Introduction & Features
When it comes to style and aesthetics, the Italians are amongst the best in the world, setting the latest high fashion trends as well as producing sleek and sexy super cars. Bicycles are no exception. Any discerning bike enthusiast would know about classic Italian bike brands like Colnago, Pinarello and Wilier. The new kid on the block, the Rizoma 77/011 Metropolitan Bike offers the best of both worlds: unparalleled style and cutting edge technology. It is the ultimate in style and function for the urban bike rider or commuting rider.
An immediate feeling one gets after taking a spin on this bike is just how stiff it feels-this is likely attributed by the chunky carbon tubes and virtually seamless transition of shapes on the frame. Power-transfer on the minimalist crankset is surprisingly good and the Gates system matches the sleek and futuristic feel of the bike. Apart from the slight lack of responsiveness in the steering reaction of the bike and lack of adjustability for the saddle height, everything else feels great on the Rizoma 77/011. The carbon-aluminium saddle looks deceiving-it may not look comfortable but it actually feels very ergonomic.
Overall, the Rizoma 77/011 Metropolitan Bike looks sleek and futuristic and is intended for those who really want something which stands out from the crowd (and has the pockets to do so as well). In a sense, given its unique, no seat-tube design with little adjustability for seat height, the bike chooses its rider-one must be within the range of 1.65m to 1.95m (sorry for those who are smaller-sized).
