    Default How Bicycles Work

    Interesting video from Simon Whistler, whose clips I enjoy on YouTube.

    It is still allowed to discuss bikes in this space, right?

    La Cheeserie!

    Sort of glances over the fact that the research of the TU Delft team has quite thoroughly explained how bicycles work.

    Steering into the fall is basically it. And don't forget that it's possible to do only when there is friction between the wheel and the ground. If you doubt this, try riding on an icy stretch (with regular tires that is) and see how long you can stay upright.

    But the mechanics of steering are indeed curious, and straddle (ahem...) and can involve dynamic excursions about... how to put it?.. an unstable equilibrium or between two metastable states?..

    Fun!
