Title:  Founder

Married/Single:  Married


City you live in:  Paradise Valley

A typical day in my life includes… Organized chaos.  Some days I am assisting with marketing and some days I am assembling bikes.  No two days are the same, and I would not have it any other way.

I was born… Alta, Iowa. Small town USA! I graduated with 56 students … Super proud Iowan! 

My favorite thing about Arizona… is all the transients.  This place is a melting pot that really brings people from all walks of life together.

I’m listening to… Nate Smith.  Always, ha.  My wife and I have been to three of his shows in 2022.  

My family… is my world.  

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…Elon Musk.  Putting aside political views, he is an absolute legend.  I am convinced he does not sleep and may indeed be a robot.  

One thing I cannot live without… is my wife.  She is my backbone and ALWAYS supports my crazy ideas.  

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a doctor.  I worked in medical device sales early in my career.  We do NOT pay the doctors enough.  

I’m inspired by… fellow entrepreneurs.  This is the most rewarding and yet taxing position in the world. 

The one person who motivates me is… my mother.  She was a single mom and put herself through college, including a doctorate degree in education.  

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… how divisive politics have become. 

The perfect day would be… a family day on the beach.  Preferably a tropical setting, ha.    

My first job was… selling phone book advertisements for the Yellow Pages.  What a grind!  

My favorite escape… hiking!  Last December, I climbed Pico de Orizaba just outside Mexico City.  18,491 ft!!

My life… is a gift.  Tomorrow is not guaranteed so go out and seize the day.  

I’m currently working on… a new bike launch set to release in February!   I can’t wait to unveil this one!

Always… respect your elders.  I watch how our youth interact with adults today and it concerns me. 

Never… settle.

Favorite Quote… “Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution.” – Unknown

Biggest Dream… “retiring” in my 50s … traveling with my wife … and having our daughters meet us wherever we are currently vacationing.   

My Pet Peeve(s)… When people are unable to say – Please, Thank You, and I’m Sorry!

I've only had my Misfit for 3 weeks but it's been awesome so far. Speed gets up to nearly 31 MPH, it's a smooth ride, and the battery life seems really adequate so far. Unpacking and assembling the few required pieces (handlebars, seat) was super easy and took all of 15-minutes. I've really enjoyed the MisFit experience!

So fun!!

Great job, Mavric! This Misfit is a blast to ride. I’ve recommended to all my friends.

The Best E-Bike

I shopped around a lot, and this is the best E-Bike for the money. 750 Watt, Full suspension, Hydraulic Brakes, and the best looking!! I love it, the thumb throttle is awesome for the extra boost needed for hills or loose gravel/sand. I love off-roading on this, and other E-bike brands can't keep up with me. Done several trips over 45 miles with no problems and plenty of battery life to spare. The only thing is to be careful when folding the bike to not pinch the wires.

We love these bikes

My wife and I own two of the 750W Misfit’s. We use them on the bike trails in and around Gilbert and Chandler during the cooler months and at our place in Pinetop during the summer. These bikes are reliable, fun and powerful. I am 6’1” and 230 lbs and can power up hills without a problem. The foldable design make them easy to transport to trails around the state.

Love this bike

The looks of this bike caught my attention and heard from some friends that had a couple that they liked them. This bike has been great. Powerful, smooth, good suspension, excellent range on battery, and I like the how headlight/taillights are built in and come on automatically. Would highly recommend

Great Gift For My Mom

Bought this for Mother's Day and made the best gift for my mom.

Love this bike!

I received my bike quickly after I ordered it. It was easy to setup and has performed well over the past few weeks I’ve had it. I love that I can still pedal like I am biking, but not exert much effort! I am getting another one for my husband for Father’s Day!

Great bike for everyone!

We bought 3

My wife and I bought 3 and have loved them. They are durable, safe and fun. We regularly take trips over 20 miles without any battery issues. We sold our beach cruisers once we bought them. Our teenage son goes with us on most occasions. Something he didn’t do with the beach cruisers.


Love it so much! 🖤

My new hunting bike!

I bought a new mavric for my hunting farm in iowa and couldn’t be happier. I researched a lot of different options and there’s no better bike on the market for that price point.

Fun Bike!

Love the assist on the hills! Allows me to keep up and enjoy cycling.

Love the ride!

Great bike!

Love it

Awesome bike!!

Great Ride!

Love this bike. Smooth ride

Amazing bike

Bought two of these in December. Assembly was easy and the ride was unbelievable. My first EBike and I absolutely love it. Friends have tried it as well and they loved the ride. I’m buying two more for the family and our mountain getaway house! Can’t wait to ride all summer.

Feels like I am FLYING

Dang where to start. I bought this bad boy for myself as a birthday gift. Wow…. Best gift I’ve received ever. *high fives self*. This sweet ride moves yet is very stable. Did some off roading with it a month back and TOASTED my friends non mav electric bike. Dude couldn’t even compete.

The software is awesome. Bike has lasted me for a year already and battery is still running strong. Would recommend anyone looking to have a great time on an electric bike to pick one of these puppies up

Love my bike!

Love everything about this bike! No complaints whatsoever

I’m take mine everywhere!

This has been one of the best investments I have ever made. I take my pretty much on all of my errands.

Awesome bike for everyone.

This bike is a great option for anyone looking for a entry level e-bike that is affordable and doesn’t take up a lot of space. Having the ability to fold it up allowed me to take my Mavric so many more places than a non-foldable bike. My wife loved my bike so much, we ended up purchasing a second one for her which fits in the back seat of her Tesla!
