NS Bikes Metropolis 1 Bike

The Metropolis is a dedicated dirt jumping bike. You can take the Metro straight out of the box and head to Mellowpark to practice your 360 nosedives, or even go for a big backflip at a Crankworx event. If you are not planning to go so far, hit the streets and practice some off-the-bank tailwhips. The bike is ready for this kind of stuff because it has all the features of a modern pro-level dirt bike. The geometry and parts have been chosen by our top riders, therefore the build is significantly different than what you normally find in “corporate” bikes. The Metropolis 1 features loads of great parts mounted on a multi-butted NS cromoly frame We spec'd our FMB tour winning Proof handlebars, picked a special combo of lightweight tires from Kenda - in fact it's the same setup that our pro riders use. We also use a set of sealed bearing hubs by Octane One, a microdrive 25:11 drive-train, fat integrated seatpost-combo and many more cool features. There is also one big change in our flagship dirt bike for 2013. The Metro 1 now comes with the amazing Rock Shox Argyle fork that puts this bike in another league.
