    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!"

    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?

    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    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.

    Totally excellent! You need to get that bad boy built up. I have the Misfit jersey and tee. Now I need to score the single speed cult shirt. I like it.
