Westcountry Recumbents UK Shop

This is where UK customers can buy stuff for their trikes - tyres and tubes, chain lube, Ventisit seat pads and Greenspeed spares We regret that Greenspeed have ceased producing the hub brake wheel for Brompton bicycles, so we are no longer able to supply this item. Customers from European Union countries other than the UK should go to the EU Shop - the stock is the same, but unfortunately it costs rather more to send things outside the UK, so the prices are a little higher.
Lots of useful technical info about tyre sizes on this PDF from the Schwalbe website.

Shop Update

The shop has been updated with a new cart system, which has meant an extensive overhaul of the pages. I hope I’ve put everything back where it belongs now, but if you do find any mistakes or broken links please Email me and I’ll fix it as soon as possible.


On April 1st 2013, Royal Mail changed the way they charge for parcels, to take into account their dimensions as well as their weight. This means that many wired tyres are now too large to send via Royal Mail and we will need to switch to a courier service for larger parcels. For logistical reasons,this may mean that parcels take slightly longer to arrive. It also means that for most tyres, shipping costs for individual tyres have increased but also that shipping for multiple tyres will be the same price as for one, so we have therefore separated the shipping element of the price of our wired tyres to reflect this. We apologise for this price increase, but it is, unfortunately, unavoidable. Also, our preferred courier does not deliver to some areas of the UK, so we regret that we will need to send parcels to such areas via Parcelforce, with accordingly higher shipping charges. This includes, but is not limited to, Northern Ireland, the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, the Channel Islands and, for reasons which are inexplicable to me, parts of Hampshire.


We’ve also listed some of the most popular Greenspeed spares on this part of the site, but don’t worry if the part you need isn’t listed here - we can order anything that Greenspeed have in stock for you.


If there’s something you’d like us to stock that isn’t on these pages, please drop us an email and let us know. Suggestions are always welcome, although we can’t promise we’ll implement all of them.
