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!

Love these bikes they are an absolute blast! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Great product- easy to ride and so much fun!

Amazing bike!

Just getting started w my Mavric Vibe life but I couldn’t be happier with the quality of the bike and how easy it is to operate.

Great bike at a competitive price!

Purchase process, delivery of bike + setup and, most importantly, the bike ride exceeded expectations. I highly recommend this bike!

Such a great bike!

Very easy to set up right out of the box. Probably took 15 minutes. The bike quality is amazing. You can see and feel how well built it is. It rides really well on and off road and definitely catches everyone’s attention. Best value I have seen in e-bikes. I highly recommend getting one for yourself!


I have the maverick vibe bike and it’s a blast! The ability to ride without using motor is great for exercise and it’s perfect because when I need a little break, I just use the throttle or motor settings. Not to mention, the battery lasts a long time! Super fun. Need to get my husband one next.


Luv the Cruz!!, rode2 mi, 1st day on very hilly streets near my home, & ate big hills like they weren't even there!

To new feedback later, thx

Vibe bike just arrived.

Bike just arrived. Set up was under 10 minutes. Took longer to undo the packing materials than to set up the bike. Came charged and was cruising the streets within 30 minutes. Live in a hilly area of austin and bike is doing just great. Smooth ride. Breaking it down is easy and fit in my trunk.

To my high school homie and an amazing bike business

Awesome bike, received this really fast. It came undamaged, easy set up, my wife and I love the color the ease of getting on and off the bike. Will be purchasing another one!

Great bike, great company

Love this bike. Makes me feel young, lowered my high blood pressure and lost weight. It feels sturdy, rides fast, and looks sick. I am so happy with this bike and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an e-bike.

Wild and funky fun

Easy to put together, easy to learn the “controls” and a wonderful feeling of freedom and excitement riding down the road, trail or path. Anxious to get a few assessories and to make my bike an everyday escape!! Thank you for making and selling this bike 🚴

Great Bikes

We just got two bikes. They are amazing. So much better than the models I was going to get at the bike shop here in Coronado. They costs less also.

Great Bike!

I purchased the bike for my wife, she has a fear of electric bikes. When she rode the Mavric Cruz for the first time all her fears went away. The bike preformed flawless and she now rides it to the gym most every day. I would recommend this bike to anyone interested in an e-bike.


All was good w the finders but unfortunately. We did not receive adequate screws to complete the install.

Amazing Bike!

I bought a Misfit and a Cruz for my girlfriend and both bikes are awesome and very simple to assemble out of the box. Highly recommend.


This e-bike is THE VERY BEST on the market and it's not even close. The speed & thrill coupled with the control & safety sets it apart, for my wife and I and for the kids. I simply cannot recommend enough... and unreal bang for your buck value. Mavric rider for life, here.

Great bike that fits all sizes - folds easily - super easy to operate


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!
