I think there are loads of potential utility bikes on the market. People just like different things and then tweek them how they want.

This bike was about $200 brand-spanking-new at a bike shop. I added good seat, rack, fenders & bar ends (another $95). Now I'm running it as a 1 x 8. Very practical and it can haul some groceries, take the rain, and bomb along on sidewalk rides with my daughter. It is very much a utility bike. I guess it's original category was comfort or city or something.
