NS Bikes Metropolis 3 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 3 is built on a solid NS frame and fitted with high end NS / Octane One aftermarket parts in the cockpit, and at this price level this is really something exceptional. Our aim was to make an bike accessible to everyone and offer 100% of the function that high end bikes have, with the only compromise being slightly higher weight. But actually - you can make that up for free - just eat less and work out more! The 2013 Metropolis 3 comes with a new fork. We spec’d the RST Dirt RA fork with 100mm of travel as it is a great combination of value vs. functionality. The bike now has a disc brake in the rear instead of the v-brakes (front disc brake is gone but that is usually removed by the rider anyway). And one more cool upgrade - the tires have been changed to the grippy Kenda Small Block 8!
