NS Bikes returns to the fold once more with its newly upgraded 2011 NS Bikes Metropolis 1 mountain bike.

NS has made some significant changes to the 2011 Metropolis, which includes a new hub in the form of an Octane One sealed front hub with 20mm while the rear has an Octane One sealed rear single speed pro hub equipped with a 11t driver. The previous crankset has also been improved as the bike is now sporting a high-end and light crankset from Salt Plus.

The spokes for the Metropolis have been changed and are black spokes with DT nipples. The bike frame itself has been fitted with an integrated seatpost clamp and gives more clearance for thicker tires.

The bike fork is a Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 1 with 100 mm travel capabilities and a 20mm axle with an alloy steer tube. The pedals are still the standard NS Aerial pedals. The new 2011 Metropolis weighs 12.2 kg without the front brake and is priced at $1400.
