From Febs What MTB Page58

What is this? I like the Fat forks, was thinking Cannondale but not sure if alloy or steel frame?
And I can usually tell wheel size from a pic but not sure if this is 26 or 29er! 29 is my guess... ;)

Anyone know? I think it looks great!

Could look like a Jeff Jones Diamond frame. They come with a 135mm fork and with 29" wheels.

Just grabbing the pdf of this mag, no idea but thought I'd have a read of it.

Pretty sure this is right. Jeff Jones does a mental titanium version and then this cheaper (but still pricey!) version

Thank you, spot on I think. I did think of H bar man, so I was on the right mind-track! I think what put me off was thinking of the Ti spaceframe jobber.
It doesn't look as good side on http://www.sidewayscycles.co.uk/product ... 86&clid=29 and I have'nt got the brass for one either but inspiring and radical to see amongst phat framed big suspension forked beasts. :)

Allegedly one of the best riding rigids available, theres a great thread on MTBR about it.

You can have the spaceframe in titanium or steel, but the diamond frame is steel only.

Steel Diamond frameset and Jones fork...

Here's what you are now lusting after :)

http://www.jonesbikes.com/production_framesets.html

Seen a couple of Ti Diamond frames as well but they were the early versions before the production run of steel frames

Jones fork is not as nice as the Truss fork but you need to ride it rather than look at it...never judge a book by it's cover :wink:
