Inside Business: Epic Sports

Posted: Updated:

They started out 10-years-ago as a small boutique bicycle shop in downtown Bismarck, but quickly outgrew that location and moved to a strip mall on the north side. Now, Epic Sports is taking off the training wheels, as they recently opened a 7,000 square foot store located by the Memorial Bridge. 

"We've been around a little over 10-years. First, a location downtown and then about 10-years at the location we were at previously. We moved here because the location's fantastic," says Jared Fuchs of Epic Sports.

Fuchs says the biking world has seen a lot of changes. After all, who would have thought you could sell mountain bikes in North Dakota?

"In the last five-years almost everything in the biking world has changed. Specifically, in mountain biking. The wheel sizes have changed and evolved," says Fuchs.

And, although no one wants to think about snow anymore, bike riding has grown into a year-round experience in North Dakota.

"We do have bikes that accommodate people during the winter. Whether they're studded tires or fat bikes, which are the wide tires you can ride in the snow," says Fuchs.

But it's not just about the bikes. Epic Sports also carries a complete line of outdoor athletic equipment and apparel.

"We're a triathlon store, so we sell bikes, swimwear, shoes and apparel," says Fuchs

And biking isn't just for kids. Fuchs says they have customers of all ages and from all walks of life.

"The idea that it's a younger customer may not be totally accurate. Our demographic has a lot of middle age people, and we sell a lot of bikes for people in that demographic," says Fuchs

In addition to selling and servicing bikes, Epic Sports offers gear for other indoor and outdoor activities, from competition swimming to long-distance running. This summer they will have kayaks and canoes available for sale and rent, which should complement their location near the Missouri River.
