If you are riding a MADSEN you may have noticed the current k-stand feet pop off and don’t hold up to a lot of urban use. The current feet are an upgrade from the original feet from our factory, but still have not held up the way we wanted them to. I have been looking for a foot that will last longer, stay on, and look good. Working with John at Lamico Inc, we finally found what we think is a perfect k-stand foot. Since 1964 Lamico has manufactured millions of crutches. In talking with John I found out that they had the same problem with crutch tips that we do with our k-stand feet. The problem is the cheap rubber used in manufacturing the tips, so Lamico invested in their own injection molding factory and developed a PVC based crutch tip, which is superior to others in many ways. MADSEN Cycles can’t afford our an injection molding factory, we worked out a partnership with Lamico and they are making a dark grey PVC based tip for our k-stand (we couldn’t stand the standard flesh colored crutch tips). We have been testing these feet for a while and they don’t wear out or pop off - they're great! We have already started sending out new MADSEN bikes with these improved k-stand feet. And since they are so much better than the old ones we also want every one that has a MADSEN to be using the new feet. Contact us directly and we will ship them right out to you free of charge. Or see our online store to buy some replacements (like you will ever need them). You will notice the new feet on all the new pictures on our home page.
