Indeed. But I've never claimed that the bike industry was green, only bike riding is. (Sort of. Until you have to replace the parts.)

Well played.

I suppose the bikes from those boxes are going to big-box retailers? I don't know bikes built in Oz. Are there many local brands?

Thanks for the thought provoking post!

Hey,don't worry! You'll be pleasantly surprised by the results.

PS:Chandra~ calculations will only be from China outbound. Only a fraction of bikes are made in Australia.
