    Should be 两辆自行车……

    • sasha:

      @Steven C. Poling Jr. Not necessarily. I’ve heard Chinese people say 二辆 countless times when it comes to cars, bikes, etc., as it’s confusing to have “liang” back to back. It’s just like changing 1 to “yao” when reading out numbers, so as to avoid confusion with 7. I couldn’t help but notice that you have a e-mail address, which makes it clear why you spend so much time on here posting about every simple, tiny mistake you can find. I went to State. Four years in a row. Go Green.
