The stepthrough version of this well-equipped city electric bike offers the rider a comfortable and 'clean' feeling ride. As always with Gazelle electric bikes, the comfort factor is high, and with the sporty 'Performance' motor, pulling away at traffic lights or uphill is sharp and efficient.
E-bike manufacturers have been very clever putting the Bosch 'Performance' motor into these city-style electric bikes. Having the uphill punch of the Performance motor is a real delight.
In theory, the higher torque motors are hungrier for electricity than the 'Active' motor, which is normally seen on city e-bikes. However, this doesn't seem to matter on e-bikes like the Medeo. The Medeo is relatively lightweight for an e-bike in its class, the gearing is very good, and the whole thing rolls along very well thanks to the Big Apple tyres and 28" wheels. This all means that once your momentum is up, battery efficiency can be extremely high, so long as you're in the right gear. You should find that you still get high mileage from this bike - most riders will never run out of juice before the ride ends.
Shimano Acera 9-speed derailleur gears offer smooth transmission of power.

About the Gazelle brand
Over the course of 125 years, Royal Dutch Gazelle has grown from a small two-man business selling three bicycles into the biggest Dutch bicycle brand selling over 250,000 bicycles a year. This makes Gazelle the market leader in the Netherlands and the bikes are still assembled in the original Gazelle factory in Dieren. They are very proud of their “Royal” title, which was awarded to them by Princess Margriet in honour of their 100th anniversary in 1992.
Gazelle produce stunning, quality bicycles that are as light and comfortable possible. Their mission is to make cycling fun and easy for everyone. That’s why they keep pushing the boundaries on smart Dutch design and technical innovations.
