Vista is an American-made mountain bike with aggressive trail geometry, long travel front suspension, and plus sized tires to handle your riding mayhem. Manufactured in Bangor, WI. Available as a frame only here.
Due to the high demand and the industry-wide component shortage, the current lead time is 8-10 weeks. We do not anticipate this lead time to decrease for several months.
Please take note of any OUT OF STOCK items on the component customizer. All OUT OF STOCK items will be available mid-April.
Vista is our take on what a hardtail mountain bike should be…aggressive, fast, and fun! Vista is an American-made mountain bike with modern trail geometry, plus sized tires, and burly tubing. Designed as a mesh between a trail bike and dirt jump bike, the Vista doesn’t feel out of place stopping at the pump track on the way home from a trail ride. The Vista’s roomy cockpit is made for short stems and wide bars for better control on switchbacks and rock gardens. 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 or climbing that daunting hill.

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.

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.
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.
It would have been easy to walk into my local bike shop and purchase a Trek or Specialized off of the floor. Both are good quality bikes. However, I decided to order a Vista from Wyatt, and I couldn't be happier.
Prior to ordering, I personally spoke with the owner, Wyatt Hrudka. We talked about the different options available. At the end of the conversation, I had a clear picture in my mind of what the final product look like. I ordered without hesitation.
During the manufacturing process, Wyatt and his team kept me up to date on the progress. I decided to make a couple of changes during the process which Wyatt accommodated without issue.
The bike was delivered and assembly was simple. Due to the weather, I have not been out as much as I would like, but I only have praise for what I have experienced so far. I highly recommend Wyatt Bikes. Other manufacturers put out good products, but Wyatt is custom. I also love the frame is made in the USA!

Awesome bike! Attention to detail and quality are top notch. Customer service is also excellent! Thank y’all very much!
My wife rode her new Vista this weekend and loved it! She went from her old Gary Fisher full suspension to the Vista hardtail. She wasn't disappointed and can't believe the way the new bike handles. The Vista makes riding fun again. It is fast, smooth, climbs like a goat, and is just loads of fun. It handled all the terrain we normally ride. I normally ride well out in front of her, but now she's on my tail and I actually had to let her lead in some of the downhill sections as she complained she had to brake behind me. Vista gave her a huge boost. All grins. Highly recommend! Thanks Wyatt!
Wyatt was prompt, friendly, and clear in all communication. The bike is simply awesome. I'm already using it to hopefully turn some friends into future Wyatt customers.
2020 has been a strange (will be a historic) year. COVID-19, Presidential Election angst regardless of left or right, and the demand for bicycles. I started shopping in July. Local bike stores. No inventory. Online stores. No inventory. International stores. No inventory. By chance, I Googled "Mountain Bikes made in the USA" and Wyatt Bicycles emerged. I read and studied the entire website - a thousand times. I agonize and fret. "Should I spend that kind of money without even riding one of his bikes?". Finally, with encouragement from my wife of 34 years, I build my bike and place my order. I start to reconsider my component selection. I call Wyatt. He points me in the correct direction. I decide to change my color selection. "No problem, Glen. We can do that". Ongoing communication from Wyatt throughout the build only solidified my decision. Emails arrive. Your frame is being manufactured", Your bike is being assembled" and, finally, "Your bike has shipped". Two days later it arrives. I assemble by following directions and using supplied tools. The bike is all I had hoped for. First ride, it climbs like a mountain goat and gives me confidence to send it down the trail. I love my Vista. Thank you, Wyatt. You're an artist. Keep creating works of art. Continue to build amazing bikes that even 53 year old "boys" can enjoy. Ride on! "Send it"
As a metal fabricator, I was drawn to Wyatt Bicycles because of their build design and attention to detail. I am torn between mounting the frame on the wall as a piece of art, or going out and using it as it was meant to be used. I'll see you on the trails.....
I just got back from my first weekend outing with the Vista, and I can’t wait for the next! Wyatt and his team built a high performance offroad machine that’s as fun to ride as it is to look at. I was shopping for American-made mountain bikes, and I stumbled across a company that not only produces awesome bikes, but also happens to have my name on it. Come on...
After chatting with Wyatt a bit about what I was looking for, I decided to go for it, and I’m sure glad I did. The Vista is amazingly light-weight, and insanely fast. The self-sealing tires have also proven useful already against central Texas mesquite thorns, and the choice of components is spectacular.
10/10 would order again.
Love this bike! These bikes come with a higher price tag than the regular bike, but I’m the first few weeks it have proven to be a great investment. They are extremely light, are well balanced, and very smooth. I will have this bike for a long time and will be a loyal customer in the future!
Wyatt was absolutely awesome to work with on building a custom mountain bike to my liking. I drove 3.5 hours to pick my bike up and my jaw dropped when I walked in and saw that beautiful masterpiece. I was able to even custom pick a different frame color(I'm picky on colors). All along Wyatt kept in constant contact with me and had my bike built on time, just like he had said. The complete process was seamless from first email to picking up the bike. Not to mention how awesome this bike performs on the trails! Thanks again!
We recently received out new Vista and my expectations were high. It did in fact exceed my expectations. I am an admitted bike snob and always prefer to buy American made products when possible. My own mountain bike is American made, but I had given up on finding anything reasonably priced for my teenage sons to ride. I found Wyatt bikes at the last minute and couldn't be happier with what arrived in the box. The parts spec is very nice at the price point and it was assembled very well. I prefer the Shimano parts to the ubiquitous Sram NX parts that seem to be everywhere this year. Installing the front wheel, handlebar and stem, and some minor control adjustments for personal preference only took a few minutes. I haven't been able to try it on the trails yet and look forward to giving it a proper shake down. I'm glad to see a newer company so successfully navigating the competitive bike market.
