Topanga Creek Outpost provides a truly unique experience like no other. Situated in the middle of the beautiful Topanga Canyon, the scenic drive alone is worth coming up here for a visit. The Outpost is half bike shop which we're known for, and half creative space that's full of handmade artisan products, unique items not found anywhere else and Topanga Creek Outpost branded items.
The adventurous spirit is in our souls and everything we do. We have raced 2,700 miles from Canada to the Mexican border in the Tour Divide, bikepacked from Omaha to Chicago through the gravel roads of Iowa, and whitewater rafted 144 miles on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Yes we love epic adventures but smaller ones can be just as spectacular. Our weekly UnPredict Your Wednesday overnight adventure allows us to experience amazing wonders the Mother Nature has to offer, every week. Even discovering new local trails on the Saturday shop ride absolutely makes our day.
We truly love what we do and it's not just lip service. When you become a customer of ours you become a part of our community which is full of adventurous souls who also value the quality of life, one adventure at a time.
Having been in business since 1999 from our humble beginning as an urban bike shop to what TCO is today, we have an extensive knowledge of all types of bicycles when it comes to custom builds and bike repairs. Dozens of bike races, hundreds of groups rides, weekly bikepacking trips and microadventures have taught us things that cannot be learned from a manual.
People from around the world make us the destination place for their mountain bikes, touring bikes, cyclocross, gravel bikes and custom components such as hand-lace wheels, Rohloff hub installation, dynamo hub integration and a lot more. No two bikes are identical. The experience and attention to detail we put in each bike make them special.
Cycling and bikepacking may be our passion, but Topanga Creek Outpost also reflects the things we enjoy and cherish outside the bike world. An example of interesting and unique products you'll find at the Outpost: Artisan handmade chocolate; handmade ceramic coffee mugs; Palomino Blackwing Pencils, the best pencils in the world; Field Notes products; 10-Speed Coffee; BBQ sauce; French-made pocket knives; clothing and much more.
We're also very proud of our huge selection of American-made products and they are growing by the day. Many are made in Los Angeles which we're even more excited about. We're committed to support as many USA-made products as possible because we believe in their quality, craftsmanship and design philosophies.
Topanga is one of the few hidden gems in Los Angeles. It's nestled between Pacific Palisades, Malibu and the San Fernando valley. We're only 20 minutes from the Santa Monica Pier, and just minutes away is the Topanga State Park which offers an extensive system of fire roads, singletracks, hiking trails and gorgeous vistas. People who rent bikes from us or simply want to explore the State Park can just "park and ride" right from the shop. All kinds of adventures can be had just minutes away.
When you arrive in Topanga you'll immediately notice the rustic beauty of the green canyon. It's rich in music history and the spiritual vibes attract artists from all around. Come and truly enjoy this unique surrounding not found anywhere else in Los Angeles.
Deeply influenced by the creative energy of Topanga, we fully embrace our new mantra "the spirit of finding our own way" by starting a brand called Rogue Journeymen to take our own creativity to the next level.
With a full leathercrafting workbench set up inside the shop, we have been making artisan leather belts, valet trays, mason jar/coffee mug holder, key chains, bracelets, business card holders, canvas wallets, hatchet sheaths and more. Lots of custom requests have been keeping us very busy indeed. You'll also find Rogue Journeymen apparel, hats, pennants and other brand goods at the shop. Visit us to see the full selection.
