The Team


Down to 2 of us these days – a sign of the times I guess. Here we are in the work shop on a quiet January day.

We are pretty laid back and take time to listen to your needs in order for you to make an informed decision about any purchases or maintenance that your bike needs. We believe we are respected for our opinions and expertise as we have plenty of returning  happy customers. And that’s what we want to see. We do our best to provide the best possible customer service at a great price. Between Chris and Colin over 35yrs of experience in the trade. We will listen to your needs and show you our products and give you the help to decide, but not in a pressured sales environment. If we believe something is not suitable we will tell you!!



Chris Warburton, Owner 

Chris, I started Knobblies Bikes in March 1998 on his own. I moved from  Chemical engineering research to bikes. Bikes have always been a big part of my life from an early age inspired by my mother’s love of riding. I am still involved in all aspects of running the shop, he is a keen cyclist and former triathlete and will have a go at most things.

Colin was the trail guru behind the KNOBBLER a 56km charity mountain bike ride across East Devon. Now an annual event.
