Gazelle (given the title Royal Dutch Gazelle by Princess Margriet in 1992) is the renowned leader in Dutch bike manufacturing since 1892. Their factory in Dieren produces over 250,000 bikes a year. From their conception to the present day, they've focused on making comfortable, safe, and stylish bikes that can be depended on daily. Furthermore, Gazelle is a forerunner in the eBike industry, early on having researched and developed the integration of this new technology with the classic, daily-riding bicycles for which they've been known for over 120 years. The result: Gazelle has a catalog of pedal assist electric bicycles that is incomparable.
The Gazelle Medeo is an excellent value for a fully featured pedal assist eBike with a Bosch mid-drive motor. Just like you'd expect from a classic Dutch bike, it has an upright riding posture, a low step-through style frame for easy mounting and dismounting, a rear rack for panniers, and full coverage fenders for riding more comfortably in wet weather. Customers who test ride the Medeo remark on how intuitive the ride is; it just rides like a normal bicycle, but feels as if there's a tailwind.
The Medeo is a Class 1 eBike, meaning it only provides motor assistance when the rider is pedaling, and will stop providing assistance when the speed reaches 20 mph. The sensation of the pedal assist is smooth, not jarring or jerky. Bosch's convenient and easy to read Purion display is mounted to the left side of the handlebars and informs the rider on details such as current speed, trip distance, and remaining battery life. From this display the rider can easily toggle the motor between the various assist modes: Eco, Tour, Sport, and Turbo. The Medeo's battery, drive unit, and display (in essence the entire eSystem) are all made by Bosch and undergo rigorous third party testing for quality.
The Medeo differs from most of our classic city bike offerings in that it has a rear derailleur and exposed rear sprocket rather than an internal gear hub. The shifter has 9 speeds with an ample gear range and the chain is covered by a chainguard, protecting your clothing from chain grease. The Medeo's brakes are a pair of Magura hydraulic rim brakes. The ride is soft and comfortable, thanks to the Medeo's 28"x1.6" Continental Ride City tires and a front suspension fork.
