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!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very good buy I've had the bike a week now and I love it, its light weight and strong, flows really well round a pump track and floats over jumps, looks great and feels great to ride. the only down side I have to the bike is the forks they put on it, I've put the pre-load to the hardest and when I ride its a bit soft. The brake could be a lot better too, 23 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent! such a great bike, handles great! i love the ratio, I use this for downhilling sometimes and it handles like a beast on the trails then when it come to dh jumps it flys over them like a hawk, then to dirt jumps, easy to tail whip, flip, bar tuck no hander etcc I love it. just one downside is that the brake isnt that good, I've replaced it with a shimano xt hydraulic and the bike is probably the best I've had 29 June 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sehr geil für dirt Ich fahre jetzt seit einem halben jahr damit, bin noch relativer anfänger. ich find das bike spitze und ist auf jedenfall auch für leute mit einer einer körper größe von 1,90m geeignet :) Sehr zufrieden damit, nicht zu schwer nicht zu leicht Jonas 12 April 2013
