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 2 is built on a beautiful full-cromoly NS frame with a mid-BB and integrated headset, and is fitted with a complete NS cockpit which includes the light Quark stem, a Mint handlebar and new Sam Pilgrim grips. We specd the Marzocchi DJ3 fork and gave the bike 100mm of travel for more confidence on the big stuff. Two other cool features are that the bike runs on our own custom NS rims and has a compact drivetrain. In 2012 the Metropolis 2 gets a major upgrade in the form of a sealed bearing Octane One rear hub.
