Are there any other online companies that specialise in good value bicycle components etc apart from the big 3, Chain Reaction, Evans and Wiggle ?

As usual i am always looking to save as much cash as possible :oops: :)

There's a huge online market to choose from. Most of them trade through Ebay as well which is a quick way to compare prices. Generally, I've always found high on bikes good on price and service: http://www.highonbikes.com/

I rate Planet-X, if they've got stock of what you need, they tend to be good on price and great on service.

+1 for both of the above - Ribble are good to but really you're just better of sticking what you want into Google and trawling through the suppliers.

Yup, another vote from me for them. Good value and they seem to mail the goods out very promptly.

Star Cycles in Tenbury Wells (as well as eBaying they have their own site too:
http://www.starcyclespares.co.uk/contact-us-2-w.asp) are very good for small spares, especially brake and gear cables.
