    Nope, a little soap and water and she cleans up nice. I have ran some polish over it just to give it a little sparkle...but that was just to impress my riding buddies

    I just got done doing the 24 hours of Boyne Mountain (solo) on the Dissent and can't belive how great it handles in the single track, and again...she love to climb. I'm so happy with this frame. I did have one issue, had to stop at around 3:00 this am and adjust the slider. The right side slide up a little and was giving me some mad chain slap. Other than that the bike was PERFECT !!!!! I'm curious to see what the new slider will look like.

    Peter, does anyone run a type of locking system to keep the sliders from moving ??

    The diSSent frame arrived this morning! I was just putting the coffee on, and I heard the UPS truck roll up. Now I just need the rest of the parts to show...

    i was once debating weather i wanted this or the vassago bandersnatch which is geared specific. i think i have decided on the misfit, it suits my style much better, i like the fact i can run gears or ss. i would really like to run it geared, probably 2x9 or new XX 2x10.

    so my question is this, whoever is running their diSSent geared, are you able to run a full range of gears? i know this bike is designed as a SS but i dont have the dicipline yet to run single yet. im 6'4'' so looking at the XL, but may do the large for greater standover.

    any insight would be appreciated

    the build is going to look like this thus far

    misfit diSSent frame black
    chris king polished headset
    fox fork (the black one, still trying to source)
    i9 wheels laced to edge rims, polished
    hope tech x2 brakes (possible carbon levers?)
    raceface next crank
    chris king polished bb
    sram xo rear
    sram pg990 cassette
    sram xx front
    kmc x9sl chain
    thompson stem and post polished
    spec bg saddle
    esi chunky grips
    conti trailking tires

    most high-zoot diSSent ever?

    That said... what are conti trailking tires? They make mountain king, race king, and speed king tires, no trailking. the first two are great, but the speed kings suck.

    First I'll start by telling you that XL is for you as ihe standover is a plenty and at 6'4" I'd think you would qualify. Second is forget all those silly gears I say try SS first then if it truely not for you then go geared but my guess is you won't. Don't get too caught up in all the blingy **** because it all breaks in time.Good handbuilt wheels,sturdy crankset and servicable brakes will bring miles of smiles

    Hey Mike, I'm 6'4" too and the XL is perfect. You sit in the diSSent, not on top, so the XL will feel just right for your size.

    And I have to third the gear opinion. Make it SS and if you just have to put shifters on it, then get the adapter kit.

    so your saying drop a dues for the crank, do some kings laced up to some sun equalizers (the welded ones) and whats wrong with hope? with my experience they are very serviceable and the craftmanship is top notch.

    6'2" and XL is good for me, but i'm not proportionally challenged like some other same-heighters are. I bought a der. hanger, just in case, but after 6+ months on the diSSent, I know it's never going on...

    Ooops! I knew I forgot something. Truth be told, I was just messing around in front of my house making sure that all the bolts were tight, etc. I can say this - it feels different than I thought. It's a really smooth ride, but still quite solid. Definitely not as jarring as my Unibomber. Some of that smoothness is attributable to the CarbonCycles fork, but some will be due to the big floppy wheels and 20 psi in the tires.

    I did the usual on/off curb huck thing, the tight turn test, the I-can't-wheelie-but-I'm-going-to-try-it-anyway test. I'll probably take it with me tonight to do some trail maintenance and give it a dirt run then.

    I haven't wanted a frame so bad since I wanted and S&M Mad Dog when I was 12. Hopefully this will be my over the winter project, but I'm not sure if I can wait that long...

    I got called out tonight by some guys I was building trail with.
    "So, what gear are you running on your Misfit?"
    "Um, 32x20, but it's too high - I need a 32x22."
    [laughter]
    "No way, 32x20 is a perfect gear for the trails around here."
    "I guess I need to man up..."
    "You DO need to man up!"

    Oi...

    I rode the same and found it to be the perfect gear for my local trails. I did man up when I ordered my Boone ring and went 33. It's louder than 10.

    r1Gel- How wide are the rims you have and how much clearance do you have with the stouts? Also what is your current Chainstay length with that tire?

    Has anyone tried a Misfit with Rampages (or tire of similar width) on Kris Holms, Salsa Semi's, or Salsa Gordos?

    "Um, 32x20, but it's too high - I need a 32x22."
    [laughter]
    "No way, 32x20 is a perfect gear for the trails around here."
    "I guess I need to man up..."
    "You DO need to man up!"

    Oi...

    dude...show those fools who is boss & put a 18 or a 19 on the back.

    Yup, morning of the race I went to put in a new rear pad for the black Marta's I had on there, and the retaining pin that holds the pads in snapped at the thread the moment I tried to loosen it with the 2mm hex key. No way I could have drilled out the rest of the pin in time so I had to pull the brake off my Surly for the time being.

    Badpichu,

    Congratulations on the new frame. But we would love a ride report. Better yet, how does it compare to the Alu frame. Be honest now.

    Its lighter and about half inch smaller in the wheel base. Its nice and stout I love the feel of it but I have not really roughed it up yet as you can see.

    Are those two separate tubes welded together at that "break" in the top tube or is it one continuous tube that was "kinked?"

    Misfit is going to have to pay me for all the Marketing I am doing! Thanks rpinata I have had some nice bikes before as far as looks this is by far the nicest. All of our trails here are underwater right now but as soon as I get it out on the trails I will give an update on the ride. But just from the test rides around the hood I can tell you the bike feels unreal.

    Alright I took out the Fe for some ST and I was asked to compare it to the Dissent. First of all let me say that this is the most expensive bike I have ever owned, frame wise. With that in mind I had high expectations, so here it goes. Right away I noticed the cornering being super responsive I found myself leaning the bike more then a normal 29er so it corners very well. I did not open it up as much as I would riding with faster folks but I was at the top of my gear faster then any other ss I have ridden at 32x18 the bike is very quick almost 26" feeling. The technical riding is probably one of the things I noticed stood out the most, the bike carries over things super fast. Climbing I can't compare it to anything it just goes up. The strangest thing about the frame is that the tubing looks small in comparison to the dissent but ones riding its stiffer then the AL frame much to my surprise. With the advantage of the very smooth ride. I took a few drops and it just takes the edge off. There is no comparison with the Dissent, its a different beast. I think it rides like a bike at this price range should. I have ridden steel frames before hence I bought this very quickly after they started making them. You wont be sorry if you drop the dough on the FE IMHO.

    Thanks for the review. It sounds like you love the Fe frame, but I could be wrong.

    But I am not sure I understand how it can be that much different from the Alu frame. I could understand the Fe being able to provide a more dampened ride, perhaps better for endurace races. But I cannot see how it could be stiffer or more responsive. Mind you, I am 160 lbs and rider weight is the largest influence on bike characteristics, by far. So my experience riding Fe (inbred), Alu (diSSent) and CF (Superfly) is perhaps a little different. I see the subtle difference, but I find I can adapt to each bike quickly and those subtle differences quickly dissapear. But that is just my experience.

    But I am still very intrigued by the Fe frame.

    The fact that it feels stiffer surprised me I did not expect it at all, the handling being better for the most part in my opinion is because of the frame being more stout its easier to handle more snapy. There is a difference to me perhaps to someone else not as dramatic, but hell I am super anal when it comes to setting up my bike. Perhaps you need to try one for yourself! haha

    Dude, he's not serious or maybe he is. Thanks for the ride report. Fe would be cool but I'm holding out for a titanium version. No Peter that's not a hint but my hand is raised and I'm almost peeing on myself if you need a tester.

    I'd like to hear more about those subtle difference in ride quality between those three frames. Which one has the most ride compliance ie. all day epic rides?

    1-bar: I'd like to hear more about those subtle difference in ride quality between those three frames

    I find few difference between Fe and Alu. Yes Alu is stiffer with almost no give (if you are light), so on a rigid bike you will feel it after a long ride. But for a light rider, a "stout" Fe rame will also be fairly stiff. It may have a bit more lateral flex.

    My opinion is that tire inflation is ultimately going to decide what vertical complaince you will have. The frame is far more subtle, thus harder to feel its compliance. Laterally Fe will flex nicely when out of the saddle, but Fe will also flex back and if you are light you can have a nice swing, which feel quite good.

    CF is the best dampening material, CF makes a frame feel "lifeless", but in a good way. With font suspension (like on my Superfly) it becomes a much more forgiving ride than my rigid bikes. For long endurance rides, I would prefer CF on a rigid setup.

    the diSSent (Fe) and the Inbred (also called Fe by Serious) are two very different rides.
    i would not consider the ride quality (feel) to be close.
    truth is i do not like the feel of 'chromoly' for most xc (singlespeed in particular) applications.

    what some call compliant I call noodley.
    your results may vary.

    the opportunity has come and gone for me to ride the (Fe) for a number of endurance events, including this past weeks Breck Epic.



    i am hesitant to commit to a review as it compares to one another (Al to Fe).
    i just don't think that it's fair...that said the question comes up several times a day.

    the geometry reigns true (from the Al to the Fe) and i believe most of the positive ride characteristics do as well...yes i think the aluminum frame rides better then a steel frame of similar value.

    without going into a long drawn out discussion there are some differences in frame 'stiffness' between the two.
    strangely enough the (Fe) DID end up being slightly more stiff in the rear then the (Al). the power transfer is excellent and an unanticipated bonus. chainstay stiffness was the biggest single concern i had when we started material and tube selection for this 'project'. i work far too hard to turn the pedals to have that effort zapped up by the frame.

    the front triangle is NOT as stiff on the (Fe) as it is on the (Al). obviously.
    plat OX tubes are drastically smaller then those on the (Al) and the need for gusseting and support is greatly reduced.

    the result is a much more BALANCED frame in terms of compliance AND weight distribution.

    it is my personal and highly biased opinion that the diSSent (Fe) is great (the original Al) made better.

    on a budget go with the (Al).
    looking to spend a few more, like steel or want domestic...buy the (Fe)...if you can get one...

    Thanks for explaining that I knew I felt the frame being pretty stiff. I rode the hell out of it today on two different trails and the thing just goes and goes, It needs improvement on the engine department, I will work on that. I love the damn thing.

    Sorry it took so long, Family and Vacation and work took priority, So here she is, I am finally in the club, I need to ride it some more to give an accurate report and work out all the small adjustments for comfort.





    Thank You Peter, Juan, GLG, badpichu, and others for giving me the advice to get this rig, and for all the help during the whole process!!

    So I got my first real ride in, about 2 1/2 hrs, and yes I was smiling and covered in some mud!!! Man this bike ride likes a dream, now granted it is my 1st true ride on it, but I was not dissapointed! It tracks a line very fast, it is super stable, climbs like a goat, and I just had plain fun. My only noticeable negatives were the chain slap when I hit the rough stuff(rock gardens and such), and this is no fault of the bike at all but man I got a good arm work out from the front being rigid. Nothing bad, It has been years since I have been on the trail, so I have to get my body used to it again. I am liking rigid so far, but might give the front some cushion down the road. And I must say with all confidence that all the guys in my group were drooling and giving much love to the UnitedWeRide diSSent. So Peter you might be getting some Military orders from Germany!! More to follow!

    Theran - the bike looks great!

    With the design of the chainstay - I can see how you might get a little chain slap, though if the chain is new, it'll stretch so you'll have to adjust the tension after a ride or two.

    Very excellent. I keep a jumbo size Lizardskin on mine. It doesn't get much chain slap but should it I don't hear it. Plus I kind of like draping my chain on it instead of the bare stay.

    Did a 2.5 hour ride myself yesterday. Took a half a vacation day to celebrate Better Friday. Its better to be riding your mountain bike then working, better Friday!

    Got in another real ride on my diSSent tonight. I'm liking this bike more and more. The handling is just awesome, especially at medium speeds on twisty stuff. I'm still getting used to the FU2 bar. When I'm climbing really steep stuff, it feels quite narrow, and I don't feel like I'm getting as much leverage as I could be. At the same time, it rocks on the flats and descents! I probably need to reduce the stem height a bit, as it's pretty high. I also have to give mad props to the WTB Stout 2.3 tires. They are fargin' awesome! Grip well, pedal nice at 30 psi.

    The Unibomber is definitely for sale.

    Well I have a long term ride report for the diSSent, AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! I just recently competed in Schlaflos im Sattel 2009 (Sleepless in the Sadlle) It is an all night bike race on a 11k (6.9m) loop with mostly climbing, as many laps as you can spin from 2100 until 0600, at the same time being one huge party. The course was made for SS action!! I was the only Misfit at the party which was good because everyone was asking questions!! So Peter you might be getting some traffic! I love this bike, and without question I definitely made the right choice!! This bike just flat out ROCKS on the climbs, the turns, tight stuff, rough stuff(as long as you have strong arms for the rigid), hec this bike just does it all!! I am definitely hooked, and badpichu you will be getting some traffic for the Cult, everyone was asking about the shirt I was rockin!! If you guys want to expierience German SS action you will have to come do this event it is AWESOME!! I will have to get some Misfit stuff and SScult stuff to put the word out next year more for you guys!! And I am working on something for my charity site www.united-we-ride.com as well!

    Sweet pic! Love the tats - based on those, I'll assume that the "Ramstein" is the German rock band, not the air base Spent many a night listening to Ramstein while working late nights in Pakistan.....doing things........

    Actually it is the Air Base, it is www.theracc.com it is the Ramstein Area Cycling Club. I plan to get some new artwork here soon! Here is a group pic of us @ SiS and I found a shot of the diSSent carrying my butt on the course!

    I've been on my Misfit for a year now and it just doesn't get any better. I did a climb on Sunday that had me passing 5 guys pushing their full suspension bikes up the climb. It sure made me feel great!

    I see you also have the newer frame version with the revised chainstays for the chain slap issue.

    I thought Peter said the new Frame version would be out late October to accommodate
    1X9 users that addressed the chain slap and use of all gears although SS is a charm.

    I might be wrong, but if you look at the angle of the sliders it looks different than my frame. So please forgive me if I am, I dont want to get something started over false information.

    the frame in question is a 15".
    due to stock and production they STAYED with the v1 dropout.
    little less slide then v2 but better angle for 1x9 use...

    i'll document the differences one day...cause it really does matter...without 'model-years' its easy to have slight alterations and changes confuse.

    Cool beans! - So will a current Medium/Lg frame run the gears 1 thru 9 with no problem? or is there a design truly in-place to raise the angle of the dropout to improve shifting clearance. I'm waiting on this confirmation before I buy since I already have a single speed build, unfortunately with another brand. However as long as I am on the trail, I suppose life is good.

    Sorry been a real slacker. I'm sure Peter will enlighten you shortly. Dare I say it. I've been too busy with family and riding my bikes to spend much time on the internet talking about them. You can toss some 80 hour work weeks and some occasional sleep in the mix too!

    I will be on a single speed team in a famous mountain bike race that rhymes with salami again! Three of us on good bikes and one on another.
