    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.

    thanks!

    I have another question, what is the warranty on the Al?

    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.

    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$
    you're practically stealing them at that price.

    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

    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.

    Juan, I believe it did. The wife has been getting so many things in the mail. But I will double check, and thank you again! Less than a week!!!!

    "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.
