Fast-Rolling 700c Wheels
All eSPRESSO e-bikes roll-on fast-rolling 700c wheels, ideal for rides on roads, lanes and smooth tracks. Merida fit tyres with reflective sidewalls and puncture protection that will get you to your destination quickly and safely. However, their 'classic' eSPRESSO frames can also take 650B wheels if desired.
Ready to Go
The eSpresso City 300 EQ SE comes equipped with mudguards, lights, lock, rear rack and a kickstand, making them ready for anything from the moment you leave the store.
The system weight of a bike is the combined weight of bike, rider and additional luggage. The allowed system weight is 140 kg. As an e-bike is already heavier than a regular bike, and as it also makes it easier to transport larger amounts of luggage, it is imperative to certify a higher overall system weight. All MERIDA e-bikes, as well as all used componentry, go through a rigorous and e-bike specific testing schedule which mimics the higher forces and strains to guarantee the rider the highest level of safety.
Internal Cable Routing
Merida features internal cable routing on all eSPRESSO bikes. Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. Only a clever system for our internal guiding and fixing guarantees reliable and rattle free routing, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt and gives the bike a cleaner look.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc for later upgrades.

Shipping is FREE of charge on bikes (or orders containing bikes) over £499 within Mainland UK and £29.95 on orders containing bikes under £499.
We aim to ship bikes ordered before 12:00 on weekdays that same day with delivery estimated the following working day via DPD, this includes a timed hour slot and options to delay or nominate a neighbour.
Unlike many of our competitors, we only make available to purchase online bikes we actually have in stock here in our store − we don't ever remote warehouse or SIM feedstock with multiple day delays.
Furthermore, we aim to have all our bikes pre-built and available for immediate dispatch or for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our mechanics will package your bike into one of our custom-built boxes.
These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g., brakes, gear indexing etc.
Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedals (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.
