Metropolitan / Metropolitan Lady

The Metropolitan is the logical realisation of a maintenance-free city and everyday bike. The integrated belt drive prevents any soiling of the fairing. The VBA (Variable Belt Adjustment) system facilitates a simple, simultaneous adjustment of the belt tension and belt line for the first time.

The integrated rack with Snap-IT® adapters reduces the number of bolts by 30% providing lower weight, increased stiffness and increased lifetime. While the adapters allow mounting any bag and accessories from the Racktime series, the rear light cable runs 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.


  • Low-maintenance and oil-free drive per Carbon Drive® belt

  • Integrated gear hub with Carbon Drive® or chain drive
  • Integrated rack with modular Snap-IT® carrier system from Racktime®
