Finally got hold of a 29er of my very own. (Thanks to the thieving git that had it away with my beloved, if aesthetically challenged, hybrid).

Can anyone recommend a good UK supplier that doesn't lunge for a silver crucifix at the mention of a 29er?

Tyres and tubes are a real problem, in the UK.

That is funny:) Very good imagery.

Several UKers post here and I am sure they can be of assistance.

I got a set of IRC Notos from one of your countrymen Rob Dean years back with red sidewalls that were never made available here in the states for some reason. Not that that has anything to do with your request, I just had to add some 29" content. Good luck and enjoy!

Check out www.bonthronebikes.co.uk I bought my GF rig and spare bontrager tyres from there I paid £600 for my rig and everywhere else was seling them for £700 - £750.

Also www.wiggle.co.uk have a few 29er bits such as Karate Monkey Stuff and the odd set of tyres.

As custom builders are concerned Solitude Cycles is the only one that springs to mind

As for tubes, I just use larger volume 26inchers. Put a bit of air in them before you mount them and they work fine.
