At J E James, we know the full package doesn’t always suit everyone, and everyone's preferences are different. Whilst being built to handle the discipline they’re designed for, bikes are still fragile in places and need to be treated with care. Unfortunately things also damage with wear and tear, and accidents happen. This means there is an endless list of frame spares cyclists may possibly need. You may find yourself needing items such as rear mech hangers, these are designed to be breakable as they’re an inexpensive part to replace compared to the derailleur they’re attached to, which you may also need at some point too. We have a variety of drivetrains with new cassettes, for different gear ratios. This may need replacing due to user wear, or you want to upgrade to get a smoother ride. Spare levers, stems and seatposts are often in high demand too, these items add to the comfort of your bike and the ride, and can make a big difference.
All of these components will drastically improve your riding experience, and should any of it need replacing, you will feel like your bike had a lease of life when replacing a part. Lets face it, when we know something isn't quite right, it doesn't ride the same. This is why we hope to stock almost everything a bike could ever need.On the less mechanical, moving parts side, we also have a selection of frame protectors to spare your frame and paint job from the bite of the chain slap when covering rocky ground, and the rub from cables along the steerer. We have plenty of cable housing and cables, which need replacing the more you ride. And for the teeny tiny items that get easily lost and never found, spare bolts, cable ends and those bits you didn't realise you needed until they’re gone. Whatever your steed needs, big or small, we will certainly have it.
