UK Online Bike shops
By user12625760 on May 03, 2005
I got asked where I shop on line for bike bits. Well in no particular order here is the list:
http://www.wiggle.co.uk Have always had good service for them (though they are to blame for the current lack of a speedometer which I'm chasing). Update: 8th May 2005: I got the URL wrong and have corrected it, Thanks Calum. Also the speedometer situation has been resolved to my satisfaction
http://bikeplus.co.uk The old CTC shop. No complaints at all, ever, plus they stock more esoteric things like the Var Tyre lever.
http://www.gbcycles.co.uk/ Another name for bikplus as far as I can see.
http://deesidecycles.com Possibly my favourite on-line shop entirely down to them answering their email quickly and being helpful. The web site has recently been “upgraded” and I've not ordered from them with the new site yet.
http://www.pearsoncycles.co.uk/ The shop that I used as I kid and build the frame for my trusty tourer. Get some great deals on clothing here sometimes.
http://www.sigmasport.co.uk/ My LBS, pricey and only really for road bits. I have bought on line from them though. Plus they have
suckered me into buyingsold me three bikes.
http://www.sjscycles.com/ Great shop, but pricey, however if you want a triplet then this is the place to go. I have no regrets about the triplet. They also stock more esoteric things.
As always it's best to shop around as prices vary wildly but I've been happy with the above as of this time.
