Interbike 2011: FSA Metropolis

Did you know that Full Speed Ahead (FSA) does commuter stuff? 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.

    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

    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.

    That bike doesn’t need a long cage derailleur.
