Overview

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.

Wyatt Maverick

I have been riding a custom built Wyatt Maverick from RideFATbikes.ca, through all 4 seasons of the year, and been extremely happy with the bike's performance.

The Wyatt Maverick has a modern MTB-style progressive geometry (longer top tube, steep seat tube, slack head tube), that is ideally suited for up to 120mm of front suspension travel, and accepts all Fat bike wheelset and tire sizes. My bike has a Mastodon PRO 120 installed, Atomik/Berd/DT Swiss wheelset (26"x82mm), SRAM GX Eagle 12spd groupset, 45N tires (26x4.6"), Hayes Dominion A4 brakes, and a 150mm travel dropper post.

The alloy frame is hand-crafted in Wisconsin, and I'm proud to be riding a "Made in USA" product. The attention to detail on the frame is excellent, and so is the customer service of Wyatt Bicycles.

The adjustable chainstays may add a bit of extra weight to the frame, (for those that put a priority on component weights), but the ability to change your chainstay length and wheelbase from 445-465mm, allows one to fine tune the the riding characteristics for all 4-season usage. Shorter chainstay length is ideal for singletrack and technical riding, especially with a front suspension fork installed. A longer chainstay length is ideal for XC bikepacking or winter riding where there may be extended climbs, especially in snow or on ice - where a more stable platform is essential for balance and control. The adjustable chainstay feature of the Wyatt Maverick therefore allows two different biking platforms within a single frame.

The Maverick is very comfortable to ride for hours, and this Fat bike climbs so well (because of its thoughtful geometry), that you forget about the added weight of the frame being alloy vs. carbon.

The Wyatt Maverick is a bargain for its pricepoint, and knowing you are 100% supporting a Made in USA product is an added bonus!

Thank You Wyatt, for a great Fat bike!

Worth the wait!

I purchased this bike May 6th with a lead time of 10-12 weeks. I did not receive my bike until September 2nd. In waiting i did want to cancel the order but i kept patient. I emailed the company 3x during the wait and within 2 to 3 days i received a response. Very good communication. When i assembled the bike i must say i was above and beyond happy. Im 6'4" and i have all the room needed and some. The bike although x-large, is very light. Took it for a 46mile ride covering a variety of terrain and it handled well and kept up with the other mountain bikes i was travelling with. If i had to wait longer i would after having experienced this dream bike of mine. Thank you Wyatt!!

Wyatt Maverick

Wyatt was great to work with, and despite national bike part shortages, stayed in touch with me regarding delays. The Maverick itself is amazing! I paid for an upgraded paint color, and it was well worth it! I’ve taken it out on one trail ride so far because I just got it, but it’s a beast and I love it! Can’t wait for the snow!

High quality fat tire bike

This is my first fat tire bike plus first high end bike. It's very well made and I am glad I did get this bike. There are lots of options on how you can get it made.

Questions about suspension fork were answered quickly and thoroughly leading to decision on which one to go with for my type of riding. Bike was delivered quickly and so far have just taken a few test rides to get set up properly but the bike has performed great. Can’t wait to get some longer rides in with it.

Solid Fat bike!

Love it. Great build and solid feel under foot. Plenty of room for my size 13 feet, but still quick and responsive enough for its size. The 4.8” tires perform amazing in powder sand and gravel. Handlebars feel a little wide (I’m 6’2”). Manitou shocks are smooth and plenty of travel. Stock petals could be better, we'll see how long they last. I’m loving it and the performance is great! Thanks Wyatt!!!

First Fat Tire Bike

The Maverick… what a bike! Kudos to Wyatt and his staff for building an incredible machine, and providing superb customer service. Wyatt kept me informed through the whole process and in particular with the seemingly never ending (through NO fault of Wyatt Bicycles) supply chain issues. It was WELL worth the wait. They will not build/sell you a bike that does not suit your needs perfectly. I most highly recommend this company!

Fatty can FLY

Wyatt Bikes are top notch! Wyatt was very accommodating and was very responsive. It was great to bounce ideas off him for components.

The bike could just be called the Terminator because it is a bruiser. I got mine in raw finish and it is awesome. I have taken the bike to both a BMX park as well as a challenging bike trail full of swooping downhill, techy switchbacks, and steep climbs. The thing can absolute fly and is very nimble!

I got an XL and am 6’5 and it fits awesome. Plenty of room to move around the bike

Also, I took a lot of pride in knowing my bike is made in the USA

Zoomy’s Review

(this is the daughter) For my 16th birthday I got the option between a bike or a car, obviously I chose a new bike. After doing a ton of research we came across Wyatt’s bikes. When we found out it was custom made in Lacrosse we jumped at it! Considering the current bike shortage, the wait was appropriate and totally worth it! The bike rides amazing and goes right over any boulders. I’ve had it less than two weeks and rode it multiple times. As a plus, it looks super cool, meeting Wyatt was super cool. I definitely recommend if you are looking into a new bike!

Fantastic Fat Bike!

My husband and I purchased our first fat bike and we are loving it so far. We have been riding it on the local MTB trails and can't wait to try it out this winter. Everything was setup well from Wyatt and the bike feels great to ride, especially the front suspension. Would recommend this bike to anyone looking for a frame builder in Wisconsin and a way to support the local bike community. Thanks Wyatt!
