  • This e-bike’s Bafang BBS02 mid-drive motor achieves a maximum 120Nm of torque.
  • Massive 4” Kenda Krusade tires roam over mud, snow, dirt, roots, rocks and limbs.
  • The Roamer’s 750W Bafang BBS02 motor can operate at a peak rating of 1000W.
  • With an internal 3-speed Sturmey Archer hub, gearing components are protected and will not become entangled in long vegetation.
  • Rambo riders are provided with a powerful independent throttle.
  • Owners say the Roamer has plenty of power to climb hills and haul trailer loads of cargo or kit.
  • Strong stopping power is delivered via Logan hydraulic disc brakes.
  • Rambo’s Roamer has a maximum carrying capacity of 300lb.

  • One tester says he easily assembled his Roamer in 20 minutes.
  • A tester was content with the relief provided by the GT MRK fork over rocky ground.
  • The downward curve of the Roamer’s top-tube makes it easier to mount and dismount.

8 reasons not to buy

  • The 3-speed drivetrain doesn’t offer a wide gear range in mountainous locales.
  • At 63lb, owners found the Roamer heavy, especially when lifting it onto a car carrier.
  • Rambo’s Roamer is not a low-priced option.
  • One owner’s Roamer only had one screw in the rear disc rotor, which fell off.
  • A buyer received their bike without a charging unit and an essential screw.
  • Owners report a clicking sound from the Roamer’s rear hub, making it noisy on hunts.
  • The Roamer is only available in a large-ish 19" frame size.
  • One owner could not shift gears on their new Roamer.

Bottom line

Rambo’s Roamer is a fat-tire backwoods bike that employs a 750W Bafang mid-drive motor for powerful and direct pedal input. This motor provides a peak output of 1000 watts and 120Nm of torque, making it a capable climber. An internal 3-speed hub protects gearing from vegetation and damage but is limiting in steep terrain. The bike is enjoyed by hunters. However, being a hardtail, the Roamer also serves as a great commuting option for riders who have some dirt or gravel on their way to work. The Roamer is not a frugal option, but it is capable.

Rambo Roamer E-Bike (Game Changer!)

Yes, they’re not the cheapest bikes out there. However, they are great investments… this thing definitely zips… If you’re going up and down some steep grades I don’t suggest getting this 3-speed… All in all, I’m very pleased with this bike.

Rambo Electric Bike Review

With the generation 2 R750, every now and then you’ll suck a cornstalk into the derailleur, and have to stop and pull it out… That changed on this generation 3 bike, which has a hub gear design.
