Kona Ute: Big Manufacturer Enters Cargo Bicycle Market

It was great to see that some of the large manufacturers are heading into the cargo bicycle market. Hopefully it’ll bring cargo bicycles into the mainstream and make a dent in car traffic.

Check out the Kona Ute. They’ve added this great new longbike to their huge lineup. Longbikes are great for anyone who wants an all around bicycle that they can use for commuting, getting groceries, camping, and to transport small adults or older kids.

    This is a great, affordable medium-duty hauler. Been riding my 2010 Ute for a couple of months now. Added the eZee electric front hub to increase the hauling power, with the express goal of replacing my car.

    Documenting the pros and cons of it on our blog at http://www.konaute.com. Stop by for a visit sometime.

    Now Kona has added an electric-assist option, which will make the Ute accessible to an even wider range of riders. I’ve posted a review and video on my blog at http://mycargobike.net/2010/06/15/first-look-at-the-kona-electric-ute. The Ute has become an even more interesting bike with an attractive price.
