    I communicated with Peter before pulling the trigger on the X frame. He confirmed that the 3" tire will fit. I have a set of Knards 29x3 mounted on a set of 44 mm Snowcat rims waiting to be mated to a new frame.

    Hoping it will arrive soon.

    Hot dog! Glad I bought the wheels and glad the hubs convert to 15/142.

    I'm hoping the X is incoming soon too, though having not heard back from Peter regarding the component options that were alluded to makes me think we still have some time before we see the frames...

    Crank upgrade question

    I am going thru upgrades to diSSent, on a bit of a budget. I am considering upgrading the Truvativ Firex cranks that came on the bike with a used pair of XT M751's, 175mm. Is this enough of an upgrade over the Truvativ's or are the M751s too old?

    Let me know if you want to sell it... I would prefer a frame that I could use a tapered fork and 142x12 rear axle but I haven't found anything I really like.

    Probably poor form, but since this seems to be the place where folks go for all things Misfit...

    ...in preparation for the incoming X (anyone hear anything recently about an updated ETA?) frame, my DiSSent AL frame is up for grabs. Medium, raw, includes CK headset (no baseplate) and Salsa Lip Lock collar. PM me if interested

    Mine has been disassembled and passed on to new convert since April. I have been stuck riding geared for three months now.

    REALLY anxiously waiting to get on my Dissent X.

    Peter help

    ...yes - any updates on ETA? June has come and gone without any word from Peter.

    I was under the impression that after ordering, there would be some contact to discuss the matched parts (headset, collar, BB I assume from the pictures), then the frame would follow?

    Where do we stand? Been a while since we got any info.

    Isnt she lovely? Here is an updated photo of my Dissent. So far I added an XT crank, Answer DH bars, grips and a Phenom saddle. Pretty kick ass bike, desperately needs brakes, wheels and a fork. Once I get a fork I can add a spacer and get my front end up an inch or so. Little by little but I am thoroughly enjoying the SS

    Been away from MTBR 29er forum for some time and just saw that much activity/excitement on the new diSSent frames. Didn't even know there's a new one. Still loving and enjoying my steed for XC trails here in FL. Took it last year to NC for huff 'n puff climbs in the Mt. Airy area. Since built, I had replaced the stripped slider bolts, replaced the crushed upper bearing on my FSA Pig Pro DH headset, and now waiting on Thomson to send a warranty clamp on my cracked faceplate!

    I saw someone selling a used medium frame. I may build one for my 13 y/o. He's growing up too fast!

    Cheers all,
    Hans

    Also anxiously awaiting my new Dissent X. Luckily I haven't yet torn down my current Dissent. I've sent a couple emails and left a VM with no response. Peter is assumably on a drunken sabbatical while the supplier is perfecting 150 stellar frames. Btw the website works fine for me but the blog seems to be down.

    I don't know about the rest of the folks that have ordered something from Peter, but I am getting close to going to knock on his door. I unfortunately stripped my Dissent to sell it to cover some of the costs of the new frame. Now most of the summer is gone and still no ride. I have emailed and called but no response. At least a post as to the status of the Dissent X would be appreciated.

    I haven't heard anything either, after some email requests for product. The April 25th comment on FB struck me as odd. 2 pre-pay deadlines after announcing the Dissent X, he still had not confirmed a builder? Dan, maybe you could call Ture North, see if they'll talk.

    I've emailed Peter, posted on the FB page, posted here and even e-mailed the folks at Linkin' Bikin' to see if anyone could provide an update. No response from Peter and Likin' Bikin' hasn't heard from him either.

    I'm not worried about NOT getting the bike, but I think an update would be fair.

    This is getting a bit peculiar. Wondering if maybe I should be more worried.

    Hi there, new posting member to MTB, but have been reading for years. I have a Small MKIV diSSent frame I am looking to sell. I need to upgrade to a medium frame. 5'5" so I am right in between most frame sizes. I also have a der. hanger with it.

    Currently set up as SS. PM me if interested and I can provide pictures! Bike is in NH.

    Thanks.
