Ammonia, salt and lemon juice.

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!

Christopher and Anastasia

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.

Seven happy friends

foto 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.

Very grey

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.
