You've asked for it for years, and it is finally here! Our custom Mælkekasse. Hand-crafted by Jared Madsen and inspired by Jared's dad and uncle's (Even and Dan's) Danish delivery bicycles in the 1940's. As young boys, before and during the WW2 German occupation of Denmark, they both delivered groceries and supplies between Aalborg and surrounding towns. The two boys' grandfather owned and ran a dairy farm - called ENKILDEGAARD. The Mælkekasse (milk cream crate) was inspired after finding some of the old dairy canisters, and custom tooled to fit your front rack perfectly. It’s beautiful! Thoughtfully designed, Jared hand-makes each crate himself in the MADSEN shop using upcycled wood.

Finally, an option to carry even more cargo on your bucket bike. Easily removable. Use as a grocery crate, apple box, mail carrier - and easily attach it securely to the front rack for transport home. The uses are limitless.

Worth it!!

The extra storage is amazing especially with kids in the back! Super sturdy and very easy to take on and off if needed.

An exceptional bike crate

Y’all. This crate is so well thought out and well made. I actually bought it for the front rack of my Dutch bike (I covet a Madsen but my littles are now bigs!). The attachment system is easy, secure, and truly ingenious. The metal reinforcement on the corners also means that when my bike tumbled sideways the crate didn’t so much as crack. It is also beautiful and classic looking. I would recommend this to anybody looking for a bike crate, front or back. I’ve truly never seen a better one.

Jonna, thank you so much for this lovely review of your crate, even for a bike that is not a MADSEN. Jared handmakes these in our shop, and it's rewarding to hear how much you appreciate it! Cheers to many bike adventures!

A perfect basket to get on the bike and go

I love this basket even more than I thought I would. The quality is amazing! It is so securely attached to the bike that nothing ever jostles about. I rode my bike to the park with the crate full past the brim with mini basketballs and tennis balls and nothing bumped out. I love the ease and efficiency of just throwing my bag in the crate and hopping on my bike to go. Plus mine is personalized which takes this beautiful crate to the next level.

Must Have

This thing is beautiful and fits perfectly and snuggly. Definitely a must have. Much better than what I put together on my own before.
