Do you remember when we told you about Yuba's Boda Boda? Basically, Yuba took its full-size cargo bike, the Mundo, and made it more compact so apartment dwellers and people dealing with tight spaces could own a cargo bike. It was a really good idea. And that's what Kona is doing here.
Kona took its full-size cargo bike, the Ute, and made it more compact. So it's a mini-Ute, or a MinUte. Get it?
This is a solid design for a cargo bike: hydraulic disc brakes; wide 40c tires; long chainstays and "wood deck" rear carrier; upright riding position; and lots of gear options. The Ute bags are included.
