diSSent on my third 29er

Head badge
I didn't by this frame for the head badge but it does look pretty cool.  I bought this frame after years of wanting one and finally after getting the opportunity last fall to test ride one I was convinced that this is the bike for me.  Features that sealed the deal include paragon style drops, 6061 aluminum, short chain stays and wheelbase, and price.  Normally a $450 frame, there was a special for $200 off!

Frame
Not waffling between SS and Geary this time.  This is a pure SS frame, although you can get geary drops but where you would put the cables?

Glad you like the headbadge. I'm the guy who originally created it. I had an early 26" Misfit and the headbadge at the time was just flimsy metal. I loved the Misfit logo, so I made one out of cuttlebone cast pewter. I got two pourings out of the cuttlebone mold before it degraded, so I put one on my bike and sent the other to Peter as a present (he gave me a good deal on my frame). He got someone to make a real mold of the design and do a production run. Now it's on all the new Misfits. Makes me smile whenever I see one on the wild.

It's an awesome head badge. Unfortunately, I just sold my diSSent. Hopefully, there is another diSSent in my future, only this time it will be an XL and Fe.
