Seatpost Clamp  

Zoom Alloy Quick Release with Brass Bushing. 31.8mm



Front Hub  

150x15mm Thru-Axle hub with Sealed Cartridge Bearings. Canted flanges angle the spokes in toward the spoke holes in the rim, and the wide and even flange spacing makes for an extremely strong and stiff wheel. Cutaways in the flanges and relief inside the hub keep weight to a minimum, making this the perfect center for a super stiff, super strong wheel.

Chromed brass nipples


Shining DB-X50 50mm wide double wall anodized black 6061-T6 Aluminum. This is a very high-quality rim that shares features with many name brand ones. Bead lock bump keeps the tire on the rim even at low pressures. Tubeless ready.


Maxxis Chronicle 27.5 x 3", 60 TPI.  All around good tire with a great balance of low rolling resistance and traction, making it a great choice for the widest range of conditions.

Brake Cable Housing  

Jagwire KEB-SL, Pro Compressionless brake housing - linear strand, Kevlar® reinforced, compressionless brake housing with Slick-Lube liner. This is the same great housing we use on all of our bikes that come with mechanical brakes because it gives an extremely smooth and solid feel at the lever with more stopping power.

Shift housing  

Jagwire LEX-SL, 5mm, This is Jagwire's best standard shift cable housing. Linear strands of steel are used to encircle the Slick-Lube Liner creating a compressionless ring. This delivers responsive, precise shifting. 5mm housing is more durable and has more room for the inner wire to slide smoothly even if contaminated with dirt, compared to standard 4mm shift housing.


KMC X10, with MissingLink, 10 speed

Shifter Cable

All sizes of the Jones Plus SWB have a 69° head tube angle, and a 72° effective seat tube angle.  The chainstays are 17.68"/449mm from bb to axle center.

Wheel base: Small: 41.9"/1066mm, medium: 42.98"/1091.72mm, large: 44.05"/1118.95mm



Tire and wheel:

The Jones Plus SWB is designed mainly to be used with either 27.5 x 3" or 29 x 2.3-2.6" tires.  It has lots of clearance with these tires. If you live in a place where clearance isn't much of an issue (a dry environment, for instance), and want to run something larger, in the rear, we have found that smaller 29x2.8 with reasonable clearance. A 27.5”x3.8”  fat front wheel will fit and is a great option.

Check out this SWB bike with a 27.5" x 3.8" fat tire up front and a big 27.5" x 3.25" tire in the rear.

    SWB complete

    Posted by Jerry Hyman on 13th Oct 2018

    When I bought the Bridgestone MB-3 we were in LA surrounded by fire roads that went on for miles and miles..Santa Monica’s, San Bernardino’s, Arrowhead, Big Bear, Ventura..and there were hairballs of single track that connected but I rarely if ever went on those. It would be like spontaneously speaking Urdu to me. Loved the fire roads.
    One would not likely purchase this Jones bike iteration as bling but rather for its’ function/ride quality. And even at that someone said it can potentially be a gateway drug…if ya’ think this is good wait’l ya’ try the dressed up version..
    Not consciously trying to ‘go fast’ but rather see how much the bike forgives a relatively skill-less rider. It goes where one points it. The climbing at a certain threshold is all the same but it goes up easier otherwise. Descending is less objective for me. I won’t know until a few more rides if it is the kool-aid effect or I actually let go of the brakes. Sitting is my default posture because of my knees. While they have improved my version of standing is lifting my butt and squeezing the back portion of the for me.
    There are riders who feel close to a bikes handling in spite of the imposition of suspension. There are bare bow archers and there are compound shooters. If the only objective is to nail the target, well then, get a gun. To the extent that better technique can mitigate chunky terrain without loss of vision and joint preservation the rigid bike is my friend. Even tho I mostly ride solo I felt a bit like an interloper with a fins and snorkel at a dinner party of one with suspension…and I don’t wear that kit or own a flat broad billed baseball hat either…but I do have a proper baseball hat somewhere…maybe from the Brooklyn Dodgers...

    Comfortable, Versatile and Capable

    Posted by Mike F on 4th Sep 2018

    Overall this is just a really fun, versatile bicycle. It’s undoubtedly the most comfortable bike I’ve ever ridden. I purchased a size Large, and I can tell you that as someone who is 6’4” with a 37” inseam it’s a revelation to be able to ride a bike that doesn’t have me all hunched over with the saddle 6” higher than the bars. Thanks for the long steerer tube and short cockpit, Jeff!

    And while what I’d read about the bike had me expecting it to be comfortable, what really surprised me is how confidence inspiring and in control the whole package makes me feel on technical singletrack. My first time trail riding on the bike and I was cleaning sections I’d never been able to make it through before. It really makes the riding position of other mountain bikes seem overly aggressive for no reason.

    The build kit is workmanlike, but it gets the job done. The gear range is plenty for my purposes and Deore is always solid. I’m also a fan of mechanical disc brakes and I’ve had no issues the ones on this bike since getting them adjusted.

    I’m also a fan of all the bosses and mounts on the frame; as someone who prefers to ride without a hydration pack it’s nice to be able to carry up to five water bottles for longer trips, not to mention mounts for up to four cargo cages!

    Okay, so any criticisms? Just one, and it’s exceedingly minor: I simply couldn’t get the stock quick-release seatpost collar to grip tight enough to keep the seatpost from slipping. Not a big deal as I prefer hex bolt seatpost collars anyway, and replacing the stock collar with a hex bolt one has fixed the issue.

    In the end, I see this bike as a great starting point for me. I have no doubt I’ll make upgrades to parts down the line, but that’s only because I can see myself riding this frame for many, many years to come. No matter what type of riding you’re interested in, I’d highly recommend giving a Jones a try. I only wish I wouldn’t have waited this long!

    I've been hip to the wizardry coming from Jeff Jones for about fifteen years. I mounted a pair his original titanium H-hars on my 1X1, and they transmogrified that bike. I've watched his magnificent bicycles evolve from piecework to production frames to production bicycles. If this were linear algebra, the lines would converge at "Buy This Now"... So, I did. I spoke with Jeff about fit and sizing, and was directed to the medium size for my 6'1", 32 inch inseam. I have waited until I have ridden some miles on this bike to review it; I was not disappointed. Sixty miles, divided between a gravel grinder and an urban trail session, have given me an unsatiated appetite for more miles on this bike.

    The build: Everything is done right. Choices in kit support the Jones philosophy, reliability, and robustness. It's obvious to me that this is a builder's bike, not an exercise in price-point compromises. The bike is striking in it's beautifully curated blackness, absent superfluous logos. Small things like abundant braze-ons, removable-core tubes, and tubeless-ready rim tape don't go unnoticed. To be fair, I'm a big Clydesdale, and almost 300 mm of unsupported no-name seatpost failed to inspire confidence. I swapped it for a Thomson and a Clyde-wide saddle.

    The ride: The angles are slack, the cockpit short, the weight biases towards the back tire. It feels strange, deliciously so. I am reminded of both a 1940's Schwinn and the English 3-speeds I have owned. In my hours in the saddle, I have found myself crouching over the bars, only to remember to slide my hands aft and sit UP. This upright posture is kind to the lumbar and redirects your gaze forward, far beyond the few feet in front of your tire. Spinning in this posture feels almost like striding in seven-league boots, and I swear there's another gear in sitting up and being able to breathe so deeply. Nimble, yet stable, climbs like a goat, inspires out-of-the-saddle dancing on the pedals.

    Fun. To. Ride.

    There are mountain bikes that people still talk about forty years later. I believe this will be one of those bikes.

    Jones Plus SWB complete bicycle review

    Posted by George on 7th Aug 2018

    I made the my first ride today on the Jones, 10 miles of singletrack. The bike worked well, an improvement over my last 27.5+ bike, much more nimble, a bit better ride, maybe faster, time will tell. I did feel more "in" the bike than on it. Of course 27.5+ tires have endless traction, even on a steep uphill when I got off course (need to lean over the bars a bit more) I found that as long as can pedal the bike will find traction and keep moving uphill. On the portion of the trail known as the "rimbender" with nicely banked turns I found it to be a bit more controllable at speed than even my full suspension bike. I would give the bike a 5, but while putting it together I found a couple of issues - the rear wheel does not run true and the front brake rotor is warped. This before I ever rode it an inch. The chainline is also less than wonderful, but that appears to be due to size of the tire, there is only 2mm clearance with the chain when on the biggest cog. So the crank/chainring really can't move over much. You can feel the friction when in the biggest three cogs on the cassette. It does shift well however, and the brakes are very effective for cable disc brakes. I really like the bike and look forward to many years of riding it.

    Jones Plus SWB Complete Bike (Size Medium)

    Posted by Bob MacDougall (AKA 'Santa Fe Bob) on 2nd Aug 2018

    1. This is a fantastic bike at a fantastic price!
    2. I had it setup yesterday (the bike mechanic loved the bike during his test ride!!) and took it out on a 30+ mile ride today on the Santa Fe Rail Trail (mix of hard pack, sand, washed out arroyos, gravel, rocks, single track, lots of up and down, @7000 feet), the Galisteo Preserve (sandy, rocky, hills, single track), and the hilly (some steep) asphalt roads near my house. Absolutely stunning performance and comfort at any speed and condition.
    3. This bike just oozes and inspires confidence. I must admit that I am a recovering roadie and am not the most confident trail rider. However, with the Jones SWB I was like 'The Terminator' and flew up and down everything with ease and no hesitation. I much prefer this bike to my recently sold SB-66. The bike is an incredibly confident climber and super stable on the downhills. I never had any rear wheel slippage when climbing fairly steep gravel and sand hills - - standing or sitting! Absolute beast of a bike!
    4. Everything just seems to work together. The wheels, frame (beautiful black paint with tons of places to connect bottles, fenders, panniers, etc.), saddle, and Jones handlebar just seem to work perfectly together. I was really comfortable on all terrain and even facing strong headwinds.
    5. I was initially concerned about the gearing but it is absolutely perfect for everything I do which includes lots of steep climbs.
    6. I think I'm about 95% dialed in on the bike after this initial ride but expect to make a few minor changes to the saddle position and height. Nothing wrong with the way it is now but I think I can make it even better.
    7. BTW, my riding background is that I am a very experienced roadie who has completed a ton of centuries, including the Triple Bypass in Colorado, ridden all over the Dolomites in Italy, owned 3 totally custom bikes including a Pinarello Montello and Moots Vamoots YBB.
    8. As noted above, as an owner of 3 custom bikes, I can't describe to you how impressed I am with my Jones Bike! Jeff really got the quality, sizing, components, and geometry right on this baby.
    9. Finally, I was really impressed that Jeff took the time to call me up when I emailed a few questions to his company. Really great gentleman who is beyond enthusiastic about his product. Very easy to deal with, his advice was spot on, and I really appreciate his integrity when discussing the bike. Thanks to Jeff and his wife who was also super!!
    Highly recommend this bike. Now to see if they have one that will fit my Munchkin-sized wife. :)

    PS: the only thing missing is the 'magic button' that would allow me to do wheel stands, etc. just like Jeff does in his videos! :)

    Jones Plus Complete Bicycle

    Posted by David J Gauthier on 25th Jul 2018

    The bike has changed the way I ride. I use to go from point A to B and back. At 75, it use to be always against the clock, but I have backed off on that. But with the Jones my ride have become exploratory. Everything works great, even the seat. The only change I am making is to go tubeless. Thanks Jeff!
