Motor And Drivetrain
The HMB in this bike's name stands for "Hybrid Mid-drive Bosch." This means that the 250W Bosch Active Line motor is mounted between the pedals rather than in a wheel hub.
A mid-mounted motor has several benefits, including better efficiency, low center of gravity, and balanced weight distribution.
The "T9" part of the name denotes that this bike uses a derailleur in its 9-speed drivetrain. It has a Shimano drivetrain with a wide spread of gears, so you will be able to ride this bike with efficiency
To power the 250W Bosch motor Gazelle has opted for the Bosch PowerPack 400. This doesn't have the capacity of higher-end batteries, but it is paired well with the motor and drivetrain, giving you 40+ miles of range.
The Gazelle Medeo T9 City HMB has a step-through frame design. This features a low top tube, so mounting and dismounting are incredibly easy, no matter what you wear.
Gazelle has used a lightweight aluminum alloy in the frame's construction. Therefore it is relatively light. But the frame's stiffness also reduces vibrations from the road and enhances the bike's handling.
This electric bike looks gorgeous thanks to its elegant frame design. But it also comes in two classy colors that enhance the tasteful aesthetic of the bike.
You can buy the Gazelle Medeo T9 City HMB in small or medium frame sizes, so make sure you get the correct size for you.
The cargo rack and kickstand make the Gazelle Medeo T9 City HMB a practical electric bike, adding to its user-friendliness. But the suspension fork helps with the smooth ride quality. It features a coil spring that you can adjust to your weight for the optimum comfort level.
To enhance the bike's comfort further, Gazelle has fitted it with a high handlebar stem. It is also adjustable to allow you to fine-tune your riding position to suit your personal preference.
The handlebar grips are ergonomically designed to fit your hands perfectly. They are covered in soft rubber that feels great and provides lots of grip, even with sweaty hands.
The most reassuring components of this electric bike are its hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors. These are from Shimano and provide lots of stopping power without having to pull too hard on the levers. You can adjust the brake lever reach for comfort and control, which is an excellent feature.
If you are looking for an elegant and efficient electric bike, the Gazelle Medeo T9 City HMB is an excellent choice at this price level.
