Love your bicycle

Lots of accessories at High Tide Cycles We stock a wide range of quality bicycle accessories and components.

We use Shimano cassettes and freewheels, our chains are from Wippermann. Schwalbe tyres and tubes. Brake blocks and cables by Jagwire. We avoid cheap unbranded components that won't last.
