And, of course, you know what demand on those bikes is currently… PMTCC rides pretty often through Beaver. There is one bike store there — https://maps.google.com/maps?q=15219&hl=en&ll=40.696221,-80.30103&spn=0.003404,0.005375&sll=41.117935,-77.604698&sspn=6.9258,11.008301&hnear=Pittsburgh,+Pennsylvania+15219&t=m&z=18 — Snitger’s Bicycle Store. We have pretty good relationship with the store owner. He tried to sell Kona Ute. Just before 2012 PMTCC Tri State Ride we stopped at his store trying to secure support (as a rest stop and mechanical). And I saw Kone Uta in store. We’ve talked about utilitarian bicycles for a long time. Now could you guess how much time it took just sell one?

BTW you can walk in into Thick and Chris will order utilitarian bike for you. As well Trek in Robinson and ProBike in South Hills.

I saw a cargo bike in Oakland yesterday. It makes sense for bike stores to cater to the masses. They’re already kind of a niche market and people willing to haul a lot of crap on a bike is a niche within a niche. I’m also not convinced that a good trailer is not better than a good cargo bike, but I suppose that depends on what the person is doing with it. For those of us with basement bike repair bays (as Stu put it) I cannot imagine trying to get one down there
