Metropolitan / Metropolitan Lady

The Metropolitan is the logical realization of amaintenance-free bike for everyday use and for touring, and is the classic for commuters and urban cyclists. It brings everyday biking to a new level with an integrated belt drive, which makes daily biking better, simpler, and cleaner, enabling the smooth, silent riding every cyclist dreams of. The VBA system facilitates a simple, simultaneous adjustmentof the belt tension and belt line. The carrier system with Snap-IT® components reduces the number of screws by 30%, thereby lowering weight while increasing longevity and rigidity. In addition, the lightcable can be installed inside the rack tube.

The Ergo-Stop steering stop prevents the handlebar from rotating, thus protecting the gear and brake levers from bending and severing. Its ergonomic positioning and design eliminate the risk of injuries to knees and legs.
