Love your bicycle

Lots of accessories at High Tide Cycles This area is tough on bicycles. Sea spray, potholes, 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 tubes, no gunk, no tubeless. 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 that might have value. If you're after that little do-hicky to fix your bike, there's every chance we might have one.


Busch + Muller

Busch + Muller Busch + Muller make some great bicycle lights, including quality lights for rear racks and ebikes. Yet another one of our brands that sells itself on the fact they're "Made in Germany".

Cat Eye

Cat Eye We hold a wide range of Cat Eye lights in stock all year round. Good lights at a good price point.


Ergon We love the Ergon GP1 grips and always have them in stock in various sizes. They're very comfortable and dampen road vibration which can cause aches and pains.


Ortlieb Ortlieb make high quality 100% waterproof bicycle bags and backpacks. We stock their new 'bike-packing' range and a few other bits and pieces.


Pletscher Want a kick-stand that actually holds your bicycle up? Want it not to break? Want a satisfying 'phunk' sound each time you use it? Then you want a Pletscher kick-stand.


SKS If you're going to put mudguards on your bicycle, and we think you should, then make sure they're from SKS, the finest German mudguards not very much money can buy.


Topeak Topeak make a huge range of bicycle accessories and there's a few things we've seen that impressed us with the quality and clever design. We like their pannier racks, multi-tools, pumps and saddle bags.


Tubus Who makes the best pannier racks in the world? Tubus do. German engineering. Made from steel tubes, they're tough, look great, work well and the only rack to consider for that grand tour. We don't hold them in stock but order when necessary.

Cleaning & Lubes

Green Oil

High Tide Cycles stock the full range of Green Oil UK products Green Oil UK 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.


High Tide Cycles stock the full range of Muc-Off cleaners and lubes Keeping your bicycle clean is the nicest thing you can do to your steed, after pumping the tyres... Dirt kills bicycles. We sell most of the Muc-Off range of cleaning and protection products.


ProGold ProGold ProLink chain lube is an interesting product, keeps your chain clean and lubed. We always have some in stock as some of our customers won't use anything else!



Jagwire We rate Jagwire pads, cables and outer. We stock cables, outer, brake shoes and pads. We use their stainless steel cables in our bicycle service as we see a lot of corrosion of cheaper cables.


Kool-Stop We stock a wide range of the Kool-Stop brake pads. Regarded for a long time as the best rim brake pads out there.


KMC We use KMC chains, the toughest chains on the market? Maybe? They do an 'eco-friendly anti-rust' chain that we're starting to love. We're running it on a few test bikes at the moment.


Shimano We have access to the full range of Shimano components and spares. Our standard replacement cassettes, freewheels, cranksets are Shimano. Shimano stuff just works. Go with it.

Sturmey Archer

Sturmey Archer 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 freewheels, for both wide and narrow chains.



High Tide Cycles stock Abus locks Top quality German locks, often come out top in 'how hard is it to smash locks' tests. We stock a few bits and pieces but happy to order in anything from their range if you want something more expensive / specific.


High Tide Cycles stock Pitlock Pitlock make the best component locks. Don't want to worry about your wheels / seat post / bars etc. being stolen? Then Pitlock is the brand to go for. The only way we can get these off without the key is some very difficult angle grinding!


We stock common 'bikey' tools, a couple of multi-tools and the best chain breaker money can buy. We can source tools if you need something special, or there's every chance that your local community bike workshop might have one.

Park Tool

Park Tool When it comes to bicycle tools, Park Tool are the big boys. They've got the range. Market penetration. The colour blue. Some of their stuff is rubbish, some we use every day. We sell that stuff.


Pedros There's a few Pedro's tools that are way better than the Park Tool equivalent, so we stock those. Pedro's tyre levers are the best you're ever going to use, and we've used a lot.

Tyres & Tubes


High Tide Cycles stocks ContinentalWe're liking Continental tyres, great range of practical tyres for various uses and great value for money.


Panaracer Panaracer make some great tyres, Japanese quality tyres. The Pasela is a particular favourite.


Schwalbe All our inner tubes are by Schwalbe, as we found cheaper brands had a higher rate of failure. Our tyres are a mix of Schwalbe, Panaracer and Continental. What works, works. We sell a lot of Schwalbe Marathon tyres, they're great.

Stans No Tubes

Stans No Tubes We stock a wide range of Stans No Tubes tubeless kit; sealent, rim tape, tyre repair tools, valves etc. Stans, the orginal and best tubeless solution.



Mavic Most of the wheels we build use Mavic rims. There's a good range of options and usually something to suit. We particularly like the A319s, tough, not too heavy and not too pricey.


Sapim Unless you've got some very odd spoke requirements then we'll build your wheels with stainless steel Sapim spokes. Commonly regarded as the best spokes on the market.
