MerkyBikes - E Tough Going R9

Every detail of the R9, from its well proportioned positioning, padded saddle and front suspension, to it's hydraulic brakes, complete with a brake lever and safety "power cut" function, has been designed with style, comfort and durability in mind. It is also equipped with a Bafang 250w hub motor and Shimano Altus 9 speed gear set with 6 pedal assist levels. These components make this model suitable for all terrains, not to mention being able to get to work, or anywhere else without breaking a sweat.

Step-throughs are designed to require a lower range of mobility, making them ideal for cyclists with restricted movement and also riders that need to mount and dismount frequently. The R9 is no exception with lowest crossbar point coming in at a mere 10 inches above ground level.

With its blue illumination, the LCD will keep you up to date with your mph, energy consumption rate and battery life. It is worth noting it has a fast charging Samsung lithium battery with a 45 mile range*. This new and improved version of the R9 is supplied fully kitted out with a front light, rear carrier, steel mudguards and bell.

The technology side of the bike is maintenance free and very reliable, which means you can take your electric bike in for routine servicing at any good quality bicycle shop throughout the UK or better yet use the Bike Shed Online Mobile Mechanic Service.
