Up for sale is my Misfit DiSSent. It is custom built with a bunch of cool stuff. It is so cool that I don't want to sell it, but if I don't pay for new axles on my old car, I might die. This bike is not cooler than being alive. Well, almost. Full Chris King purple build with SS hub, 29 front. Custom frame bag to match the contours of this sexy beast, handmade by Bolder Bikepacking out of Boulder, Colorado. Bearings are happy. Cosmetic wear.
Frame: Misfit DiSSent. Aluminum. Sliding dropouts. Welded by a human being in Canada. Currently set up with SS dropouts, comes with derailleur-compatible dropout as well. 19 inch frame size, which some mountain bike manufacturers would call a large. I'm 5'11" with a short inseam and it works for me, especially with the low standover of this top tube.
Fork: Surly ECR 29 plus rigid. Steerer tube is left plenty long. You don't have to run a 29 plus wheel and tire, but you can.
Frame bag: Bolder Bikepacking custom fitted bag, standard rugged nylon fabric, beefy zipper, velcro straps. Top front strap is relieved to accommodate a top tube bag.
Wheels: Chris King purple hubs. Rear is SS-specific. Front rim: WTB Scraper. Rear rim: WTB i25. Rims are tubeless-ready. Hand built (duh) with Sapim double butted spokes and black brass nipples.
Tires: Maxxis DHR II 2.3 rear (tubeless ready), Innova Gravity Vidar 3.0 front (not tubeless ready). Both currently set up with tubes. Doesn't it handle all stupid with different sized tires, you ask? Not unless you are stupid at handling a bike, it replies. It rides great with some extra traction and bump absorption on the front. The frame is suspension-corrected for a 90mm suspension fork. Those don't really exist, so it is set up to be flexible for an 80mm or 100mm. With the axle to crown measurement on this rigid fork and a 29 tire, the head angle is fine and it handles great.
Brakes: Avid BB7. Front rotor is 180mm, rear is 160mm. Set up with Jagwire compressionless brake housing for optimum braking response. The housing is also reflective.
Brake levers: Avid FR5.
Headset: Chris King purple with Chris King purple spacer kit. Unfortunately, I did not think to put a frame protector sticker on the back of the headset, and there is a little wear groove from the front brake housing that happened before I figured it out. New stickers are in order, since I took the old crusty ones off for pictures.
Bottom Bracket: Chris King Purple.
Crank: Truvativ Stylo 175mm. MRP bashguard.
Gearing: 32t ring, 18t rear Surly cog.
Seatpost collar and skewers: Salsa purple. It's pretty close to CK purple.
Stem: Thomson Elite X4, 31.8 mm clamp.
Seatpost: Bontrager 27.2mm zero setback. Look, sometimes you just have stuff in your parts bin.
Handlebars: BRAND NEW Truvativ Stylo 680mm.
Saddle: BRAND NEW WTB Speed Comp.
Pedals: BRAND NEW Odyssey Twisted. Can swap out for used Eggbeater 3s.
Grips: BRAND NEW ODI Rogue lock-ons.
Did I say full Chris King purple, which you can't even get anymore? I realize this build looks like nothing you could buy off the floor in a bike shop, so it will appeal to a limited, more discerning clientele. If you are reading this far, you are among them. I am happy to answer questions and send more detailed pictures of anything you want to see (on the bike, you sicko). Lowball offers, trades, requests to ship out of the country, and obvious scams will be ignored or reported, as appropriate.
