    I do have to say that this premise here is a furphy. You would be carrying those things on a lighter bike, anyway, so the difference in weight between bikes remains valid.

    And does it apply to children's bikes, which I imagine, make-up most of the sales each year of bicycles just about anywhere? And wouldn't there be a state retail tax already applied... well, I think...

    If that is fundamental accounting, then I would steer clear of the accountant. Or more bluntly, if that was the logic that was used in the US, little wonder the big lending crash occurred back in the...

    And just how many people have a healthy diet?

    Heck, we can't even agree on what is a healthy diet in these forums, so what hope have the great unwashed got?

    The article says the money will go into the general transportation budget, but won't be channelled to cycling projects. Credibility hinges on accuracy.

    Yeah, steam produced some fast trains, but not 200mph-plus ones. And the fastest commercially operating train, the Shanghai Maglev, with a top speed of 430km/h, doesn't even have wheels!!!
