    Yep, considering a second one too. A one by nine and a totally different set up. My justification to the wife will be that I need to get some use out of the rear derailleur threaded dropout I bought when I picked mine up. Think she will take the bait?

    one of the many benefits of being a Banal Empire over a simple company.

    often times it is enough to simply think of an idea.

    if the price differential doesn't phase you, then believe it or not the decision will get easier real soon.

    that RAW 19 beside the (Fe) is the LAST unpaid RAW 19 for 60-90 days.
    there are only 6 black 19's left (again 60-90 days).
    17 (medium) inventory isn't much better.

    delivery on the (Fe) could be 30 days for the GP (unless the pre-sale exceeds first run).

    pricing and tubing details will be confirmed after Sea Otter.

    What is a medium FE frame weighing it at? How do you like the ride difference over the AL frames you have? I was thinking about building up another SIR9 but this has peaked my interest.

    4lb 5.8oz for the LARGE.
    it will be a week or three before i weigh a MEDIUM.
    suffice it to say, less then that.
    the tubing is true temper plat OX and true temper Verus HT for the chain stays (top tube aircraft 4130).

    the ride difference is still being established, but, any deviance (aside from possible improvement) won't be tolerated.

    from an attribute and digitary standpoint...the ride looks like we may be able to improve on perfection.

    HERE is a summary of the 'program'
    and in the next 24 there will be an update detailing the actual comparison (ride tests).

    *KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A PRODUCT THAT WILL SELL FOR >2x THE CURRENT diSSent (Al)...it WILL ride as such.

    the Empire is enjoying this project, with some trepidation (see below).
    the diSSent (Al) will remain the go-to frame and will stay a very viable class leading monstrosity...at no time should the Fe and Al be considered interchangeable...same pedigree, different markets.

    that said;
    acquisitions and permutations are being set forth for immediate consideration...
    dissent-fe-tt.jpg
    a press release on the actuals will follow.
    it's something our PR department said we should do, to make us more popular with the not-so-main-stream kids.
    i'll try to get to that while I am traveling first class on the LearPsycle to CA.

    essentially;
    choice of 3+- powder coat colours (gloss black, matt black and regular black - black black was suggested but the redundancy was stupidly dumb).
    initially, 2 sizes ONLY Medium/Large (only ones with testing completed)
    first batch of 10 is being booked (unofficially now) but will be public later today (only 5 spots remaining).
    Delivery May 15+-

    subsequent batches will be comprised of production based numbers and inventoried...based on sales.

    if necessary a waiting list will be established and rolled into the first release - guaranteeing all that want, will get.

    Having had a chance to sneak peak this in person, I can testify to its sexyness and the craftsman ship that went into the frame.

    Dear Lord...

    I'm still in the growing ranks of the unemployed up here in Canada; getting one of the True North Misfits seriously has me considering a life of petty crime. Alternatively, I suppose I could hit up teenager hot spots collecting their empties...

    I don't know who to thank, Peter or Hugh, but that Misfit(Fe) is the real MoFo deal!

    I just got back from the SeaOtter and got to throw my leg over one. Its the first and only 29er that ever felt right??? Took a few hits on the Dirt jumps and a few laps of the pump track. The thing even flew well with the unconventional bars? I know thats not its intended purpose but it flat out ripped. It was cool shooting the **** with ya Peter. Oh ya, the proto looks killer too. Nice weather, fun bikes and good people.........rock on.
    Enjoy every ride!

    Beauty! I've been lucky enough to ride mine the last 2 days in beautiful spring weather. I'm really loving this bike so far. 3 rides, one on my local back door loop, and 2 kick-A rides on Cape Cod. Did a long swoopy, smooth xc loop at Otis AFB yesterday and then a guided tour of tight techy singletrack in Yarmouth. I have had a blast. I think the things that really stand out for me (compared to my last 29er, which will remain nameless to protect the innocent, it was inexpensive steel with sliders) are the increased standover (I'm just shy of 5'9"), the lower seat (more laidback seat angle and slightly lower BB), the stiffness, and the lightness. I couldn't put my foot down while seated on my last 29er (it was an 18" frame), and in retrospect I felt way high when cornering, it was hard to lean into turns. Problem solved with the Misfit. I can just get my tiptoe down while seated, enough to stabilize myself on flat ground. I did notice that I whacked my bashguard on a log I used to clear with my old 29er. But its still higher up than my 26er, and more than worth the tradeoff IMO.

    It just feels so much faster, stiffer, and tighter than my last bike. So much fun. I'll stop now to make it easier on Unitedweride. Hang in there, I respect the hell out of every American serving in that country. (maybe not the best phrasing but you get my idea)

    I only have one ride on my Misfit, but honestly, it felt right from the very beginning. What is most impressive is the handling. It is closer to a 26er than I would have expected. But then I am also very adaptable and I can switch between my bikes and feel at home within minutes.

    I have spent some time on quite a few 29ers (superflys, Niners, customs) and yes they all pedaled like a bike but to me the geo just felt wrong ( for my liking) Im not brown noseing Peter or anything, I just was really impressed by how good it felt. Very 26ish but the low bottom bracket feel just shined. Only gripe is my forward foot gets pretty close to the front tire. But I hear that is common with 29ers. Im a picky SOB when it comes to how my bikes feel and I had that "wow" feeling in just my short time thrashing it. Is a 29er the right bike for me? well......it has its place and when the time comes to replace my xc bike, its on the top of my list.
    Enjoy every ride!

    Its all good man, I just know by reading all the killer things you guys say about the diSSent I made the right choice!! Peter is an awesome guy to deal with! All I need is wheels and tires the finsih the package. Here is my build so far

    19in Raw AL frame
    Misfit fork
    Misfit Stem(silver)
    Misfit seatpost(silver)
    CK headset(black)
    Hope seat collar (black)
    Easton Carbon MonkeyLite
    Ergon Grips
    Terry Fly Ti Saddle
    RF Silver Evolve cranks w/ bb
    BlackSpire 33t
    KMC 710SL chain
    Surly cog 20t
    Avid Mechs 160mm
    Alligator I-Links(black)
    Tires??
    Wheels, gonna go Flows with either Hopes, CK's, or I9's

    Some of the parts I already had lying around , like the bar, saddle, headset, and others.
    Once I get a good feel for the bike I will upgrade to a Thomson post and Stem. I am going for the silver and black theme so I am going to get creative with the wheels and do alternating black and silver spokes with the opposite on the nipples and run black hubs. Not sure how it will look so might just go silver nipples and hubs with black spokes and rims. But the wheels and tires are all depending on the sale of my SC Heckler that has just collected dust the last few years due to injuries, and where I lived at FR/DH was non exisitent.

    Badpichu,

    Nice, bikes. How light is the black one with the Easton XC One wheels? Looks similar to my build and mine came very close to 20lbs.

    Ok I have enough rides on my Misfit Dissent to say that I love it. Not just flash in the pan lust, but a deep meaningful relationship. Fast, tough, light, stiff, silent (except when coasting, then the hope sounds like a table saw)

    That's a Shimano Pro fork, exactly the same as the White Bros but with different stickers and gun metal anodized aluminum bits.

    I saw one of the Lapdog Edition Misfit bikes ( with Shannon Tucker) and it looked very, very nice. It almost makes me want to join that team ... but I am an independent kind of guy.

    3 races 3 first places, thanks Misfit

    As I've stated before, man I love the feel of this bike. If any of you are on the fence when it comes to buying a MisFit, go for it. You'll love it and they're ffaasstt!!

    So far this year I've raced in 3 time trials and I've taken 1st in all three. Pretty happy about that, trying to keep the streak alive this weekend.

    So are you guys buying the frames direct from Misfit or somewhere else?
    Does Misfit get the frame out to you pretty fast?

    Also,what is the seat post and BB size?

    Dealers are starting to catch on, if you happen to have one in mind, one that might be interested in doing something more then (your) frame that would work well.

    As for direct delivery - typically stock orders ship within 24-48hrs - each one is prep'ed to order so backlogs are possible.

    BB on the diSSent (Al) is 73mm (113mm spindle)
    BB on the diSSent (Fe) is 68mm (also 113mm)

    Seatpost is 27.2mm
    Seatpost collar is 31.8mm

    That is very awesome. Congratulations! I'll be competing in my first twelve hour race in June on mine. I thought I would start with an easy one and work my way up.

    I put a 100mm manitu on my Dissent, the bike feels even more fun then with the 80mm reba, the geometry feels better at 100mm of travel anyone else try? It feels like the frame rides better with the increased head angle it even feels faster.

    In the middle. I scored one of the Speedgoat 08 Reba's that were made for Niner with the 70 to 100mm Uturn,. I run it at about 90mm. I've also found some happiness running my rebound slower than I have in the past.

    I just started riding again last July, I'm an old time BMX'r. I built my MisFit up this winter and did one down hill snow race and two cross country races so far. At Pontiac I raced 40-44 sport, 22 racers. Three weeks ago, I raced Clydesdale sport at Yankee springs TT. Getting back on the bike after 25yrs has been a lot of fun and I've caught the riding bug again. Can't believe I took such a long break...what was I thinking.

    After a ton of research over the winter time, I decided to go with a MisFit with a carbon fork, Stan Arch Rims (tubeless) with Industry nine hubs. Eno cranks, phil wood bb, and a Easton carbon bars. The geometry of the frame give this bike an awesome feel.

    How about you, do you race in Michigan? I actually live in Indiana near the Michigan border, but grew up in MI.

    It looks like I see some kind of ferrule at the TT mounted cable guides, but the housings look full length? Is there something that works with those tapered looking brazeons on the frame?

    I just figured the housing/brake line threaded through them.

    Yep, plan on doing the 24 hours of Boyne, Hanson Hills solo on the Misfit. And also Lumberjack 100 in June. I will be on the highly polished Misfit.

    Here are a few photos of mine built up. Comes in at 21 lbs on the nose. I went from a Fisher Rig to the Misfit and Love the Misfit. The bike does ROCK !! It feels much better in the single track and she loves to climb.

    3+ hours of hand sanding and polishing.

    but being such a fan you'd think you frequented frequently...

    existing frame owners and new frame purchasers can have one for 15$

    Very sweet ride! I get more excited every ride. My Misfit has challenged me to be a better rider and I have stepped up to the plate every time.

    Hey guys, newbie here. Say you bought a complete frame/set form the Empire and you got a 2.1 and a 2.3 tire.

    Which one would you put up front?

    Mucho graćas in advance.

    Built it up Thursday, took it out for a 1 hour shake down ride Friday (and was very impressed by how light & quick it felt), then Saturday put 56 miles on it racing the Highland Hex

    Junkyard dog. Seemed appropriate for a flat black frame with a death head on it. Maiden voyage of the DiSSent.

    Some changes have already been made, still tweaking the cockpit, new bars (Groovy Luvs) and seatpost since the pic was taken. Thoughts and impressions after another ride or two.

    Well, two rides so far on the DiSSent. I am still figuring it out, but Sunday I changed to some Groovy Luv bars and went to another seatpost. The cockpit feels spot on now...really fell into place.

    Some impressions compared to the KM I was riding:

    Stiffer pedaling bike. Where the KM would bog down and feel lazy, the DiSSent jumps up and accelerates.

    Good handling bike. Much better feel so far than the KM which I never could come to terms with.

    The ride is interesting. There are times I brace myself for impact on a piece of trail and I get nothing but a muted thump. Then, something I did not worry about comes along and rattles me. The back end does not feel harsh at all, but I think what is happening is the front triangle is much more rigid and that is where the shock is coming from. Worthwhile tradeoff? Time will tell.

    At some point I will add a better tubeless wheelset, a more compliant seatpost than the aluminum one that replaced the Thudbuster, and possibly a different fork long term. Maybe even save up for some Ti Groovy Luv bars.

    A few dozen rides and I will have more to say...still learning to dance with it.

    Now that I think about it, anyone have any issues with the seatpost slipping? So far, two seat posts, both move down when I ride. Very annoying. I am going to get another clamp as I am not happy with the blingy Hope one....going to try a Surly Constrictor with the wider band and close set pinch bolt.

    Still, the fit at the seat tube is a bit sloppy.

    Could your post be undersized? Have you tried using toothpaste, hairspray or Taxc Dynamic paste on it? I'm using a Woodman Deathgrip Ti with an Alpha Q Prolite post with zero issues.

    Well, they would both have to be undersized. Two posts are doing the same thing, both have been used before with no slippage in other frames.

    Toothpaste? Is that for minty fresh seatposts or does the grit help?

    The grit helps. I have used it before although not on my Misfit. The post, frame and clamp play nice together.

    You are correct my friend , I also need to thank you and juanmoretime as well. Both have you have helped me during my decision, as well as gave me some sweet items for this project, and I truly thank you for for that. I hope the shirt will still fit me I have lost a ton of weight. I will post up pics in my singlespeedcult t-shirt and complete build when I get back in a few weeks!

    I love what Peter did with the decals. Trust me, this baby getting built is on the top 5 list of things to do upon my return, the first 3 being family and then training for my Team Tri later next month. I will also be doing an12hr later in July on the diSSent so I have to get her dialed in quick! I will post pics up ASAP!!

    So does anyone run there Dissent with gears? I am looking to build a 29er as a second bike, but want some gears (I know I know), I see they have the derailleur hanger available so there must be some people out there riding with some gear selection - any feedback from those riders?

    Also can the new FE frame be built with gears?

    Cheers

    The (Al)
    A number of them are run as 1x? but there aren't guides so you have to make something up.
    Also worth note the current V2 dropout is one that runs reduced stay clearance...depending on the ratio selected there could be some stay interference.
    V3 is in production now and will increase clearance - no plans to add guides.

    The (Fe)
    The current prod'n batch will include 1 or 2 with guides for gears (these are already spoken for)...pre-order (like now) if you want one. We will NOT be stocking 1x? specific frames because extra guides on a ss look goofy and cause cancer.

    Subsequent (Fe) batches...well they MAY offer the option but you will need to wait for a batch in your size to hit the jigs...wait could be 60 days.

    Worst case you buy the stock (Fe) and a dangly hanger from Paragon yourself and makeshift the guides.

    Hope this helps.

    "corner_stuffed" - Did that shine dull/oxidize over the last three weeks or is it retaining that luster. Looks fantastic but I don't want to have to spend time polishing to maintain that shine. Black will have to do if that is the case.
