Last week was good – fantastic weather, happy people in the streets enjoying the Copenhagen summer, and we also managed to finish a whole bunch of bicycles in the same time. Sometimes you keep on working on the same bicycle … Continue reading →
Danish publishing giant Aller Media has just released The Nordic Courier, a lifestyle magazine for iPad, only possible to read if you download it in iTunes. In Japanese, and aimed at the Scandinavian-design-crazy consumer market. Sögreni is (of course!) one … Continue reading →
Andy is an old friend of and employee at Sögreni, and a few months ago he came along, bringing along an old bicyle frame and a few parts, probably about fifty years old or so. Andy wanted us to restore and build a completely new bicycle out of this heap of…interesting bicycle parts, and this is the result!
The perfect transportation machine for the city, where you easily can get home with your child sitting in front, and a big load of groceries in the same time. Notice the rims painted in the same colour as the frame, that detail really makes this bicycle truly elegant. And it might be hard to see, but there is also an electric engine hidden in the central metal box.
If you have a dream about some crazy or just unique bicycle that you want to come true, well everything is possible. Just send us an e-mail. Andy’s bicycle took about 12 weeks all in all from start to finish.
The new boutique hotel SP34 – guess what it stands for – just opened it’s doors in Sankt Peders Stræde, just a few houses away from the shop. Legendary Danish design company Georg Jensen held a meeting at the hotel the other day, and one of the extremely limited edition Sögreni/Georg Jensen bicycles, made in october 2008 and including a Sögreni Bell in sterling silver, was on display. There are only 14 copies ever made.
We are happy to welcome this new hotel in our cosy street, and it is the perfect place to stay if you plan to visit Copenhagen and the shop. That way, you do not have to carry all the things you bought in the shop that far to your hotel room. http://www.brochner-hotels.dk/our-hotels/sp34/
The first guided bicycle tour this season was a success – judging from these smiling visitors and honoured guests from Italy. This is actually after the tour, so something must have worked out right! No, honestly, it was a great tour, including the known and not-so-known landmarks of Copenhagen. Join yourself, we roll every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10AM from now and until the very last days of August. See how and where a little further down in this blog.
It has been quite a long time since we corrected our prices, but now is the time. Pure inflation is one thing, rising prices for raw materials and shipping are also part of the story. We will gradually increase all prices on all accessories throughout the next couple of weeks, we do not know exactly how much, but somewhere between 10-15% is the ball park number. Also bicycles will be getting more expensive, basic prices will be raised with about 60-75 euros. Actually are the prices you pay in the shop already raised on bicycles, but we wanted to give you, the online community, a fair amount of time to get your Sögreni bicycle before the new pricelist applies. So shop now! We ship to (almost) all countries and territories.
Copenhagen might not be a metropolis like London or New York, but our city is still too big to see in its entirety by walking on your own two feet. Besides, Copenhagen is famously known for being a green capital with myriads of cyclists on our endless miles of bike lanes – so why not experience Copenhagen on a bike like a native? CPHmade offers you a two hour bike tour with an English speaking guide who will show you around the city on a late morning tour. You rent the bike from us, we show you the way and we will have you back two hours later.
We will meet at Sögreni Bikes in the inner city area of Copenhagen. Payment is requested while we get the bikes ready, and then we set off on a tour where we will guide you around to a selection of landmarks and sights. What really separate our bike tours from the pack is our unique mixture of must-see sights in Copenhagen combined with an introduction to some of the great craftsmen that reside in our city. You may have heard about Danish design, but we will show you the places where it actually happens. So we leave you with so much more than ‘just’ The Little Mermaid and the Amalienborg Castle.
Tickets are available by pre-booking, or you can just try your luck and show up 15 minutes before the tour. The price for the 2-hour tour is 299 DKK (40 EUR), and includes bicycle renting.
Meeting point: Sögreni Bikes Skt. Peders Stræde 30 A 1450 Copenhagen K

In theory: If you want a bicycle to last forever, well then you should use the best kind of, and heaviest type of steel frame, right? And then, you should add 3 og 5 or even more layers of paint, … Continue reading →
We had a nice e-mail just a few days ago. Mr Tsutusmi, who earlier also sent us pictures from his blue bicycle, now shares how his Sögreni Copper Bell slowly is getting that nice, greenish patina. The bell is now about 2 years old. Thanks for sharing!
Meet Mr. Lars, as he shows up at the shop in Skt Peders Stræde for a summer check-up of his Old Shatterhand bicycle, born in the summer of 2002. We notice the lack of rust, the well-kept overall finish and … Continue reading →
