aesthetic qualities come from form following function, the look is just a byproduct of the intended purpose. To judge something primarily on its looks does seem a bit short sighted in terms of bike design.
Well, Jeff Jones does not think that his bikes are objects of beauty, even more so, he insists that there is nothing in the Spaceframe because of looks. Everything there is function driven, and if you carefully go over the frame, you will see that. Now, as i wrote in the opening statement, it took me a while to see these things, but once you see them, you see bikes in a very different way.
Spaceframe's beauty is different than a traditional, "lickedover", smoothed and color coordinated frame design. Tube manipulation on these frames all function directed. But I also find these bikes (Spaceframes) beautiful, but like many ppl said before, its all in the EYE.
Jeff Jones Bikes will be (one of 6 builders) exhibited in Museum of Arts and Design (NY) The exhibition features bicycles by: Mike Flanigan, Alternative Needs Transportation (A.N.T); Jeff Jones, Jeff Jones Custom Bicycles; Dario Pegoretti, Pegoretti Cicli; Richard Sachs, Richard Sachs Cycles; J. Peter Weigle, J. Peter Weigle Cycles; and Sacha White, Vanilla Bicycles.
