Caren Hartley

Caren is currently one of the few female frame builders in Britain but she started out studying jewellery and metalwork at the Royal College of Art and worked as a sculptor on large scale public art projects.  As a dedicated cycling commuter Caren decided to build her own frame to fit her and to her own specifications.  She enjoyed the experience so much that she has taken her skills into the world of bespoke bike building where she is forging an award winning career making beautiful bikes under her Hartley Cycles brand.
