Powercycle 500
550 LTD


PowerCycle is made by Merida, one of the world's largest builders of premium bicycles.
If you want to ease into an exercise program, run errands or just cruise, the PowerCycle is a fantastic choice.
With hill flattening power the Merida PowerCycle uses an integrated motor and easily detachable battery to multiply your pedaling power. The power assist is strongest when you need it most adding 2.5 times your power when starting and climbing steep hills. There are no complex controls to master.

This type bike is called a Pedalic (pedal electric cycle). To understand the principle it compares to the power steering in your auto. Try parking a car with manual steering. It can really make you sweat.
Now park a car with power assisted steering and you can turn the wheel with one finger!
This is what a pedalic is all about only you are getting the power assist to the pedals with easy work for your legs.
Manual auto steering vrs. power steering compares to riding a manual bike vrs. a pedalic.
The Powercycle is an excellant transportation alternative. With the increasing price of gas the Powercycle will pay for itself in no time. These bikes are very popular in Europe where the gas prices are a lot higher.
Standard features include: 1/2 HP peak output motor, gel spring saddle with suspension seat post, easy step through aluminum frame, fenders, rack and lighting system. Also Aluminum alloy rims with stainless steel spokes, Tektro direct pull brake, front Shimano roller brake and rear Shimano Nexus 4 speed hub. Shifting is smooth with twist grip control, generator lights front and rear, 2 leg kickstand, rear rack, mudguards, basket, 24V 400 watt motor, top assist speed of 15 mph, max load of 240 lbs.,SLA 24V 9ah battery pack.
The bike weighs 65 lbs. with battery pack and around 45lbs. without.

Powercycle 550 LTD


The Merida PowerCycle 550 LTD has the identical features as the 500 with the addition of front suspension. Due to the suspension the factory front basket is not included.
You can however mount a regular handlebar basket to the front or rear rack.
The added adjustable suspension adds even more smoothness to an already great ride.

The US Senate has passed SR 1156, clearing the way for a legal definition of an electric bicycle in the USA. President Bush has signed this law.
The new law will assign the governance of electric bicycles to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and will define a bicycle that has pedals, (and is capable of being propelled by those pedals) an electric motor of no more than 750 watts, and a top speed (on motor only) of 20 mph as a "bicycle."
Federal Electric Bike Law (PDF)
