    Jeff Jones Space Frame

    Hi Guys,

    I'm almost finished with my Jeff Jones SpaceFrame build!

    Here are some pics:













































    The parts I used for this build are:

    Jeff Jones SpaceFrame
    XTR Cranks
    XTR Shadow Carbon Rear Derailleur
    XTR Cogs
    Crank Brothers 29er Cobalt Wheelset
    Continental Race King 2.2 Tires
    Hope Mini X2 Pro Brakeset
    Hope Stem
    Hope Seatclamp
    WTB Shadow Saddle
    Thomson Elite Setback Seatpost
    Cane Creek Proprietary Headset
    Titec J-Bar
    Oury Lock-On Grips
    Oury Lock-Rings
    Crank Brothers Skewers
    Crank Brothers Eggbeater SL Pedals
    Token Ceramic Jockey Wheels
    Ti Bottle Cage
    Paul''s Components Shifter Mounts
    Dura-Ace Bar-End Shifter
    E13 Bashguard
    Garmin 305 Cyclometer
    Ti Rotor Bolts

    I'm waiting for the following items to arrive and then I'll be finished with this build:

    JeffJones Ti Loop Bar
    Hope Ceramic Bottom Bracket
    Goodridge Steel Brake Lines
    Rohloff Chain Guide
    Brooks Saddle

    I'm currently running a 1x9 setup but I left the smallest chainring in place while waiting for the Rohloff Chainguide to arrive. I've ridden her in our local tracks ( XC, Singletrack, DH ) and also have done a couple of century rides with it and I must say the ride is sublime! It easily is my best bike - both road and mtb!

    Thanks for looking guys! I'll try to post some ride pictures soon.

    @Saltyman:

    The ride has been nothing short of amazing. Rides a whole lot better then my Salsa Selma - and I'm running a 100mm fork on the Selma!

    I didn't think wheels like that would look good on a spaceframe but they suit it well, great pics too!

    there are 2 types of fork, the truss, and fat truss.

    mine are the normal forks for standard fitment 29er wheels.

    main reason being, i wasnt fussed if it had the fat forks or not, as i have ordered a fat bike to play on so didnt need the option.

    How squishy is it? I've been seeing a lot of pictures of this style of bike and i am really curious! i mean, if you roll off a rock and hit something that would otherwise significantly compress a suspension fork, can you watch the truss fork bend? can you see the bottom bracket flex downward?

    The truss fork is not "squishy" at all nor does it flex under heavy braking. In fact the opposite is true, it is a very stiff fork for it's relativly low weight.
