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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bike There is little to be added to the previous comment. This is simply a great bike. The look is amazing and the quality of the bike parts is high. It is so much fun riding my Metropolis. It is pretty light weight compared to a BMX bike. CRC shipped in time and I was ready to hit the dirt park within 30 minutes after opening the package. All in all this bike is a steal. I would buy it again. 12 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing bike I got this bike a couple of weeks ago to replace my transition Vagrant I was using for doing dirt jumps. The difference is simply stunning. Not only is the bike light with quality parts, but the geometry really makes everything much better. It feels very stable in the air and gives me tons of confidence to even ride out of jumps that I mess up. Knowing that the bike is not the limiting factor I can really push myself and progression has been amazing. Highly recommended, also for its stunning looks. Delivery was also top notch with CRC doing a final assembly check on the bike. Aside from a set of misplaced pedals, that CRC solved admirably, this bike is really ready to roll straight out of the box. Recommended 05 March 2013
