PIVOT BICYCLES Specialized-flare

Since launching Pivot in 2007 Pivot has continually pushed the boundaries of what is possible in bike design and technology of mountain bikes. From

We are a technology and performance-driven company but advancing technology is not why we’re here.  We never want to lose sight of what we do and why we do it.  Our goal is simply to build the best-performing cycling products in the world.  It is not good enough to be one of the best.  We want to be THE best in every category we enter and we are confident that whether you buy a Pivot based on a review or test ride, you’ll experience our dedication, passion, engineering, and attention to detail that makes Pivot bikes and products the best.  If you currently own a Pivot, then you already know that they climb better, descend better, corner better and simply feel better than any other bike on the market. This same drive to be the best extends to our customer service and support. We love our customers and our interaction and relationships with our fellow Pivot riders fuels our fire.


We carry a wide variety of biking accessories and apparel, focusing on top-quality brands. If you need water bottles, bottle cages, tools, racks, bike parts, bike computers — just about anything — we have it! Our own staff selects and uses what we offer, putting it through “real-world” tests and vouching for its quality. We only stock what we feel good about using ourselves, and we’ll never recommend or sell something to you that we wouldn’t stand behind. Some of the brands you’ll find at Epic Sports include Specialized, Pearl Izumi, Louis Garneau, and so many more!

We also have a great selection of nutrition and energy gels, perfect for a race or a long ride. We feature Hammer Nutrition, Honey Stinger (which uses real North Dakota honey), and Clif Bars.


We offer a comprehensive selection of bikes, gear, apparel, and services in house. Stop on in, grab a coffee at the newly opened Mighty Missouri & BC Bagels location, and have a look around. We love to talk shop, hear your stories and provide our customers with the highest quality information available.
