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.

Bike crate

The crate is a perfect accessory for our bike. It's so easy to throw everything in and go, it's really secure and can be taken off and put back on super simply. A great addition to our entire Madsen set up which we love.

So glad you love your new crate, Casey! We appreciate the review!

Love my Crate

The crate is super handy! I have had a metal crate zip ties to the front of my bike for the last three years and it worked fine but I LOVE my new wooden crate. It is so easy to take on and off. We actually were just traveling by bike and I had the crate packed full then just popped it off the bike and carried it right inside. When it was time to leave again I packed it up and brought it right back out, two quick straps later and we were ready to go. Of course having my logo on their makes me even more happy. And now I need to fill it up with badges! Smitty has ridden in it too and he approves!

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!
