You could be the proud owner of this white Pedersen bicycle. The Pedersen may be the most beautiful bicycle you have ever seen. With clean lines, an elegant shape and a structure that appears delicate and sophisticated, the Pedersen is another wonderful example of Scandinavian design. The Pedersen frame is perhaps the machine's most striking feature. Pairs of structural tubes come together to form a truss which provides the anchor points for the hammock saddle. Patented in 1894 by Mikael Pedersen, the design is as daring and futuristic today as it was more than 100 years ago. Pedersen continued his involvement in other areas and remained a prolific inventor, and his name is associated with, among other things, magneto design, accurate measurement gauges and munitions. He was an accomplished musician who built his own instruments, brewed his own beer, and loved practical jokes, but by 1920 his creative abilities had begun to suffer, and he moved back to Denmark, where he died in a senior citizen's community in Copenhagen in 1929. In 1978, Jesper Sølling re-discovered the Pedersen design and began building frames. After more than a century, Pedersen's design continues to be an example of unique craftsmanship in a world of mass-produced convention. Pedersen bicycles are a link to the past, when cycling brought independence and freedom of movement, when quality was apparent, when details mattered, when style was beautiful. This bicycle is looking for a new home, and it could be yours.
