For sale: 2008 Kona Ute Cargo/Utility Bike
Looking for an affordable bike that can haul a serious load of groceries, a couple of kids, or just get you and your stuff to the office in comfort? The Kona Ute is an excellent all-weather commuter and utility bike. The Ute is a "longtail" cargo bike, meaning the rear portion is longer to allow for all your cargo-carrying needs. You can strap just about anything to this bike with some bungee cords and a little creativity, or add a couple of kids' seats and turn it into a human-powered minivan.
I purchased my 2008 Kona Ute brand new from Trophy Bikes in April 2010 for $850. The 2011 Ute is nearly identical and sells for $1049, but this one can be yours for $425 OBO. I am only selling it because I have too many bikes and haven't used this one as much as planned. The bike has seen light use (perhaps 500 miles) and is in perfect working order, with a few scratches here and there from bungee-ing stuff down. It has been stored indoors at all times.
The Ute rides like a Cadillac and feels very sturdy and stable. I am a 5'3" female and find it to be very comfortable to maneuver due to the lightweight aluminum frame and fat tires. The bike has a wide gear range so you can climb hills without worry, and a front fender to protect you from rain and road grime. Perhaps most important is the front DISC BRAKE which makes stopping a breeze in the rain, even when the bike is loaded down. The bike for sale is 100% stock and features the below specs:
