    Are you really criticizing the fit of a 70 year old who hasn't been on a bike since he was a kid? He is lucky to walk a mile on a good day and this set up allowed him to ride four flat miles with his grandkids, see some beautiful terrain and not fall over and break a hip in the process since he could always put both feet flat on the ground while seated if need be.

    You, sir, are an ass.

    On top of that you seemingly have no sense of humor which is probably more sad.

    Welcome to the ignore list. You are the first.

    i am sorry you had to suffer from LyNxitis...on the other hand you should have expected so much and therefore would not have been surprised. its a shame not everybody can have class like me

    by the way, do you think it would make a good commuter bike? what types of rack and panniers would you suggest? thanks in advance

    Yep, some people can come across harsh at times. Some are simply just a straight up ass, no getting around it.

    The view made the ill fitting ride worth it.

    I agree.

    And no offense to Enel, as it is cool, but Aquaholic is 76 years old and he is a pretty good rider too

    EDIT: Damnit, Enel beat me to the punch by mocking the oh so easy target of GeezerHolic

    I wish I could still ride a bike with my dad. Still remember being 4 years old, having my own bike, and going for a ride with him, once I learned how. Major milestone in my life.

    Anyone who can annoy Fo like Lynx does is solid in my book.

    I will try and quote him everytime he says something that is annoying tho so you can see it anyways Enel, you should learn to be more tolerant of your fellow E friends here.

    Sorry you feel that way, you posted the pic, didn't say anything about him not riding bikes regularly, so I took it that was another Jones"perfect fit" pic. I just don't take the BS of one size fitting all riders that Jones throws out and that his followrs seem to take as gospel, if that were so then all cbike companies would only produce one size frame.

    As to your Dad, glad he got out, sorry he hasn't riden a bike since he was a kid. As to 70 being a/the reason I know too many "old geezers" who'd smoke me up any climb and almost stay with me on the descent for me to think of 70 as old and needing anything special in terms of fit/style Hum maybe that's why Aqua and Enel both need the shorter more upright cockpits the Jones provides never thought about their age

    Another Tai-Jones. It's a little different from the prior two I have shown, traditional diamond frame with traditional (but really really fat) two bladed fork...

    We broke it in on a dawn patrol ride today:

















    SuperDan is a much more experienced (and much stronger!) rigid rider than I am. He built this thing up last night and just ripped it today. He felt it required no adaptation and generally was invisible under him. It felt like a slightly more springy version of the Simon Bar with better steering precision. I bounced on it a little and the fore-aft flex is slightly more than the truss fork, but not much at all compared to other forks I have tried. It has a cool shape, sort of like the Willits WOW fork though not as dramatic with the back sweep. I would like to swap forks with him some time to try them back and forth, but we are both pretty happy with our respective set ups, so I doubt that will happen anytime soon.

    The mound of spacers is a consequence of a short un-corrected A-C fork with no top pinch bolt on the truss to take up the space. I told Dan he could solve that with a riser bar but he doesn't like 'em.

    I think I have mine dialed where I want it now, I swapped the stem to something just a wee bit longer, lower, lighter, and blacker




    These things are becoming as common as lizards in these parts.

    Thanks! This is actually in eastern Iowa. I had a business trip to Dubuque, so I brought the Jones with for a maiden voyage. Lots of fun! Really cool trail too.
