Site selling inexpensive bike gear?
« on: July 29, 2019, 09:44:25 PM »
Within the last week I was reading a thread about a guy with an expensive bicycle racing/training habit somewhere on this forum. Can't seem to find it now.

Somewhere in the thread someone mentioned that there was a cheap website to buy bike parts, etc. I think it was a site from the UK which has surprisingly low prices.

Anyway, I now find myself needing to buy a lot of inner tubes for my bike, and would appreciate that link, or other advice about sourcing cheap bike replacement parts.

Suggestions?

I bought these last time - https://www.wiggle.com/schwalbe-road-inner-tube/

I was using Continental tubes, and had a lot of issues with leaky/faulty valves, and way too many flats. I run them with Conti GP4000s tires.

I also bought these for my summer wheels - https://www.wiggle.com/lifeline-road-inner-tube/
They're a lot cheaper, but so far I've had no problems with them

You’re probably thinking about probikekit. They’re out of the Channel Islands I believe. Ive used them. Prices are very good. Selection is kind of so-so but with some really interesting stuff you don’t see the US. Delivery is slow compared to Amazon, but not bad.
