Metropolitan

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. Rohloff or Shimano Alfine hub gears are smooth and protect everything from the weather and for clean quiet and dry transmission there is the option of Gates Carbon belt drive. Also now available with Pinion Drive. 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. 

The Metropolitan Xpress is the version with the Pinion gearbox. With up to 18 gears it delivers a huge gear spectrum with a very good range of gear ratios, and is perfect for long-distance touring. The central positioning of the transmission provides a well balanced bike and therefore improves handling over heavy gear hubs.
