    G'day folks

    For years you have swallowed the line that 2-stroke bicycle motors are dirty, polluting little monsters and not long for this world. Right? WRONG!!

    A bicycle fitted with a 2-stroke bicycle engine kit is one of the most climate-friendly motor-vehicles on the planet.

    I'm in Australia and keen to raise this issue both in Oz and elsewhere where you feel like a second-class citizen and have to sneak around on back roads to avoid the cops. For some odd reason that I don't understand, the very low carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint of motorized bicycles seems lost on just about everyone.

    Air quality may be affected by 2-strokes in some cities, but the very low carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to greenhouse and climate change make MBs very climate-friendly.

    Anyone want to discuss this?

    Spookytoothcycles set up a bike and sent it to EPA emmisions testing, and it passed with flying colors.

    I'd like to hear from spookytooth what the approval is for.

    When comparing power for power, a two cycle is dirtier than a four cycle.

    If you want to improve air quality especially in the Smoky Mountains, cut down all the pine trees. ;)

    Those Smoky Mountains — What Makes the Blue Ridge Blue? Homeschool Rangers

    The truth is the EPA limits for hydrocarbon emissions for a car are lower than the emissions of a full grown pine tree.

    My save the planet thinking is:

    Own the smallest vehicle to meet your needs (and have a motorbike as a second vehicle :) )
    Drive it sensibly
    Keep it tuned
    Combine trips when possible
    Carpool when I can
    Avoid buying disposable anything
    Say "Yes Ma'am" to your mother.
    And finally, have two kids or fewer, not a whole litter!

    (Sorry if that was too political)

    Your argument is based on an assumption that CO2 is a pollutant that is causing global warming. This theory is not proved and hundreds of scientist disagree with the current global warming bunk.

    From: Global Warming: On Hold?: Discovery News
    "Earth's climate continues to confound scientists. Following a 30-year trend of warming, global temperatures have flatlined since 2001 despite rising greenhouse gas concentrations, and a heat surplus that should have cranked up the planetary thermostat."

    Maybe greenhouse gas aren't so greenhouse. Our sunm you know, does have cyclic outputs in varying amounts of energy that is emitted to warm our planet.
