Kick starting everyday success

Carolyn Creswell founded Carman’s Fine Foods as an eighteen year old uni student with just $1000. Today, with the help from our Private Clients team, Carman’s is now a multi-million dollar business. Carolyn has grown the business by working with her Private Clients advisor to broaden Carman’s product offering, spread the customer base and number of suppliers and improve business systems. Carolyn uses us as a sounding board and as support for many of her decisions, both business and personal. With a growing international business built on muesli, it’s clearly a mix that works.

Have you ever had a bike fitting: Yes. At Hampton Cycles. A great setup and worth it particularly as the geometry of the Look and Venge were so different. I later also had SoleStar inners fitted and these are awesome. What are your: a) short-term cycling aspirations: Win a race! b) long-term cycling aspirations: Win more races! ‌actually, one will do‌just so that I can re-live them over, and over, and over again with my children and anyone who will buy me coffee if/when I get too old and crusty to ride.

The Venge was the most popular choice. We were looking for a bike that was a great looking race oriented bike that also presented good value for money. How’s the ride: Very race focused. Stiff as hell, fast and lively to ride. Probably not the most comfortable bike on the market, but it is an excellent race oriented bike. Awesome in criteriums, road races and for an aero frame, it climbs well too.
