BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Bottom line

The Rambo Cruiser is a rigid fatbike (without suspension). This keeps the price low, as does Rambo’s use of mechanical disc brakes and a motor from the budget brand ‘Truckrun’. This 500W motor equips the Cruiser with 750W of peak power. The Cruiser is fitted with fat 4.0” tires for all-terrain riding. Buyers have one 19” size option available for the Cruiser. Owners were satisfied with the speed and power of the Cruiser on trails and doubletrack.

Testing Rambo 500W Cruiser in the Mountains of Oregon!

This is a ****ing game-changer… It’s pretty effortless, just cruising at 12 to 15 miles per hour… These aren’t very, like, rugged off-road tires either. These are the basic *****es… This thing’s got some torque man… So far I’m super-impressed. These things are just awesome… Why would you get a normal mountain bike?

Rambo Cruiser Mid-Drive Ebike Test and Lectric Step-Thru First Trail Ride of the Year!

One of the main differences that I’ve noticed so far is the Lectric comes with a rack and fenders… Yes, [the Rambo Cruiser] is a lot more money but…there is a pretty good advantage on one thing on that bike and that’s the mid-drive motor and the torque that it has… You’re not going to beat the price and free shipping that [the Lectric] has… The noise of [the Cruiser’s] motor is very quiet…the way the pedal-assist kicks in is more fluid than on the Lectric… Do I think [the Cruiser] is worth over double the price? In my opinion, at [this price], no I do not.

Lectric Ebike 500W Geared Hub Motor vs Rambo 500W Truck Run Mid-Drive Motor up Hills

We’re going to be putting the Lectric XP 500-watt rear-hub-motor e-bike up against the Rambo Cruiser 500-watt mid-drive motor and we’re going to be doing a hill test with them… pretty impressive that the Lectric beat me… I really thought the Rambo was gonna win… The Rambo Cruiser definitely climbed up steep hills a lot easier… I definitely recommend the mid-drive if you have a lot of inclines that you’re constantly climbing up.

First Thoughts on Rambo Cruiser 500W Hunting Bike

It’s a hunting bike and this thing is bad***… We go on 12-mile, 14-mile rides… I used to love mountain-biking but y’know, you get older and mountain-biking turns into a pain in the ***. Well this, it makes it all fun again. Pedal-assist, level 5, so you just barely put any effort in. Or you don’t even need to do that. You can just throttle down… It’s awesome.
