*BACKORDER - *Tentative* ETA March 2022
Can it get any better for your precious cargo? This stylish, quality custom-made top is always ready to go! Easy up and easy down. Down and out of the way - or back up - in 5 seconds. This is a must-have if you want to ride year-round or in any questionable weather!  In warmer weather the front and rear windows zip open and tuck away, allowing lots of fresh air in while keeping the sun out. 
FITS ALL YEARS AND ALL MODELS OF BUCKET BIKE. If you order a soft top with your new bike purchase, we will take care of the necessary preparation to install it.  If you are ordering a soft top for a MADSEN bike you already own, you will need to make 2 small holes in your bucket and use a 8mm wrench and a 4mm hex head wrench. First install takes about 5-10 minutes . After that, you can remove the soft top without tools ... or just always leave it on.

Amazing Spaceship

The soft top fits wonderfully and makes fall/winter riding with kids 100x better. Kids stay warm when it’s cold. You can put it up to keep the bucket dry on damp nights. Fits like a glove over the bucket. Most importantly, we call it a rocket ship and launch the cover so the kids can bicycle through space. Well worth it just for that!

Necessary for winter riding!

I have an older Madsen and so needed to drill the holes, etc. I had very low expectations for my success as I have ZERO handiness. However, they sent out the extra hardware and tools to help me out and it only took me 30 min from opening the box to fully installed! I would recommend a second person to help push the bolts in place to make it quicker and less infuriating. My baby and toddler were elated to be protected from wind, and snow. I am hoping to commute year-round now that I have this!

Daily Driver - Perfect for the chilly early morning school drop off

This top works great! The kids love it when the weather is not the best. It’s easy to install and to use. We love how the “windows” can be opened up too. This has really allowed us to extend our kid hauling capabilities. We were hesitant to buy at first, but after receiving and using, we wish we would have ordered sooner!

It's great!

The soft top is well made and works perfectly. I only wish it had a screen in the openings.

Takes a little practice, but great if you want to keep riding in bad weather!

I initially found this frustrating to install. There is a video and everything but after about 45 minutes things were cool. It takes a little practice to open and close, and then you have a "convertible" bicycle. I think nowadays I can get the top up/down in under a minute. The kids love it. So far I've only rolled with the windows rolled open, to facilitate conversation with the kids. This keeps them dry enough. A minor change I would suggest is to have pulls on both sides of the zippers, like a tent. Right now, the windows can only be unzipped from the outside. But, as I said, we have so far rolled with open windows. I suspect that an added benefit is that in the down position, the kids have a more comfortable ledge to rest their arms. OH ... if you want to ride in bad weather ... we get cold rain in Northern California ... I suggest you get: 1) A cold weather cycling cap that fits under your helmet. Mine has a visor which helps with sun and rain, and ear flaps that can fold down and make all the difference on a cold day. Check out: https://www.bicycling.com/bikes-gear/a25185909/winter-hats/ 2) RAIN PANTS! They're weatherproof pants you pull on over your regular pants. I got a pair for under $20 on Amazon. Getting to the office or back home on a rainy day and having dry pants at the end is the greatest thing ever!!!

Thanks, Danny! We love your additional wet weather suggestions. And, thank you for pointing out that while it may be initially frustrating to get the soft top seated perfectly, but once it is set and with a little practice you are now able to get it up and down in less than a minute. Thanks!
