Jones Diamond frame + unicrown fork

Har fått øynene opp for Jeff Jones sin unike vri på terrengsykler. Spaceframe'n, den beste og dyreste modellen, er ukonvensjonell for å si det mildt. Og den skal være overraskende god på skogsstier:

Jeg er frista til å kjøpe den billigste versjonen, Diamond framesetet. Her er det han har å si om den:

My bike has a slacker seat-tube and a shorter top-tube than 'normal' bikes... the head angle and rake with this wheel size (more rake, slacker head-tube-angle and bigger wheel) determines the trail which helps determine the handling. Slacker angles keep the rider's weight off the hands and makes the front end easy to lift; the center of gravity is moved back and down for more control, with less shock to the upper body, more traction under braking, and a bike that is much harder to endo. This bike feels quick but also has a laid back feel. It's the best handling bike I've designed.

Noen som har vært borti disse syklene her i Norge? Eller vet noe om hvor man kan få kjøpt en?
