How bicycle steer

2014-02-12 15:05:02.722003+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

One from Shadow: Why bicycles do not fall: Arend Schwab at TEDxDelft (YouTube).

And to spoiler it (it takes a little while for him to get there): it's not castoring trail, and it's not gyroscopic effect. And in the end he shows how his students created a self-stable rear steering bicycle.

I think the video helps the explanation, but I do also think that the video could be about 1/3rd its length...
