Steel Spaceframe and truss fork

Steel Spaceframe and Truss fork
Steel frames have the same geometry, clearances, features, gearing options, handling and balance points as the titanium frames but at a lower cost, heavier and a different feel. Since steel is stiffer than titanium smaller tubes are used. The ride is similar to the ti frame (it has the Jones geometry after all) but it is different. It does feel vertically stiffer compared to the titanium Spaceframe but it's a very good, solid feel. It's steel and steel is good.

The steel Spaceframe and Truss fork produces a ride that is stiffer than the titanium version but smoother than the Diamond steel model. The tubes used can be smaller than the Ti versions as steel is stiffer and this then allows the flex to be carefully managed to deliver efficiency and comfort.

Construction: The frame is TIG welded 4130 chromoly with a butted down tube. The cable guides and bottle bosses are brazed on. The fork is all 4130. The frame and fork are ED black and then powdercoated for a durable finish.
