Is the TerraTrike Rambler a “Sell Out” for going Ultra Comfort with its higher seat and wider Harley style handlebars? Or is it just selling out. Well the latter is more likely the case. The Rambler has been the trike of choice for new trike owners.
Is Rambler the Ultimate Comfort Trike?
After surveying many Rambler trike owners, it seems to be because with its lighter cro-moly frame for lifting into cars and trucks as well as the up to 27 speeds for better gear ratio allowing for better hill climbing and faster on the bike trail.
TerraTrike describes the Rambler as the “love child” of the Rover and the Cruiser. Since I’ve been fortunate enough to ride all three, I have to agree. I am brand new to recumbent triking, and I was fortunate enough to be able to ride a loaner Rover while I was waiting (and waiting and waiting) for the release of the Rambler. I took a few days to compare the two of them, and the following is my assessment of the two trikes.
While the Rambler definitely looks like a deluxe model of the Rover with its crossbow design, high seat, and horizontal handlebars, the Cruiser DNA isn’t readily apparent … that is, until you get it on the road.
