    My Dissent

    Alright here is mine, it's better then reviews I read about it! I just don't want to many folks here in FLorida to get them and start beating my ass. I rather keep on passing 26ers LOL singlespeedcult.com Hell Yeah! Mine is so Murdered out damn it, no bling aside from the gold chain that had to be. I just ordered some easton XC ones wheelset for this bike and should put the bike at about 21 to 22 pounds. Love this ride!

    typically speaking you are looking for 20mm more.
    if the 90mm is a little on the short side for the frame (ie even with a flat or riser) then you may need a 120, otherwise, 110.

    if you want to swap the FU for the NU (flat) send me an email. peter@misfitpsycles.com

    I have a question for some of you guys, I am not that much of a weight freak but whats the weight some of you have on the dissent? The only thing I think is really heavy on mine is the saint cranks but they are so smooth they stay. The bike feels like its 24 or so pounds I was wondering what some of you have gotten them down to?

    Down Hill Snow Ball Race

    Update on the Mountain Kings...very tight! I did my first ever down hill snow race today and they stuck like glue. I not only won the event but I beat the time of the guy who won the studded division. Now that's cool, no disrespect to the studded division, just exited to get a race under my belt with my new build...cant say enough about these tires and my Misfit!

    To answer Badpichu question, my bike weighs 23.5lbs. I'm going tubeless soon, so that should drop more weight off of it. I ride a large frame. In this picture, I have regular pedals on it for this type of race which is not what I usually use. I'm hoping that once I go tubeless the weight will be around 22-23lbs.

    Just under 24 lbs with a Reba. I doubt I will shed much more since it doesn't really matter. Its a size Large.

    Yea i know it does not matter I was just curious. Thanks for the input though my bike seems heavier then some of yours I ordered some easton xc one wheels that are super light and very strong I hope so they claim so it will lighten and stengthen the mavic wheels I have on there the front hub is already dying after a month of use. Which really sucks!

    I just built up my medium Raw and it weighs in at around 21 pounds. That using Misfit's fork, Stylo cranks, Eggbeaters, WTB hubs, Arch rims, Avid mech brakes and Maxxis Ardent tires. I can't wait to take it out.

    I just built up a Large Raw, spent 3 hours wet sanding and polishing it and it looks schweet. My build is.....Tubeless with Kenda Karmas, Bontrager fork, ENO cranks, FU bars, Thomson stem - post, Devo saddle, DT Swiss 240's, Stan's hoops, comes in at 22lbs on the nose. I could get it in the 21lb range with a lighter Bottom bracket.

    I am looking to buy my first 29er S/S and after reading about all the offerings this one caught my eye the most. It has gotten killer reviews everywhere I have looked. I hope they will send to an APO AE address, as I am US ARMY stationed in Germany/Iraq(for 4 more months). I have a few questions on build though. I see these uniquely different bars, is there a purpose for them or just style? Can you run just a standard Monkey Lite low rise? Is it better with a rigid or suspended fork? I looking mainly for a commuter/trail bike. And I see on the site you can alter the kit, what other options are available? drive train etc... If you guys could PM me any info on this that would be awesome! I hope to be in the Misfit club soon!

    Thank You,

    I run monkey lite sl carbon on mine, i have read that the FU bars are great also. I run my rigid I used freeride lots and after maintaing equipment I welcomed the rigid ss setup with open arms. THe bike is great you will not regret it. Hope to see you back in the homeland stay safe!

    gr8xscape, would you like to sell your Thomson 110 stem? I'm using a 100 now and want to try a 110mm. Let me know if you do.

    Although this might go to his head ....I agree Peter is the man when it comes to customer service. He is always there to answer any stupid question you might have. Plus there isn't to many guys that will swap out a part for another one if your not happy with it.

    I had to make an adjustment on my new build. For some reason I lost about 25mm from my Rig to my new Misfit frame. I was in a Large Rig and went to a large Dissent frame. With that loss I felt too cramped with my FU bars. I swapped them out last night for some 17 degree Salsa Motos, I have yet to ride it but the basement ride feels good so far.

    free frame with sign up?
    sorry that program was discontinued before it started, the only reason provided by the accountant was "well that's just dumb".

    what about Misfit?
    not much, just probably the greatest single speed corporation in the world.
    or, in the least, Misfit Psycles is the uncle rico of the cycling world.

    truth be told this thread is better then any advertisement that could be written in the bowels of the Empire (except maybe for that one with axle rose and the big wheel).

    seriously, when someone reads this thread (front to back), they know...either way...yeah or nay.

    You got 3rd in the 60 miles of Oleta - on a rigid? Hats off to you my friend. I pre-road the CC#1 course in November on my rigid SS and it beat the heck out of me!

    I recognize the Cannondale guy from all the Coconut Cup races. Didn't know they had a 'team' competition in that series. I didn't hit up either of Marlon's races this Feb/Mar. Too much other stuff on the plate - though I had a team arranged for the Off-Road Tri.

    Very nice. I'm sure the Misfit had a lot to do with. You will ride stronger, add inches onto your manhood, have women and certain small furry animals attracted to you and be able to out drink your friends. All while riding a Misfit!

    The problem is a product of the "paragon" type sliding drop outs, which place the chain stays higher in relation to the rear axle than on a design with a EBB or track ends.

    I would not think I would ever see this issue as I run bigger rings and cogs than a lot of folks do, but 32 -17 or 32-18 would be pretty susceptable to doing that chain slap thing.

    Of course, you could just keep your chain in adjustment.

    I don't know,maybe that's just a crazy thought.

    Wow! How did you know? I have gerbils chasing me on trail and i though it was my good looks all the while is my bike, and my manhood could use some help Im hung like a three year old. I did have some old guy say to me if I though I was some kind of a hero cause I ride a ss rigid, i guess being harassed is part of the reason why I like it so much cause in the best vallely style Im not one to shy away from a nice confrontation!

    So I decided to send for the Team Misfit jersey since Peter claims on his site that the money goes for food. I strongly suspect the truth is its probably more for beer.

    Front


    Back


    Beer coasters that came with.



    Lastly, all the cool stickers.


    After getting all this I don't mind if Peter uses the money for beer as long as he shares!

    Uhmmmm... doesn't uniting sort of go against the un-corporate philosophy?

    That's it now... everyone go do their own thing.
