The Metropolis is a specialists tool for riding streets, in skate parks and at the dirt jumps. A bomb-proof build with everything you need and nothing that you don't. Short wheelbase (395mm)and 24" wheels make the bike ultra flickable and responsive. The bike is hand built and full of small details that most big brand bikes don't offer, such as Cro-Mo railed saddles, high end aftermarket h-bars, and wheels that are built and trued by hand. We spec'd our wide flange Coaster SS in the rear for an ultra stable wheel, a cut down PURE4130 h-bar with long cable so your bike is barspin happy.

Back in Metropolis, circuses and elephants
Where the oranges grew
Back in Metropolis nothing can ever topple us
When I'm standing with you
Bonus points if you can name the band from the Lyrics above.
