Does the job
My primary use for this bike is for deep access behind locked gates where ebikes are accepted, motorized vehicles are not, and where turkeys might be naïve. The Rebel does that well and is a great tool for putting distance between myself and other hunters :) The fat tires roll over challenging rocks, sand, downed limbs, mud, even snow. The thumb throttle is real handy for hillside starts. In addition to the gears, you can select between 5 levels of assistance ranging from pretty much imperceptible to significant. It uses a cadence sensor to "decide" when to provide that assist - You pedal forward, the bike kicks in assistance. This takes some getting used to and can be a bit clunky. It demands your attention as it provides assist no matter how much pressure you put on the pedals or your reason for rotating them (think adjusting pedal position on a downhill when you're carefully coasting). And there is a small lag between pedal rotation stop and end of the assistance. None of these are deal killers, just quirks to be aware of and be ready for to enjoy a controlled ride. I mistakenly thought this was going to be a 'torsion sensor' bike that senses how hard you are pedaling and dishes out the assistance accordingly. Torque sensor makes for a much more natural ride. I didn't want a cadence sensor, but it was totally my fault for not researching the purchase more carefully. If I could go back, I'd have purchased the next model up (Prowler or higher) just for the torque sensor.

Game changing tool for hunting
I use this for bow hunting. Purchasing the back rack and fenders is an absolute must. It takes a little bit to get used to riding the bike in farm fields and over rough terrain. Also takes some practice to learn how peddling and the motor assisting work with the bike. After some riding time and adjustments to your own style it's a total game changer. You can get to tree stands quickly, quietly and with little to no ground scent. Deer in fields tend to not grasp what it is and will be slow to spook. If they do it is not as bad as a human walking more like farm equipment passing by. This is my first year with it, each hunt I was more efficient using it. I dislike Rambo brand bike rack to transport the bike. It works but I think there are better custom built or other company makes that may be more solid and easier to load and unload.
