Handmade specialty items at Topanga Creek Bicycles

Topanga Creek Bicycles handmade specialty items

We love things that are handmade because it requires creativity, individuality and craftsmanship to produce something that is never identical to the next one. We strongly support the artisan community and you can find many of these unique handmade items at our shop. The popular TCB mugs are made by a local artist in Topanga. Danny, who is a luthier by trade, makes wooden clocks with recycled bicycle components. There are rubber wallets made out of recycled bicycle tubes. You'll also find handmade touring frame bags and related accessories. Visit our shop to see them all.

Custom hand-laced wheels

Don't let the wheels slow you down

Take your bike to the next level with a set of our custom built wheels. We hand lace all custom wheels from scratch starting with a pair of hubs from highly sought-after companies such as Chris King and White Industries. Using Phil Wood Spoke Cutting Machine, we can cut and thread each spoke to any length based on wheel and hub combination. It's then a true balancing act to get each wheel complete round, dished and true to yield a final product that's light-weight, strong, precise and race-ready. Reduced rotational weight means you'll work less with every pedal stroke, thus noticeable gain in efficiency and power. See custom wheel building in action.
