Saturday was the jones first day out.....a nice 25mile shakedown on the tracks and trails it will be used for.....it went superb!

Big thanks to Gil for my T-shirt

0 miles....not for long.

Loved being back on a jones, the comfort and fitment suit me really well.....the fat front soaking up the bumps and the steel frame was very cosy over all terrain....obviously loads less flex than my old Ti spaceframe.
