Bicycles in America have been "toys" for many years now for both
adults and kids. In parts of the world where cars are NOT the main
means of transport bikes are only transport for the masses.

Big oil, big auto business & their political stooges all keep bike use in
America from growing in utility use. However, the fact that you ask
the question and that there is now a start up company trying to import
Dutch bikes ( http://www.dutchbikes.us/ ) means that more people
are getting squeezed out of cars onto bike by high fuel cost.

It's about damn time.............
