
Jones Carbon H-bar
SRAM X01 Eagle with XX1 chain and cassette
SRAM G2 Ultimate brakes
Cane Creek EE wings titanium crankset (custom anodized)
Firefly titanium seatpost

He will have a custom titanium stem built as well when he settles on the final fit.

The bike is super fun to ride based on my brief test ride

Thanks for sharing!

I only know my basic Jones Complete, but I agree with your ride report. I'd like to try a space frame.

Great build! Looks crazy fun and you minded all the details well.

A Jones Ti Spaceframe with Truss fork is literally at the top of my perpetual want list.

I have seen one of those ONCE, at sea otter. I asked the rider about it...turns out it was Jeff himself. DOH!

I personally could not make that leap for the $$$'s to fund a rig like that BUT I sure do admire it and appreciate the passion.
