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!
This nice couple came by the other day to collect their brand new bicycles, and took them for a ride om a beautiful, sunny day in Copenhagen. The photos are taken close to Langelinie and the upcoming renewed Nordhavn area, a new part of Copenhagen that in the next 20 years or so will turn into a green, sustainable and bicycle-friendly residential and commercial area.

Mr. Berto, a native of Mexico City, came by and bought seven Sögreni Bells for his friends. Mexico City is one of those cities in the world that is quite bicycle-unfriendly, but things are changing, as people realize that cars easily can be replaced with better, cleaner, faster og more fun means of transportation – like a bicycle.
This is one of the bicycles we finished this month, a very grey Sögreni Classic ordered my Mr. Christopher Hanill, a native Copenhagener. As with the Classic, the handlebar is straight, adding to the minimalistic design. The customer opted for a black Brooks of England saddle to match the black Sögreni handles, and the aluminium mudguards, the painted lock and aluminium Sögreni pedals complete the picture of a very elegant bicycle, ready for the street.
We are truly proud of our city, so if you are planning to visit just one European capital this year, why not us? We have good food, good beer, great looking people and of course lots of bicycles everywhere!

Søren Sögreni recently came back from a prolonged visit to Cuba, the perfect place to escape from harsh Scandinavian winter. Cuba is full of funny, strange and often home-built means of transportation, including bicycles. Enjoy the cute childrens bicycles, the … Continue reading
