The 10fifty Team - Bones - Guide Profile

Name Matt Jones
Acronyms: Bones / Bona
Job Mountain Bike Guide
DoB: 20/08/1975
Bio highlights: Worked for many years with in one of Britain’s ‘premier bike shops’ with 10fifty supremo Ian. We helped the poor, confused people of Birmingham to see the error of their ways and stop buying purple anodized components.
Worked in Sram’s industrial design department, Germany. Good stuff.
Enrolled as a guide for 10fifty in 2003. 
When I’m not guiding, I’m teacher for students aged 11-18.
First Bike: Raliegh Mirage 1989. Rigid steel. Biopace chainset. U-Brake and thumbshifters. Cutting edge at the time. Honest. This bike often brought a faint tear to my eye. Mainly because it was 23” frame and I kept smacking by nuts on the top tube.
Bona’s Favorite Bike: Yeti ASR. No ifs, buts or maybes. The Best XC bike I have ever ridden or owned.
Bona’s best trails: In Chamonix; the descent from Col de Balme to Trient – the best 14km of none-stop downhill bliss I have ever ridden.
  Worldwide; Telegraph trails, Durango. A sweet seemingly endless joy
  Local trails; my home stomping ground in the U.K - Cannock Chase
Bona on women:    Historically brunettes. However, there is a blonde who works on the check-out at the local store. She might change things………
Best bike day:  Grand Raid Cristalp. If you like endurance events you must do this race. It is the ultimate. You will not be able to walk after, and the sight of a bike will make you physically ill for a day or two after, but it is worth it.
Worst Bike Day: The day my Yeti ASR was stolen from my flat.- Gutted.
What am I like?:    I’m the kind of guy that you can take home to meet your mother knowing I’ll mind my p’s and q’s. I will be the very definition of politeness, hold those doors open, drink her tea and pass complements on her great cake and cookies. But when your mother isn’t around……..well, ask that blonde.
