Kona launching another cargo bike?
 
Looks like that Kona is planning on giving the Ute a Mini Me- as in the MinUte.

I like the idea. Reminds me a lot of my Haul's design. I wish they would give us some IGH lovin though.

I wish more bikes had built-in rear racks. Looks like it will do well.

I agree. Even better, I'd like a dropbar light cargo bike like this. I have options such as the Raleigh Sojourn, or select other tourers, but there just isn't enough variation in bikes with frame-integrated racks, which I think is sad.

Not that it doesn't look like a good ride, but isn't a short longbike a regular bike?

Looks good to me. I can see a market for a more rugged, regular sized cargo bike.

Medium-tail? Looking at the chain it looks long, but maybe that's just forced perspective. I think its the perfect length to load the largest panniers you can get as full as possible and not have to worry about heel strike.
