I recently bought a Ute to use as my primarily bike in 2009. I am working towards having 1 regular bike to use for commuting and completing household errands. I also have an old folding bike I am fixing up for days when the bus seems more appealing. The Ute completed the 8 mile commute effortlessly, but it is not without its faults. I started a small blog to document and review the bike and my modifications since I struggled to find content on the web.
Anyone considering a good do it all bike should take a look at the Ute, and you can check out my blog to find more detailed information as I work to personalize it to fit my needs.
