I know I really shouldn't and it is sort of advertising.

But today my shop was given Hope Full Dealer status...

That put a big smile on my face!

I just had to sell enough of their stuff! :D

I sell at same prices as CRC but Danish postal rates are a bitch.... and VAT is 25% here so sales to the UK would be a bit stupid as rule of thumb 8D.

Maybe one day when I get bigger volume and postal discounts though - who knows?

Well done. What does that actually give you as a retailer though? Any goodies?

As a Hope fanboy, it makes me feel valued as it's a sign they're pleased with my efforts :)

Also means I can compete better in my local market for reasons I don't want to disclose in a public forum :P

Are you the only hope dealer in your area?

Only one for many miles around...... And hope it stays that way!

2 in Jutland, a few near Copenhagen.

But sales of hubs, hoops and custom wheel builds are just getting bigger and bigger every month...... Even doing mail order for return custom out of town.

Even have guys that work at other shops that are buying from me...

Also one of the few dealers in Denmark that will happily work on DT forks. As far as I know I'm the only Pace and Middleburn dealer in all of Denmark.

But ain't it nice to see an expat doing something for the UK bike industry overseas! Also selling Juice fork oil products, Muc-off and High Five. Just wish Goodridge, Halo and Charge had bigger importers.....

You have been working hard.
