Bike Parts

If you want your bicycle to function well you will need to ensure that all your bike parts are up to the job.

Bike Parts Guide

Sometimes we need replacement parts because components on our bike have become damaged or worn out, but at other times we might want to replace them just to improve the overall performance of the bike.

The number of bike components available is immense and this means that choosing between them isn't always easy. When faced with a lot of choice it can really help if there are reviews of the different parts so that you can weight up the pros and cons of each option.

Covering every bike component in the world would be a gigantic project but our aim here is to provide details of all the ones you are likely to need.

  • Shimano is a Japanese cycle parts manufacturer that has been in business since 1921. This company also sells some other products but it is bike parts that they are most known for producing. It is one of the top bike components suppliers in the world and believed to have half of the global market share for this type of product. This innovative company has been responsible for producing such ground breaking products as the Biospace chain rings and Hyperglide HG.
  • Campagnolo is an Italian company that is known for their high tech bicycle components. This bike part manufacturer has been in business since 1933 and likes to sell their components as part of group sets – a number of related products as part of one package. This company likes to experiment with different materials and quite a few of their products are made from carbon materials.
  • SRAM is a Chicago based manufacturer of bike components and has been in business since 1987. Their components have been used by some of the top cyclists around the world and the company is always looking for new innovations.
