Make an appointment for your next bike purchase
When you're ready to purchase your next touring bike, mountain bike or custom build, we recommend that you make an appointment
first so we can allocate uninterrupted time with you to address any specific needs you
may have and carry out a full complimentary bike fitting if needed. Additionally, for a limited time
we'll include a $50 voucher good toward accessories and gift items at the shop when you purchase a bicycle
by appointment. Click here to make an appointment.
We are THE mountain bike shop in Los Angeles
Having the Topanga State Park right in the backyard is every mountain biker's dream, and we're very lucky to be living that dream.
The Park's extensive system of fire roads and singletracks allows us to test out our fleet of demo mountain bikes
whenever we want. This is what separates Topanga Creek Outpost from the others. Our knowledge and hands-on experience allow us to
fine-tune each bike so that you purchase not just a bike from us, but a bike that performs at its optimal level, giving you
110% of the confidence and fun. Visit our selection of mountain bikes.
