Well here’s a great start, this is the Metropolis Patterson Transmission. It sorta reminds me of the Truvativ HammerSchmidt cranks. They have a whole line of Metropolis components available for the urban rider. This bike is a perfect example on how its equipped with the groupo. ← Previous post Next post → 3 Comments Neil September 19, 2011 at 11:35 pm It might have been worth the high price tag if it didn’t look as if had been finished by a 12 year old with a pan scourer. Hugely disappointed when I saw it in the flesh Ghost Rider September 20, 2011 at 3:36 am Any word on how this Metropolis crank WORKS? I, for one, LOVE the brushed finish…sure, the brushing could be finer-grained, but man that is a cool finish idea. Perhaps the pics do it more justice than eyeballing it in real life.
