The Metropolis 3 is the most affordable bike in the range and could be your first proper dirt jumper. Rest assured, the nice price doesn't mean you will be losing out on any fun - this is one hell of an exhilarating ride. The 2021 edition gets a strong Chromoly frame that's double-butted upfront to reinforce it where most needed, mainly the headtube area. Like its sibling, the geometry is based on the high-end Decade frame used by the whole NS Bikes freeride team. The tapered headtube will let you upgrade the fork when the time comes.
*In the bicycle industry, suppliers and factories sometimes change specs without notice and state that they are "subject to change without notice". This is because bicycles are made from hundreds of parts which come from dozens of vendors. Parts are sometimes updated to the most current production generation/iteration one gets better or more current parts or a comparable part. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.
