dad bike ahoy (kona ute content)
my thinking is if it’s absolutely lashing it down i can still take the boy to the child minders on the bike…. or if i want to go shopping with him i can can use the trailer and put the Ute bags back on (they don’t fit with the child seat)… and for £30, you can’t really go wrong!Posted 4 years ago
Have you tried pulling a trailer + kid + kid junk + 40lb bike before? 😉
no but i did pull the empty trailer to the cash machine and back to pay for it.. a round trip of about 1 mile(ish)… and, erm, yes… lets just say i had a healthy glow and warm legs upon my return 😆Posted 4 years ago
my cargo/dad bike… weighs in at a healthy 18.5kgs 😮
and with the boy “attached”:
went for a nice ride on sunday, he was asleep by the time we reached the park 😆 up hill, nearly all the way, and cheering as we went down hill on the way home 😎 done a couple of tip runs with it too… it’s actually quite a fun bike to ride, & i don’t yet feel the need to modify it (well maybe some chunkier tyres 🙄 )
i got one of these from one of the neighbours too (it’s good to have options) for the princely sum of £30, it’s like new:

Cool, I`m loving my MinUte (Thanks to a great PSA on here) though the handling is a little interesting with 2 kids in kiddie seats on the back.
Going to try and get them lower still and slightly further forwards as well, which should help.
Failing that its going to get a Porteur rack for the front to carry the kit and weigh the front down a bit 😀
As for Panniers, the MinUte bags should fit with child seat, as I can still fit them when only carrying one childPosted 4 years agoneilc1881Subscriber
I have a Ute and am convinced that it is the best £600 I have ever spent. So practical for family use, commuting and even a bit of farming 😉 I’ve got a Yepp seat for the little one and I can fully load the Ute bags with it mounted. Our 6 year old also jumps on the back for lifts back from her friend’s houses in the village etc. Carrying the 6ft hurdles was definitely the hardest handling wise though. Even the logging lorry I passed gave way!Posted 4 years ago
