Description

Maverick

Just like the name implies, Maverick is different from the rest of the pack. It is an American-made fat bike with modern trail geometry and massive tires. It is the missing tool to keep your free riding spirit alive when the snow hits the ground. The Maverick’s roomy cockpit is made for short stems and wide bars for better control over the big front tire. The slack head tube angle, low bottom bracket, and optimized chain stay lengths make for a balanced ride to keep you feeling confident on the steep downhill sections and allow you to climb like a mountain goat on those daunting hills. Maverick is designed for having fun whenever and wherever you ride.

A new design

We’ve taken a different approach to frame design by using oversized American-made 6061 tubing up front and rectangular tubing in the rear, matted to CNC’d chain stay and seat stay yokes. This burly design reduces frame flex, improves torsional compliance, and enhances power transfer from each pedal stroke, while giving our bikes the unique aggressive look that we are becoming known for. The incorporation of CNC’d yokes also allows our frames to have greater tire and chain ring clearance, while creating stronger weld joints due to a more precise manufacturing process.

Finish Options

Factory Raw

A current trend in the hand crafted bike industry is choosing a bike that is delivered with a factory raw finish. The factory raw look best reveals the manufacturing quality and technical details of the frame. Factory raw frames are not coated after production, but move directly to assembly. Over time, an oxide layer/patina forms on the frame, causing the shine of the raw aluminium to fade slightly. With the help of a polishing compound or cleaner, the old shine can be restored in a few easy steps.

Powder Coat

If you decide to customize the color of your bike, you can choose from a selection of several different powder coat colors. If there isn’t a color shown on our bike build page, please contact us for custom options. Powder coating is an advanced finishing process that is a extremely durable and more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing when exposed to snow, rain, and the hot sun.

Maverick

I had a nice long review typed up, but I clicked back and since this is a form and not an email, it didn't save. Ugh!

Anyway, I ended up having a problem with my back tire sealant, and 4 additional bottles of Stans didn't fix the problem, so Wyatt sent a new back wheel. Wyatt was very responsive, which is particularly impressive given the global pandemic.

My suspicion is that if I ever get a new fat bike that it will be a carbon frame, so I hope Wyatt is able to expand at some point. I would love to buy from him again!

Thank you for the 5 star review Doug! Sorry that you lost your initial review that you had typed up. We will make a note on the review form that reviews are not able to be saved, but they can be edited after they have been posted. Enjoy the ride!

1st time purchase

I can only say that it was on time and what I asked for. Haven't put it to the test yet as I am recovering from crash9ing on my street bike, which I took off road. I will write another one when I test it out. Thanks.

Brilliant Ride

American made and assembled, what's not to like?

Attention to detail, craftsmanship, and assembly are all exceptional. And Wyatt is quite personable and patient with finicky customers....

The Maverick 7 is a fantastic ride. It goes, climbs, and rocks single track with grace befitting a fat tire bike. One for my wife is in the near future.

Thanks Wyatt and Crew

An American Beauty

Far and away the best bike I've every owned. Terrific customer service. Wyatt was kind enough to set me up with a separate studded wheel set with my order. The frame is sturdy yet light. Excellent welds at the joints and the fit and finish is nice. They'd be my go to manufacturer if I ever need another bike.

Wyatt and customer support

I want to say how absolutely amazing and accommodating Wyatt has been throughout my bike purchase and subsequent fitting issues...I have some pretty specific fitting requirements and Wyatt was more than understanding, sending me different forks to try, and giving me the feedback that I needed to get it dialed in...this Maverick is an amazing bike, and crazy great build...and the customer service has been nothing short of SPECTACULAR!!!...
