On yer bike! It's an Americanism, adopted by other English speaking countries because Americans say it's correct. It's like saying color is correct when it's just an abomination of an adopted misspelling, or like using period instead of full stop. Language is integral to culture and God knows the English have been guilty of their own abominations when it comes to, say, the repression of Scots Gaelic, Welsh and Irish. But "moveable" means you can move it and movable means you can mov it. You can mov it if you like, but I like to move it, move it - and I am not moved by your argument.
