Rambo Bikes

Let’s not beat around the bush: quality e-bikes are not cheap.

That’s because they’re built to last so you know you invested in a tool like no other on the market. Yet, to make sure your Rambo bike maintains its integrity, owners must maintain their product on a regular basis. Luckily, this isn’t a difficult process and can be done with minimal tools.

Thus, this comprehensive guide will break down what Rambo e-bike owners need to do from the day it shows up at their house to the end of its life cycle.

Maintaining Your E-Bike: Day 1

When you purchase your Rambo e-bike at a licensed dealer or have it shipped to your home, the Day 1 maintenance is the same for everyone. First, you want to burn in your brakes. Note that anytime you replace the brakes you need to do this as well.

By burning in your brakes, Rambo notes that you’re transferring some of the pad compound to the surface of the bike’s rotors, which in turn helps the pad grip the rotor. To properly burn in your brakes, bring your bike up to a nominal speed before evenly applying pressure on each brake until the bike comes close to a full stop.

It will take at least 20 stops on each brake. Make sure you’re doing this in a clean area and that you burn each brake separately. Failure to burn in your brakes can damage the rotors and put the rider at risk.

Maintaining Your E-Bike: Frequent Maintenance

While you don’t have to be overprotective or baby your e-bike, it is recommended that consistent care be applied to ensure a rider’s safety and the bike’s longevity.

After each ride, give your e-bike a quick look over. Because Rambo bikes are meant to be taken off-road, you want to ensure no severe damage has occurred on the ride. Check that the bike’s pedals are snug and lubricated and for any dents in the wheel rims or loose/damaged spokes. Always ensure your tires are properly inflated as well, and that any minor holes are patched or damaged tires are replaced. The bike’s chain should also be free of rust. Finally, look at the bike’s control cables and brake housings after every few rides for any binding or damage.

After every ride, make sure your e-bike is free of detritus build up. Frequently lubricate the chain, suspension sliders, brake and gear shifting wires and other important mechanical parts of the bike.

Finally, keep an eye on your battery. Don’t forget to charge it overnight before a ride, and ensure that, if you store the bike for prolonged periods of time, that you periodically charge the battery as its recommended to not store the battery flat.

How frequently should I service my Rambo E-Bike?

Yes, e-bikes need serviced just like any other vehicle. Rambo suggests having their bikes serviced every 1,000 miles or every 6 months, although they also note that serving comes down to frequency of use. If you don’t ride your bike often, consider servicing it at least once a year.
