    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.

    Twice the price and twice the bike. I would then have to assume that twice the fun? More pictures and close ups please. There are some greenbacks at my bank screaming for liberation!

    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.
    My rides:
    Lynskey Ti Pro29 SL singlespeed
    KHS Team 29
    S-Works Roubaix SL3 Dura Ace
    KHS CX 550 cyclocross

    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.
