New video: How does a bicycle stay upright?


Trackstand competition

Have you ever wondered why some bikes are easier to ride than others? I’ve discussed a few times on these pages the physics of bicycles, but this new video from Minute Physics is by far the best explanation I’ve seen that answers the frequently asked question, “How does a bicycle stay upright?”



Everybody who enters a new-and-improved bike in design competitions should watch this video. H/T to Serge in San Diego.
