AGENCY FUNCTION:  Put simply, at the Hartford Bicycle Studio we rebuild, restore, and recycle bikes. But we don’t just slap a new chain and tires on a rusty Huffy. Our artists strive to create something independently beautiful in every creation. We hire local artists to paint your bike so that it breaks away from the crowd with the colors and design of your choosing, or, you may choose a bike already completed by one of our skilled painters. One of our goals is to do our part in aiding the growth of the Hartford arts scene by showcasing the artwork of local artists at our studio and in gallery showings. We work to promote local events and partner with like-minded businesses to enhance our culture and our city.
