Peter has redone the store on his website and it now allows for reviews. I feel we should show our support with reviews of the DiSsent frame reviews or other Misfit products.

I feel Peter should offer a team jersey to the first review or best, although I'm strongly leaning towards the first even though it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact mine was the first.

hmmm i have been debating on ordering one of the kits he offers ... just not sure about the duty tax or whatever it is for shipping into the US ... or how the bike compares to say a Kona Unit or a Redline Monocog 29er flight

hmmm just had a look at the site and they don't have the kits on there any longer ...

Just finished my build...

I've got about 8 miles on it around the neighborhood hard pack snow. I love the feel/fit of this bike. Can't wait to hit the trails when the two feet of snow melts.

Sweet! Please let us know how well the Mountain Kings work. Did you know the weight of the tires?

I guess I should add a picture too!

I really like the looks of these bikes. I've always been a sucker for flat black.

Might be trying to get my 5'2" mom on one of these soon too.

Awesome looking bikes, all of these are pretty sweet. I may be able to hit a trail this weekend to give you an update on the tires. They were great on the hard pack for sure. I expect them to even be better on dirt!

I can't help but feel somewhat responsible for bringing GT and no gears together or maybe it's just coincidental conspiracy. But I have found my true soulmate in the diSSent and wanted all to know so I pledged my love to anyone who would listen. Now I sit and wait to hear the sentiments of others who are of much knowledge than myself. Man do I need to get a life.....Thank you Peter for doing what you do best (listening to endless babble).

Tried to Ride but no can do!

Tried to ride today, but just wasn't going to happen. Way to messy from the 50 degree temps. Messy is an understatement, actually unridable is more like it. So still not much to say about the tires...I'm sure I'm going to be happy with them though. The bike is still a solid A++.
