As a super special prime-time follow-up to the initial raving reviews of the Misfit Psycles diSSent (Al) (at twentynineinches.com) world wide web reviewer psycloxtraordinary Guitar Ted (Real name apparently withheld to perpetuate midwestern obscurity) passed forth the Psycle-torch to Captain Bob.
FULL NEW REVIEW AT:
ORIGINAL REVIEW(S) AT:
The Captain elected a slightly different approach to Ted’s “Budget Build“…
Could this entry level rig make a quality race bike? Hmm….. So granted, I wasn’t going to go buy new high end parts to throw at this project but I would put all the good stuff on it that I have not been using. So, now we have project “Misfit Race!”
…not that the budget build was a bad idea.
No, in fact showing how one could piece together a supersonic singlespeed was a solid premise…using a minced chainring might NOT have been…
On a steep, grinding climb, I had the chain pop over a tooth on the chain ring. It is a chain ring made for a geared drivetrain, and was slightly used, so perhaps that was the suspect part.
The only exception(s) noted in the Tedview were both related to the ring and then crank arm.
While the review by Ted was pretty upstanding indeed (this entry is being typed within earshot of a nearly empty inventory report) the Captain Bob review nailed it…the SOMETHING that it is that we sell…the thing.
Assuming that you can read I shall not bore the details with your nasty mug.
Suffice to say this is one of those reviews that most closely matches the intent of intentions when this frame was thought up (using the proprietary process documented for school childrens yesterday).
Below (in no particular order) are a few of the quotes that stood out:
- Well, I guess I would have to admit that I didn’t express too much interest in the Misfit Psycles Dissent. Not much interest at all, even after seeing it at the shop where Guitar Ted works.
- I rode it around the yard and on my 3/4 mile single track that is in my back yard and thought, what’s going on here, this is aluminum? Really? Something is different here.
- I will let you know right now that this complete bike (yes, with pedals and bottle cage) weighed 22.28 lbs on the shops Ultimate digital scale. I was surprised though since it felt much lighter.
- I would have to call this frame set steel with the looks of aluminum. Yes, it is aluminum but the feel is all steel.
- In fact it’s better than most steel frames I have owned or ridden.
- I would say it’s identical to what a high end steel frame feels like.
- Much more compliant than the Jabberwocky that I no longer own.
Such a stellar review, with that we are going to end on this.
