    My Mission One 27.5

    Just got this 2 days ago via a pro deal. Love it so far was a bit worried about the chain stay length being so long. But I have no issues getting the front end up and it feels nimble in turns. Very comfortable position in the cockpit too.

    I am dieing to take it on some rocky trails but it has been pouring rain the last two days.

    I wasn't nuts about the color of the One with the pictures I saw on the net and the pictures I sent don't do it justice. Its more of a black pearl color then a blue.

    They are Kenda Nevegal with the sticky compound. When I had them in the house and rolling on the hard floor you could actually here it sticking to the ground.

    Finally got it out on the trail today. It climbs pretty damn well and is really grippy on the turns. Got a little bit of air today but have to get a little more comfortable with everything. It really rips on the downhill sections can't even feel the bumps.

    Do you mind weighing it? I was guessing it would be low 30s

    Ill break out the scale tomorrow. My cannondale trail 6 hard tail weighs about 32-33 pounds and this bike is equal or less than what lifting that bike feels like.

    Came out to about 31 pounds if I put it on the scale vertically.

    Which Fox fork comes with Your Mission 1.0. Is it the Fox 34 160mm? I've seen conflicting specs online. Thought you could clarify it for me. Thanks.

    Hey guys I'm in the same boat. My Mision 1.0 won't be here til Thursday, but I REALLY wondering what fork it comes with. According to Fox's website, the Fox Float 32 is only available in 100, 120 and 140mm for the 27.5 wheel. I hope it arrives with the 34 with 160mm... Anybody out there have one yet that can confirm?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Be interesting to get a nice set of tubeless wheels and see how much weight you drop. Those AM280 wheels are pretty hefty.

    Can the two of you who received your new missions answer a question for me?

    Where the internal cable routing for the shifter enters through the frame on the left, do you have a rubber grommet type thing that the cable housing slides into that is attached to the frame? Mine does not but I noticed as the cable housing exits the bottom of the frame there is in fact one of these rubber grommets that the cable housing slides through.

    I don't know if there isn't supposed to be one at the top or they forgot to put it on when packaging my bike.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    I just looked and mine is the same as yours. I have the plastic grommet on the bottom, but not on the top. Guess it's normal?

    Yea must be, not a big deal. Also did you get a little envelope labeled parts with yours? I got one but it was empty not sure what was supposed to be in there haha.

    Yeah I did and it was empty too. I did have a spare derailleur hangar ziptied to the rear of the bike though. That was the only extra parts I had.

    I just registered it has a 2014 mission. I kinda figure all they really need to know is the serial number and your name.

    Yeah the wheels are pretty heavy. I just kept the wheels and put on some Spec Purgatory Grids. Seems to have good grip and they are stiffer than the Kendas that came on the bike.

    I will say that the wheels material is very soft. I barely hit a rock on the side of the rim and it blew the tubeless seal because of a small dent.

    Only come here to show us the parts together. The missing one is the front tyre, it don't comes yet. I'm very happy with that build. The frame is amazing beauty. Eye candy at last.

    I have the Mission 2 and the wheels and brakes are the first thing to go. I upgraded to Charger Pro Sl Wheels and Stroker Ace Brakes.

    I wanted the Mission Pro, but didn't want to wait until October, so I went with the 2 and started upgrading.

    I was going to say brakes but I just looked and they used SRAM brakes on the mission 2, ehhhh. They should have went shimano there, their brakes hold up really well.

    The shimano's that came on my mission one are actually pretty awesome. Thats weird they did that.

    One thing I dont like about these bikes is the FSA Headset, there is not a secondary seal between the cup and crown race. Replaced mine with a cane creek.

    Absolutely-- I had Shimano's on my 2012 Sortie 3 and they were awesome. I will dive into the headset when I upgrade the forks ( not a fan so far ). THanx for the head ups on that!

    Here is my my firsts impressions about the Mission Pro 27.5Ē:

    The bike is monstrously live! And think its a very capable bike, that encourage you against trail hazardous parts. Test some technical climbs and you need to change rear shock to Trail ou Climb mode, because some pedal hits can occur. The bike is very smooth n transitions and stay grounded do the ground if you like to rolling through the things. Personally, I prefer jumping, and you donít get disappointed on that bike.

    My initial impressions are very very good. Only time can say what to do next. Itís about me now, the bike its only waiting the rider improve.

    Wheels: Iím using SRAM Roam 50 and can confirm thats a really nice wheel. Itís on stiff side, with a very silent hub (you simple canít rear the bike if your arenít jump things). In combination with Schwalbe Hans Dampf and Rock Razor, the system pedaling with low rolling resistance, but not only that. In rock sections you feel the rear pass through rocks with ease. Iím still working to find out a good tire pressure.

    Headset: change the original FSA to Cane Creek, fits really well and more robust. Think that its last forever (or so).

    Frame: only the rear break cable is outside the frame. Droper and rear derailleur inside. Use the bottom frame hole to pass rear derailleur and crank side frame hole to dropper. Nice and clean with space to car rack.

    Well, thats my little contribution.
