This is my first FAT tire bike and Wyatt hit expectations on all accounts. When going through the purchasing process, i had a lot of questions that Wyatt was very helpful in answering based on the type of riding that i would be doing. The bike arrived on time and did not take much time to assemble the few components that were disassembled to ship. The quality is top notch and the ride is awesome. My riding ranges from off-road trails, gravel roads, and some paved road areas. The standard drive train works well and is geared to travel up some good offroad grades without burning out a part time rider. I upgraded the front forks to the inverted wren shocks, moved to the 27.5x3.8 wheels and swapped out the standard seat post for a dropper post. I am happy with all the upgrades, worth the additional. I plan to try it out this winter in some snow. If you are looking for a top notch FAT tire bike from a company that helps fit the bike to rider, Wyatt is for you..
I purchased a custom color maverick with some different parts that I wanted installed. They were very accommodating to my request. Their customer service is excellent. The frame showed up flawless. I love that it’s American made. First ride was great and I can’t wait to get some miles on.
I purchased three Mavericks for my wife, daughter, and me. After about nine months of riding, we are loving them more than ever, and my daughter is looking for opportunities to ride in the snow!
I "grew up" riding a 1991 Stumpjumper in the mountains of Central PA and after a ton of research, the Wyatt Maverick became the clear winner for our family. Wyatt is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and shared his wisdom while selecting components. After purchasing, my daughter and I made the trip to visit the shop and see how our Mavericks are built - just amazing!
How do you place a value on knowing the people who manufactured, heat treated, and powder-coated your bicycle frame, in Wisconsin, and all from USA materials?
Riding has been a mix of logging roads, trails, gravel, and even the beach (which is phenomenal). I love how this bike is stable, maneuverable, and climbs like crazy! But be prepared for lots of questions - a Wyatt Maverick is an attention magnet!
Definitely worth snagging if you're getting your bike. I didn't know about bottom brackets but very glad I researched what they are and made the upgrade. Replaces stock bottom bracket and puts a very nice all metal one.
Great to work with on all aspects of the build. End result was nothing less than perfect.
Wyatt and his team did a great job. The design and build quality are exceptional. I upgraded to the Paul Klamper brakes not because I needed them but because I wanted another great American made product. Vote with your dollars and support American manufacturers and small businesses.
My husband got one two years ago and I have coveted it ever since. I could feel the difference between well-known brand rentals and his Wyatt, and this spring I finally ordered my own. I did my first big ride yesterday and I was blown away! The small fits me perfectly (I'm 5'4") and the beautiful craftsmanship translates into a fun and responsive ride. I am so excited to get back out there!
Used these cable guides when installing my PNW dropper post . This really helped with getting the cables right where I wanted them to be .
Price is great .
I've had my Maverick for about 6 weeks now and have been very satisfied with it's performance. My primary motivation for riding is fitness and fun, and my Maverick checks those boxes admirably. The gearing has been appropriate for my trails and it rides very comfortably. Since I live a couple hours away from Wyatt's shop I was able to see the build process and talk with him about the specs that make sense for my riding.
Very pleased with the bike and proud to support an American Made manufacturer! Thanks Wyatt and Team!
I’ve had my maverick for about a month now and been out on a few rides and I’m loving it from the fit and feel of the geometry, shifting, brakes, and have had a lot of people complement on the colours I picked.
I’m 6’5” and this xl frame fits me perfectly and is such a pleasure to ride, I’m looking forward to some longer rides this summer.
Great bike thanks Wyatt and team.
This is by far the best bike I've had. Being made in USA is the best. More companies should be more like this one. this rides as good as it looks. The people working at Wyatt bicycles are great as well. I'm so glad I have one of there bikes and could be part of this. I can't say enuf about how impressed I am with the Wyatt Vista and there company. Great job. So cool.
It was impossible to find a fat tire bike in southern California in late 2021 so I searched for dealers that had such bikes and learned about Wyatt Bikes in Wisconsin (my home state). I spoke with the owner (Wyatt) and he seemed very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their bikes so I placed an order. My bike arrived 16 weeks later (longer than projected 10-12 weeks). The shipment was packaged extremely well and assembly/adjustments were quite straightforward and took less than an hour. The Owners Manual is very useful and complete. The Wisconsin made frame was very nicely manufactured and the raw finish that I elected is beautiful. Considering the frame is XL with its humongous tires, the bike is surprisingly light. The Maverick is a pleasure to ride with easy shifting and great brakes. Plus, the sound it makes on the pavement is daunting to others on the road!! Very happy with my purchase
New Bike Day! My Wyatt Maverick arrived today and I could not be more pleased. The black-on-black color scheme looks as slick and rebellious as a young Johnny Cash. All that's missing are the dark shades.
With the Terrene Cake Eater 27.5 X 4.5" tires, the ride is smooth, efficient, and solid. The SRAM NX 1 X 12 drivetrain will give me the extra gears I need for long days in the saddle, once it's set up for bikepacking, and the frame geometry seems relaxed, yet aggressive.
Wyatt's customer service has been exceptional through the building process, accommodating some last minute changes without issue, and keeping me updated on the manufacturing process throughout. And I'm absolutely elated that the frame was handmade in the USA, with aluminum made in the USA, and American labor.
Looking forward to putting this bike to the test on some upcoming bikepacking adventures.
This is my first Fat Bike and I am not disappointed. After researching locally and hearing that I would not be able to order a Fat Bike for delivery prior to April 2022, I found the Wyatt Maverick. I ordered it as a combination Birthday, Christmas and Retirement gift for myself on August 8, expecting 10 to 12 weeks for delivery. As I was anticipating the delivery I decided to order a rack from Wyatt as well. The bike took longer than anticipated and at the last minute we needed to make some changes to the components if I didn’t want to wait even longer. Wyatt called me and we settled on the components that were in stock. Even with the delay the bike arrived before the snow in Colorado. They assembled the bike rack and mounted to the bicycle saving me time. I have had the opportunity to ride the bike a few times in various trail and weather conditions the i have not been disappointed. I am glad that I was able to find a quality bike manufactured in the USA and I look forward to the rides ahead in my future.
I bought this bike wanting a USA made fat bike. There seemed to be no risk with the 30 day test ride policy. From the pictures and website description I hoped for a comfortable riding position. I can't even explain with words how thrilled I am with this bike. It is more than I hoped for. The best I can describe it is I feel as if Wyatt consulted me directly to make the perfect bike. The frame, welds, machining, and components are outstanding. The color I wanted, and as I rode a single track after a bad wind storm I had a bad encounter with a branch that got lodged up into the rear wheel and frame. I am amazed there are no scratches on the powder coat. Paint would have never held up like that. The riding position is incredible. Now being a Maverick owner and the wondering is in the past, I would wait years if I had to for this bike. My advice, don't hesitate. Can't say enough about my positive experience. Happy trails.
As a taller rider (6’7” -all arms and legs), finding the XL Wyatt Maverick, was a dream come true. By far the longest, slackest, best fitting fat bike/29+ bike I’ve ever ridden. I received the frame less than a week ago, but I quickly built her up, then headed down to Moab and Fruita. Still lots more riding to do, but my initial reaction is… WOW!!! I’m LOVING my new whip!
I love the bike, I can't wait to outfit it and enjoy all the weather and conditions that people often don't enjoy with their Bikes.
Newcomer into mountain biking and I wanted to buy a bike that was made in the United States and Wyatt was the answer. Affordable American built awesome!
