Jeff Jones bike testing  //   Friday - June 13, 2008

A Big Bear race report will be forthcoming, but it's been a busy week. I mean, when I've got a chance to be testing some Jeff Jones bikes on the trails I'm not going to choose to sit down at a keyboard to write about a ride that already happened, I'm going to put the tires to the dirt.

Jones In The Ferns

Yesterday I led Jeff and a pair of local riders on a 3 hour tour of the rocky goodness of the Frederick Watershed. It was hot, a little humid but a beautiful sunny day and the mountain laurel is in full bloom. Mother Nature doesn't get much better than this. I spent most of my time aboard the new steel single speed with the fat fork and the Endomorph tire. We had a blast despite a few flats (ride impressions will be posted later). After we returned we met up with more riders for a demo I had organized to get more people riding the bikes. Eight more people were able to throw a leg over the bikes and see what the Jones geometry is all about.

After that we headed into town where Jeff gave a talk at The Bicycle Escape about his bikes, design philosophy and showed off his goods. The SSO Factory Team provided Clipper City beer and the shop provided food. After the talk there was a parking lot demo and everyone went home with smiles on their faces. Pretty good Thursday in my book.
