Re: [Phys-l] stable bicycle

Very interesting.

Good separation of variables approach.

They are using the 'Steering into Fall' effect which follows from tire cross-section (IIUC).

I'd like to see the effect of a 'knife-edge' tire with each of the other effects included/excluded.

Other effects being gyro and trail.

A student sent this to me, so I thought I'd share it wit the group. It's
research at Cornell of a bike without gyroscopes. Interesting!
