Kronan’s American Online Store is Open

I can’t remember where I saw my first Kronan, I want to say it was a catalog that was photographed really well by someone, but since then I’ve wanted one. The biggest problem was that they had no stores in the US and you couldn’t order them online… until today. Kronan is a Swedish company who’s been making bikes since the 1940’s, so they know what they’re doing. But these have been updated will all the bells and whistles of modern day bikes, so you get that old fashioned style mixed with modern technology.

I just think they look damn sexy. I haven’t ridden a bike in years, but these make me want one sooo bad. I’d even face Los Angeles traffic if I had one of these (I’m lying, I would ride it on the sidewalk). I also really like the colors they have, including the ultra sexy creme in the photo above, but also black, red, green and blue. They also come in different styles as well, depending upon you and what you like. They have a men’s and women’s 3-Speed, a men’s and women’s single speed, and an aluminum, unisex 5-speed. So whatever style you like, they’ve got it. But of course, something so awesome doesn’t come cheap, so you’re looking at $500 to $700 depending upon the model you want.

I think these bikes would be worth every penny, they’ve got a beautiful classic style and they look as sturdy as can be. Just go visit the site and fall in love like I did.

    Beautiful!

    Have you seen the Danish bicylces by Sögreni?

    I like all of them, except for “The Mountaingoat.” That bike is just plain ridiculous/hilarious.

    Being from Denmark, this is the sort of bike everybody has one time in their life. And only this one time. I had one, but sold it after a year, as it was in such a terrible quality and kept on puncturing.
    the sogreni Young Shatterhand is really cool though!

    Being swedish and been riding the kronan bike. I must say it’s one comfortable bike to ride.

    Kronan bikes were made for the Swedish military. Very durable but also very heavy – wieght is pretty much the only downside since they added the modern day requirements.

    Sogreni is a lame atempt at copying Biomega which is the premier Scandinavian brand of bicycles.

    Also check out ‘Bike by Me’ – novel concept and nice model.

    …don’t know why I bothered commenting, never do otherwise..
