They have all of those at ACE hardware near me. Otherwise they have tires and tubes at walmart, and most of the time I buy cables and levers off of amazon.com, but you might be able to find those somewhere around town.

If you're in the UK and don't have a decent local bike shop there are lots of good on-line sellers with large product ranges, some of whom do free delivery.

Try these for starters:

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/
http://www.parker-international.co.uk/

If you know exactly what you want, try Google Shopping to find the lowest prices for specific products: http://www.google.co.uk/prdhp?hl=en&tab=wf
