of the first electric vehicles to hit the main stream
the E-Bike, already popular in many countries around the
world, is just beginning to make and impact in North America.
Its popularity has been growing rapidly as we become more
environmentally conscious and as the price of gas and
vehicle insurance seems to perpetually increase. North
Americans are now looking for alternative transportation
solutions that are both environmentally responsible and
efficient. But there are many
more reasons to own an electric bike. Aware of this
fact we started looking at E-Bikes some time ago and we
realized that though they are a good idea
E -Bikes are not created equal.

Power Cycle - 500 Gets Top Marks on Value! A
new e-bike just got top marks on value in our test center.
Merida is a new brand on the market and first impressions
make clear the fact that Merida has checked the products
of their competitors carefully, and their construction
solutions are a few steps ahead.
The first recharging of the battery gives us an immediately
sign that there's something special. The battery and charger
are provided with their own ventilators. The electric
part of the bike is exemplary, with detector and motor
working perfectly. Switching on the switch gives a 'peep'
sound. and the indicator shows the current condition of
the battery.A small delay in starting the battery is a
good idea. The start of any ride is the heaviest phase,
and by doing it yourself, the battery saves a lot of energy.
The durability of this battery in particular is amazing,
with almost 60 km exceeding our wildest expectations.Merida
was also provides the best equipment: the carriage has
support shafts for side bags, a basket in the front, adjustable
stem and comfortable suspension seat post.
The Merida is nice and stable to ride, but a few more
centimeters between axles would be appreciated.The Powercycle
provides environmentally friendly power assisted transport,
taking the effort out of cycling, and putting the fun
back in regardless of your age! Hidden inside is the unique
smart technology. It instantly calculates the pressure
you put on the pedals and gives you twice the power to
get you started up to 5 m.p.h, and then eases back to
equal your power through to 15 m.p.h There is now even
a fully powered option, which will power you along with
no effort at all!
Merida are continually developing the bike, working with
leading Japanese electronics companies and European stylists.Making
the bike is the easy bit, Merida make 1,200,000 top end
bikes per year for some of the best brands in the world.The
electronics are the key to success. Merida acquired a
specialist battery manufacturer to develop the best possible
technology. The Powercycle now has an optional Nickel
Metal Hydride battery, similar to the technology used
in mobile phones.
The independent Finnish magazine Tekniikan Maailma (Technique
World) did an indepth examination of the four leading
electric bikes. This bike was the winner.
Merida -500 also won Green Works
Best Value Award.
When Eco Wheels test center got our hands on one to test
we were equally impressed and awarded a rare Five Star
rating to this bike.
A Fun Bike with great technology and an even better price!
