About Me

Hi my name is Chris Hope but in the cycling industry people know me as ‘Beard’.  Working on bikes and cycling has always been my passion and its what I wanted to do from a very young age.

I have worked in the cycle industry for 17 years, gaining valuable experience whilst being employed by reputable companies such as Woodrup, Chevin Cycles, Xpedia and most recently All Terrain Cycles.

Adam Kharchi

Top dude. Thanks for coming out at the drop of a hat to fix the BB on my commuter bike
Great service.
I’d recommend Chris to my best mates for sure.

Jonny Submersible

Chris was recommended by several members of albaRosa and he has gone above and beyond sorting out the well worn headset on my Cube; rust had obscured the markings making it hard to see what the part number was. After his suppliers struggled to identify the bit he got in touch with a bearing specialist, sourced a replacement and fitted it – on a Saturday.

He has just dropped it back complete with lighter and smoother steering than I remember ready for the road and many more (s)miles!

Simon Owen

Excellent service. Done 80 miles since the service and it feels amazing. He fixed my issue with my headset and made the handling of my bike a lot better. It also doesn’t sound like a bag of spanners anymore.

Price was spot on, as I paid for the full service and got replacement cables included where other places cables are charged separately.

Would definitely recommend Chris.

Lee Mcgovern

Been looking for someone to service my Focus Cayo Evo 3.0 for a while and i have been well impressed with the service i’ve received from chris . His website compliments his business and ” does what it says on the tin ! “. Free collection/ delivery service was a god send for me and bike was back good to go in 24hrs looking great with the new wheels…usually waited 4/5 days and then had to chase other people that i’ve used previously . Good friendly advice n prompt service , what more do you need ??….i will be recommending Hopey Bicycle Repairs to all my fellow cycling buddies !!

Mick Turner

Had the full service, got the bike back within 24 hours and is now riding like new once again. Would recommend over any of the local ones I’ve used previously.

Really useful and practical cycle maintenance course, thank you!

And a final extra few words after the third and final course…

Bloomin marvellous! Great to be in an environment where I felt comfortable asking questions. Perfect level for me too, thank you. I now know what I’ll feel comfortable tackling and have found someone I’ll be able to trust to fix the trickier bits. Very informative, helpful and fabulous to be able to learn what to do on my own bike. Really glad I joined in on all three courses. THANK YOU!
