We stock a wide range of quality bicycle accessories and components.
Hastings is a tough area for bicycles. Sea spray, potholes, plenty of hills, bad driving and theft. We focus on hard wearing components that are good value for money.
We use Shimano cassettes and freewheels, our chains are KMC. Schwalbe tyres and tubes. Brake blocks and cables by Jagwire. We avoid cheap unbranded components that won't last.
We also have a good selection of 2nd-hand parts. We try not to throw anything away. If you're after that little do-hicky to fix your bike, there's every chance we might have one.
Topeak make a huge range of bicycle accessories and there's a few things we've seen that has impressed us with it's quality and clever design. We like their pannier racks, multi-tools, pumps and saddle bags.
Who makes the best pannier racks in the world? Tubus do. Yet more fine German engineering. Made from wafer-thin steel tubes, they're tough, look great, work well and the only rack to consider for that grand tour.
We stock the full range of products produced by Green Oil UK. They only use only plant based and sustainably sourced ingredients. Most bicycle lubes contain Teflon (PTFE) which is non-biodegradable and ends up in the food chain, so if you care about the environment, use these products on your bicycle.
Faher specialise in excellent anti-friction lubrication products. The company has been running for 25 years but they have recently moved into the UK market. They produce an excellent chain oil and a spray lube.
Keeping your bicycle clean and well lubed is the nicest thing you can do to your steed, after pumping up the tyres. Too much oil and dirt kills bicycles. Muc-Off produce an amazing array of award winning cleaning, protection and lube products.
We rate Jagwire bakes, cables and outer. We stock their full range of brake shoes and pads. We use their slick stainless steel cables in our bicycle service as we see a lot of corrosion of galvanised cables.
We have a lot of experience working with Sturmey Archer hub gears and have access to their full range of hubs and other components. We've built a lot of wheels around their hubs, often putting 5 speed hub gears on a single speed bicycle. We hold their full range of single speed freewheels, for both wide and narrow chains.
When it comes to bicycle tools, Park Tool have long been regarded as making the best tools you can find. We stock the common tools you'll need, but can order in anything from their full range if you require.
All our inner tubes are by Schwalbe, as we found cheaper brands had a higher rate of failure. Our tubes are £6 each or £9 for long stem. We hold a good stock of Schwalbe tyres to suit most needs, we hold Schwalbe Marathon tyres in nearly every size, as they're great.
Most of the wheels we've built use Mavic rims. There's a good range of options and usually something to suit any build. We particulary like the A319s, a tough rim that's not too heavy and not too exspensive.

"Thank you for fitting that dirty-low-down Hastings gear on my bike. I cycled nearly all the way up the West Hill tonight." - Erica
