The other day, a man knocked on the door at Skt Peders Stræde and said that he had a Sögreni bicycle that needed a small service check before the upcoming summer season. “Of course” we replied and got outside to see the patient. And there it was: a mid-80s Classic Sögreni Racer in excellent condition, still running fine.
Please notice that is was equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record crankset, shifters and other small parts – all original and all 100% functional. Quality never goes out of style, and we are certain that this beauty will be running for another 30 or so years.
Currently, we do not sell Sögreni Racers as a part of the inventory found in the webshop, but we can of course build any bicycle you are dreaming of – including Campagnolo parts. Just come by the shop or give us a call.
Seattle is known for a lot of things: the Space Needle, Starbucks Coffee and the Boeing factories in Renton. And now also for one of the sleekest bicycles in the state of Washington. It belongs to Mr. Mark Williams, who ordered the Sögreni Pedals in aluminium + aluminium a while ago for his Bianchi bicycle. Looks great, thanks for sharing!
Danish photographer Dennis Stenild came by the store together with two young models to borrow a few Sögreni bicycles for a photoshoot. This was the result, and the next time you sit comfortably in your seat heading for Frankfurt, New York or Rio de Janeiro and you fly with Lufthansa, the inflight magazine in the seatpocket in front of you just might contain these pictures, as they were shot for the Lufthansa Magazine.
Phil from San Francisco wrote us the other day: “I finally had time to install a new custom bell that I got from your shop on a recent visit to Copenhagen. We loved visiting your city and touring around on bikes! Thanks for the memory that I can now use on my daily commute to work”. What a beautiful combination, and especially the chain is a nice touch. Thanks for sharing, Phil!
Dear Mr. Tsutsumi started sending pictures of his already two year old Sögreni Bell in copper about two years ago, and now he is back with another update. The bell is aging with grace. Thanks for the photo! The older posts can be seen here and here.
Dane Frederikke Brasch is living in London, but of course chooses a Sögreni bicycle for her daily trips around the city. She also runs a blog about running, fashion, street style and lots more.
Good stuff, check it out here!
A story of a holiday romance with a Sogreni bicycle in Copenhagen one summer and how the gentleman returns there in December to bring his new bike home. Very charming article! cphmade.org
French travel publication Petit Futé has included Sögreni in their 2015 edition. Our french is quite bad, but “Voilà plus de trente ans que Søren s’impose comme le créateur de vélos personnalisés. Les vélos de cette enseigne ultra renommée à Copenhague deviennent des oeuvres d’art, des objets uniques puisque chacun peut fabriquer, imaginer son propre vélo. Les pièces sont assemblées à la main avec les meilleurs matériaux, et une attention toute particulière est portée au design. Le temple du vélo sur mesure. Mais cela a un prix, bien sûr”…translates into something like
“For over thirty years Søren has established itself as the creator of custom bikes. The bikes of this ultra-famous brand in Copenhagen become artworks, unique items since everyone can make his own bike. The pieces are hand assembled with the finest materials, and special attention is paid to design. The custom bike temple. But this has a price, of course…”
Thanks for listing us!
Talented Danish bloggers Christian Thisted and Klaes Vangsgaard are running this site. “We will write about people of craftsmanship, expertise, inspiration and achievements. We celebrate the warmhearted and the extraordinary”. This is what they wrote about Sögreni just a few weeks ago. jacquesbaroque.com/sogreni
Mr. Clayton Cook purchased a set of Sögreni Copper Pedals, but he had a plan how to make them look a little older. Mr Cook writes: “Here are some pictures of your copper peddles. I love old “green” copper so, I found a recipe on the internet about how to artificially age copper quickly so it will look old! Basically it is a mixture of ammonia, salt and lemon juice. One of my favorite details about artificially aging the copper was that the peddles got shiny where they contact the soles of my shoes”. Nice tip if you want your bicycle to look more vintage – thanks for the pictures!
