(i21st)--A revival of bike has swept across China, with an increasing number of people choosing cycling in stead of driving. Start-ups like Ofo and Mobike has boosted bike-sharing schemes. The bikes they provided are equipped with GPS, and those bikes are gaining ground among Chinese as they can be easily unlocked with a smartphone and left anywhere in public.

At the same time, Chinese service operators are trying to address problems accompanying like vandalism and theft. For example, Mobike sets 100-point credit scores for each user, with points taken in the case of bad behavior. Once a score drops below 80, bike rental is increased to 100 yuan per 30 minutes, up from 0.5-1 yuan.
    However, those bikes are not only available for who uses apps, bikes with technical issues, or simple password are easy to take away to use privately or sell; different producers replace or vandalize bikes of other brands then put their own bikes instead. Those problems emerges not only in China, but also other places around the world.I guess it's more a discussion of national quality and profit distribution than bikes. Should government be involved in? Or should bike-sharing continue?

"Highlighting" the pollution problem is not exactly "solving" it...

ok. obviously China is solving this problem now. It takes time and it's complex, also it's a worldwide problem and i'm glad to see if any country can find an immediate solution.
