Model Highlights
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 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.

System Weight

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.

Smart Entry

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.

Whilst we do actively try to keep on top of all the details, manufacturers do occasionally change model specifications, so anything detailed above is subject to change.

** Some stock may come with an equivalent Tektro HD-M275 hydraulic disc brake setup due to a shortage of parts from Shimano following the pandemic.

Remote Regions

You might have noticed a lot of our services are limited to MAINLAND UK, sadly this is because both our couriers either do not offer services to these regions or they charge surcharges to offer any service at all which we cannot absorb into our costs.

The good news is that for the time being at least the Royal Mail is bound by universal service so no matter where in the UK you live, if your order can be shipped with a Royal Mail service then we can offer this as we would for the rest of the country. Note however that the Royal Mail do have clauses to exclude remote regions from their delivery guarantees for Special Delivery® services.

Easy Returns

If an item doesn't fit or isn't quite what you expected then simply fill out the enclosed returns form and return your unwanted items to us within 28 days for a full refund, we'll accept orders returned to us after this period with refunds made via gift vouchers for use against future orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to cover the costs of returning items to us.

For further information please see our Refund Policy for further details.

Stock Availability

Unlike our competitors, many of which don't have a considerable proportion of the products they list online available in stock in their own warehouses, these stores depend on suppliers being able to provide products quickly on demand which in these trying times is a bit of a gamble.

For this reason, we now only sell products we have in stock and know we can provide rather than just 'SIM' feeding product availability from suppliers.

Secure Delivery

For security purposes, we reserve the right to cancel shipments to forwarding centres, PO Boxes, and locker boxes. For some items such as bikes and electric scooters, these can only be delivered to the billing address, no change of address or in-transit redirection is permitted for any consignments.

Bike Delivery

Shipping is FREE of charge on bikes (or orders containing bikes) over £499 within Mainland UK - services are available for remote UK regions, see the chart above for details.

We aim to have all the bikes we stock pre-built and available for immediate purchase online and for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our fully trained Cytech 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.
