Bike Parts & Components

If you're a dedicated bike user it's vital to have a reliable authorised supplier of parts and components, to keep you and your bike on the road in peak condition. Your supplier must keep up with the latest developments in bike technology, and be able to give you expert advice on what's hot, and what's not. Giant Cannington are authorised dealers for both Shimano and SRAM, and stock most of their high-volume bike parts in our store. What we don't carry in stock can be ordered in for you. And, being avid cyclists ourselves we can advise you on the bike components that are right for you, your bike and your riding style.

Shimano - Since the 1970s Shimano have built their enviable reputation around the principle of offering technical innovation to entry-level and high end customers alike. The latest version of their 105 groupset introduces the 11-speed drivetrain, as well as polymerised cabling and redesigned derailleurs bringing the benefits of smoothness and precision. Shimano pedals now offer a lower stack height (the distance from the centre of the pedal axle to the cleat) for greater pedalling efficiency, and being carbon bodied are lighter than comparable alloy pedals. The sealed cartridge bearings offer protection in the wettest and muddiest conditions. Shimano cleats are colour coded, offering a choice of rotational and lateral float, so you can select the degree of movement that suits you best - your Giant Cannington salesperson will advise you.

SRAM - as the "other" maker of high-end bicycle parts, SRAM have had to try harder. It shows in the quality of their gear, and it shows in their innovations - innovations such as grip and double-tap shifting, which have transformed the riding experience for so many cyclists the world over. From Giant Cannington, you can order your SRAM bike parts online, or come down and see our friendly staff to discuss your needs.
