(Photos/Kona Bicycles) Did you wake up this morning and think “Man, I wish I had an affordable bike that I could use as a ‘get-a-round’ commuter bike”? Kona Bicycles may’ve heard that thought, as it introduced the Kona Coco, an affordable, European-styled, year-round commuter. Just what you wanted! (Photos/Kona Bicycles) The Coco is an elegantly designed step-through bicycle that pays homage to the European commuters we are all familiar with. Equipped with full-length fenders (with mudflaps), and internal cable routing providing a clean aesthetic, the Kona Coco inspires you to get started on that commuter dream. Chaingaurd to keep your pants clean and snag-free.

The step-through, European commuter bikes are fantastic, and useful tools to encourage us all to ride more and drive less. And the Kona Coco makes it really easy at this price point to take the “commuter plunge” and give it a try. Kona Coco Geometry
