The story behind Warphen Bicycles is not a typical one; however, in our industry, the tales behind the brands rarely are. Warphen Claro is an ICU nurse in Southern California by profession and a bike designer by passion. Born in the Philippines, Warphen could be found tinkering in his father’s metal shop, helping him fix tractors or whatever else rolled into the shop. He even had a passion for designing and crafting weapons, such as swords and knives.
