Jeff Jones: A Man & His Bikes

Share Facebook 0 Twitter Pinterest Google+

Filmed over the course of four rides near their headquarters in Southern Oregon, Jones Bikes’ latest video combines awesome skills and incredible drone footage, with Jeff Jones’ explanation into what makes his bikes tick.

Learn more about the riding, the rider, and the theory behind the Jones Plus, the Jones 29, and the Jones H-Bar by watching the film below… Skills and great filming, it’s a fascinating insight into a different approach to what a bike can be, and the design process that goes with it.

“A friend and customer of mine introduced me to to Michael at Southern Oregon Drone and they both pushed to make this project happen. After seeing another bike video they produced, I was sold. We started shooting in October and took two Jones bikes (a 29 and a Plus) out on four rides, over the course of two months. The result was hours of drone footage as well as video from a DSLR and various GoPro mounts. In addition, Michael was convinced that we needed footage of me explaining what makes these bikes work; so we shot some unscripted QA video that rounded it all out.” – Jeff Jones

Produced by Southern Oregon Drone.

    Yeah, if I was an incredible rider I wouldn’t need suspension either. :)

    I can get it though; I am a mediocre rider, at best, and I have been riding 29+ rigid for a while (until trying some new stuff recently). It’s a different riding style, for sure.

    Fine film. Is the mono-aerobar in the video custom? Is JJ selling them if it of is creation?

    Great video. Thanks for sharing.
    Jones Bikes are pretty magical. Most of the time, people have an idea what they want to do on a bike and then they go get a bike to do it. My experience with my Jones was the opposite. I built it up, rode it around as an everything bike, and it really did make me feel like I wanted to find the biggest challenge to tackle with it. It had never crossed my mind to tackle a big event like the Divide, but my Jones was the first bike that made me think, “I’d love to do something like that. This bike could do that.”

    Hey Tobie,

    Good to hear from you! I’m trying out the Plus right now, and I have to say, I’m in complete agreement with everything you say…
