Gary Fisher Transport

Has anyone seen this new utility bike from Gary Fisher? I have wanted a utility bike and since I work at a Trek shop this has caught my eye. I know it's load capacity is rated at only half of the BD but I don't see how I would end up with 400 lbs of stuff anyway so this should suffice. I am awaiting a reply on the approximate weight of the bike without the 350 watt electric assist motor as I don't see any use for that.

There was some discussion of this bike already on the forum. Trek's 2011 Utility Bike
Plenty of opinions, but thought this thread might be helpful to you.

Now ol' Gary's jumped on the longtail cargo bike craze? I see no reason to give up my BD yet!
