Misfit Psycles turns 10 this year, so founder Peter Keiller is celebrating by giving the people what they want.
The (very) limited edition diSSent X gets updated with all the modern features customers have supposedly been asking him for, namely a 44mm head tube, thru-axle rear and made-in-Canada quality.
The frame uses essentially the same domestically sourced tube set as the Dissent AL-C, except with a larger head tube to fit modern tapered forks. The sliding dropouts switch to 12mm thru axle compatible versions, and it’ll get (wait for it) a matte black paint job. Where it gets really special is based on when you order it…
Frames will ship with new dissent Mk.V 12mm thru axle sliders and tooled axle. For about $70-ish more, you can upgrade to the DT Swiss thru axle. The frame will fit their standard Mk.IV QR sliding dropouts, too, so you can always regress.
The frame will be made in a single small batch of up to 150 frames. If you’re among the first 20 to place an order, and you get said order in before February 15, you’ll snag the frame for just $650. You’ll also get the best collection of special prizes, namely access to an optional green anodized “X” hardware kit (headset, dropouts, top cap and special tooled seat collar). Other anniversary goodies include a t-shirt, certificate and expedited shipping.
After 20 frames or February 15, prices go up and schwag count goes down. And when they’ve sold 150 frames, that’s it. Check the website for the full pricing/ordering schedule. Production is slated to start in a couple months with delivery no later than June 1 – earlier if they sell out quickly.
Made in Surrey, BC, by the same builder that does their Dissent AL-C.
