In my area Kona may the best brand for the price, and I came across their commuter bikes : KONA BIKES | 2014 BIKES | COMMUTER
I think they are amazing,really like the minute and the dew with the front rack.... Of course I don't know anything about them. Which ones do you think are the most acceptable for long touring? I can use any of these bikes for commuting and I need for that purpose too, but I don't know what should I choose if I go to long trips. The minute looks tempting, but it's 17,8kg... Also I can add fenders and racks to the Dew or dew plus. Can these bikes go over grass fields or light gravel, unpaved roads? Thanks for the answers in advance.
