When you drive through Topanga Canyon you will immediately be awed by the lush and forest-like surrounding. It seems so remote but yet our shop is only 12 miles from the Santa Monica Pier. We have chosen this location for our shop not only for its natural serenity but also for many of the prime mountain bike trails found in all of Southern California. Every day we are amazed at the beauty of this place and feel very lucky to continue doing what we love to do — riding bikes and helping people in the community to enjoy riding as well. Read more
This is a beautiful shop that feels like home. They offered us fresh coffee and homemade coffee cake immediately upon entering, which were both delicious. Their leather items are extremely well made (belts, camera straps, mug holders, etc.), and their staff is friendly and knowledgeable about bikes, leather works, and biking (they have a regular mountain bike ride on Saturday mornings "fueled by" fresh banana bread!). Their t-shirts are stylish and/or funny, too!Original recommendation
Bike enthusiasts at heart. Welcoming to renters and first time mountain bikers. Laid back and easy to work with. They definitely know the area well for trails which is important for mountain biking around those topanga mountains.
Topanga Creek Outpost is so much more than just the best bike shop around. You will just have to come in to see what I mean. I cannot give enough thanks and priase to Chris and the staff at TCO for going beyond the call of duty to help me get the right bike. Eternally grateful. Topanga Creek Outpost Rules!!! :)Original recommendation
This shop is the pinnacle of cool. The people are great, but by virtue of your interest in bikes, you are welcomed into the club with open arms. The shop is great, and feels like you have walked past the rope cordon at a museum into the exhibit but with bike gear mixed in with antique horseshoes. The bikes are great, with everything up to full suspension to satisfy any customer. ...Original recommendation
Great spot to hang out and talk bikes. They have a unique selection of gear plus stuff ONLY FOUND in Topanga. Chris is an amiable and passionate human, and hires quality staff. I hope this bike shops is around for years to come.Original recommendation
