BSD Jonesin Fork Review

The Jonesin Fork is made by BSD. With only one really responsive 22mm offset option and two plain colors, this fork is for the simple street rider. Capable of holding up to big tricks, the strong heat-treated chromoly keeps it from shattering to pieces.

Overview

Whether he’s spinnin’, nosin’ or just jonesin’, Sam Jones likes that extra edge up front to keep him balanced.

The Jonesin' forks are Sam Jones signature forks, with a 22mm offset this fork is for riders who love the extra responsiveness of a quick-reacting front end while keeping it street-tough…

Fork Geometry

A: Steerer Length: 157mm

This steerer length is shorter than most. Longer steer tubes require more headset spacers or a frame with a longer head tube. They will also make the bars higher up naturally.

B: Offset: 22mm

Which offset is right for me?

22mm: Steep, responsive, and snappy. Turns will happen fast and feel quick. Nose-manuals will pop up really easily.

C: Dropout Size: 10mm or 3/8"

Designed for front wheels with a 10mm front axle. If your front axle is smaller than your rear, its 10mm.

Conclusion

I love the way BSD keeps it strong and simple. These forks are no exception. Everything is made from top-teir quality that will hold up to beefy riding. These forks are for the rider who does some tech street riding but also likes to addble in the park. The Jonesin forks have a steep 22mm offset that will make nosemanuals easier.
