    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?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like Rays indoor bike park in Ohio.

    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 i had a dollar for every time a Russian School (girl) showed up at the front door unannounced...

    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.
    Edit: (current is True Temper and 900 usd)

    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!
