The Jones Plus Spaceframe in size 23″
Jones Bikes is now taking orders for its new Steel Plus 148 TA and the Steel Spaceframe Plus 148 TA. These updated models refine what is already an extremely versatile and fun bike by switching to through-axles front and rear and adding an extra bottle boss underneath the downtube to allow you to mount triple-boss cages for more storage capacity. The 148 x 12 mm axle spacing in the rear makes it possible to use all boost 11-speed drivetrains, and the 150 x 15 mm front hub spacing gives you the option of using one of the new Jones generator hubs designed for fat bikes.
The new 150 x 15 mm Jones 150-F hub is also available. It features wide, evenly-spaced flanges that make for a super stiff, super strong wheel. It has a continuous axle with press-on endcaps, which makes a super solid hub-fork connection. As in other Jones hubs, the flanges are canted to match the angle of the spokes, and have cutouts, along with relieved areas inside the hub to save weight wherever possible without sacrificing strength.
Jones also has a new carbon rim to go with the hubs. The C-Rim width is 49 mm inner/56 mm outer to make the tire more stable at low pressures. The 3.5 mm thick sidewalls are super-strong, and their blunt, rounded profile makes them less likely to cut through the tire’s sidewall under bottom-out. It’s available in both centered, and off-centered drilling so that you can build a dishless wheel in the front and rear.
