The Metropolitan is a low maintenance bike for everyday use and touring. 26" wheels give a comfortable ride which combined with the latest generation of high pressure tyres give you easy rolling over long distances.

Hydraulic disc brakes just work. Perfectly. This is a bike with the emphasis on comfort, reliability and efficiency.

The integrated rack reduces the number of bolts by 30% providing lower weight, increased stiffness and reliabilty. Various high quality light systems are available with the rear light cable runningtout inside the rack tube for maximum protection. The Ergo-Stop handlebar stop protects frame and cables from damage, while its ergonomic positioning eliminates the risk of injuries for knees and legs.
