Road Bikes

These bikes are for fast and far and Outpost has a deep range of options. Don’t be fooled by the small seats! When properly fitted by our staff, a road bike can be very comfortable. We’ll get the fit right so you can feel the miles roll by.


Off-Road Bikes

Mountain Bikes

The sturdy frame, good shocks and wide, nubby, stable wheels of the mountain bike take on gravel roads and off-road riding with ease. While the thrill of single-track or challenging climbs and downhills is what makes mountain biking its own sport, many mountain bikes belong to those who simple enjoy riding through nature.


Hybrid Bikes

Fitness / Hybrid

Fitness or hybrid bikes are perfect for riding around the neighborhood or on a rails-to-trails type ride. The key for these bikes is comfort. If you avoid your bike because it is uncomfortable, know that these bikes make riding a pleasure.

Our Primary Bicycle Brands

We Trust These Brands:

Trek

Trek is the No. 1 selling bike brand in North America, perhaps due to the fact it employs more engineers than all other bike companies combined. To this day, the family-owned Wisconsin-based business, founded in 1976, takes pride in producing bikes for the whole family and for all riding types.

Specialized

Specialized is North America’s No. 2 selling brand, owned by 63-year-old Mike Synard who founded the company in 1974. The fact that Mike rides two to six miles every day before heading into work makes us understand why Specialized is known as a passionate bike brand. Specialized produced the first endurance road bike—the now world-famous race-winning Roubaix.

Electra

How does an independent bike company like Electra thrive for 20 years? Well, it helps to have some pretty sweet bikes, but it’s more than that. It’s a basic outlook on life that everything can always be made better. Cooler. Awesomer. We’re innovators at heart. Artists in our soul. We’re a forward-facing company. Always looking for the next place to ride. The next innovation. The next sunny day. Not only is it more fun that way, but it’s helped us stay on the leading edge of the industry.

Community Rides, Classes & Trails

Free and welcoming to all, Outpost Tuesday Night Rides provide road bike cyclists of all levels a chance to join friends and make friends through the fun and safety of group riding and post-ride refueling. With more than 100 cyclists joining us some days, we consider this to be one of Michiana’s most popular riding groups. Routes and maps are organized weekly by Outpost staff, who also lead the individual groups.

  • When: Ride begins at 6pm sharp.
  • Where: Most rides* depart from Mary Frank/Northpoint schools in Granger, IN.
  • Riding Groups: Each week, riders who join in will have the options of joining one of five groups—A, AA, AA-Love, AAA or Madone Rides—categorized by distances and varying speeds.
  • Demos: Free bike demos on carbon-fiber Trek and Specialized road bikes are offered at the rides that leave from Northpoint. If interested, come early and bring your bike and shoes, so Outpost staff can change out your pedals.
  • Sign up: Sign up for the Monday noon e-mail for the week’s ride details… and that extra motivation that will get you there.
  • Socialize: For some, the best part of TNR is the post-ride carbo reload. Granger rides meet at Yesterdays Food & Spirits on the patio—a great way to relax, meet people and top off an active night.

Legendary Tuesday Night Rides

Peppered into the Tuesday Night Ride schedule are the Legendary Rides that explore routes from different restaurant sites in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan. These points may include Mosers in New Carlisle, Evil Czech in Mishawaka, Tapistry Brewery in Bridgman, MI, Woodfire Grill in Dowagiac, MI, and Round Barn Brewery in Baroda, MI.

The Legendary Ride schedule is planned in early spring and will be announced in the Monday Night e-mails.

Bike Your Age

Challenge yourself this riding season to bike your age. For every hour you ride, you earn a “year” in your age. Register in-store at Outpost Sports or at any of the Tuesday Night Rides.

Mountain Bike Trails

Surprised to hear about mountain biking in Michiana? We have great trails and encourage you to get out and try them. The Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association (NIMBA) is a cornerstone of Michiana mountain biking. NIMBA hosts an annual family friendly race series and has developed a number of outstanding trails in the area. We encourage you to support NIMBA as a member and even volunteer your time as they continue to create and maintain local trails.

COMPUTRAINER:

Train for Power & Speed

Join friends, meet friends, but only race against yourself. For 10 years, area cyclists have enjoyed winter group power training sessions at the Outpost CompuTrainer Center. With our new ErgVideo workouts, individuals challenge themselves and track their own progress motivated by the group setting. On the big screen, savor the passing sites of say … the Col du Tourmalet in France, Passo di Gavia in Italy or Majorca of Spain.

For seasoned and new-to-the-sport cyclists. Coaches at CompuTrainer Center are veteran riders with the experience to help you get the most from your bike, your effort and the session. Participants bring their own bikes to connect to the system so coaches also check for bike fit and provide personal tips for becoming a stronger, faster and more efficient cyclist. Don’t be shy, they will encourage you to ask questions!
