Ashland Oregon’s Jones Bikes is stepping up to replace their fender vendor (see what I did there?). The goal? To make their own Jones Fender Blanks for tire sizes from 3.8″ to 4.8″. These fenders can be bought as blanks with separate, specific-size black fender stays or silver adjustable stays to fit your bike, allowing for a more custom fit with little modification needed. Photo c. Jones Bikes After losing their fender supplier, and taking a few years looking for a new one, Jones Bikes were never able to find a good replacement for them. Jeff had fenders on his bikes but wanted to stock some, as they were constantly getting requests from customers.
Tired of searching, Jones Bikes decided to just buy the tooling and molds for the fenders and are getting them made by the same USA fabrication company that made them before.
The Jones Fender Blanks are made from “tough, light, and durable ABS” so they are supposed to be very resistant to impact damage or cracking.
They want you to know that they don’t have complete fender kits, sets, or installation instructions yet. But they do have the fender blanks and some of the original fender stays in stock now.
The black stays (above) are said to be the last of the basic 15″ and 16″ fender stays that were made by Jones Bikes’ original fender maker. Made from aluminum and painted black
Available in 15″ or 16″ lengths
These are said to fit well on Jones bikes […]
