Our bestselling commuter category, Metro returns with an updated look to go with its practical and reliable design. Designed for everyday use, a short test ride of one of these benchmark commuter bikes will confirm why the Metro category is so popular. New to the range for 2017 is the addition of the Tensor. Designed around the standard Metro frame platform, Tensor is the bells and whistles version. Specified with a sleek new rack and mudguards, Tensor is perfect for those rainy morning commutes. It doesn't stop there however, as the Tensor also comes with front and rear AXA dynamo lights, both powered by a high quality Shimano dynamo hub. A kickstand and chain cover top off what could be our most complete package to date. Practical, reliable and stylish. A Ridgeback Metro is the perfect bikes to get you from A to B.
