hi guys this is an image of the rear wheel of a push bike going into a corner as well as what i think are relevant forces,
i need to calculate the moments or torque at A (the contact patch) and B (the hub centre) this is to calculate the force on the left hand side of the frame and right hand side of the frame while in a corner Fsr = the force going through the suspension Fc = lateral cornering forcer on the rear wheel phi = lean angle MG = mass & gravity t = the cross sectional radius of the tyre i can and have calculated the above parameters through lot of prior equations that take into account the wheelbase, velocity, friction, radius of the turn ect. but i think that the above are the require ones to calculate this... if there is an easier way please let me know im sure its quite simple really but i have either over thought it are just been daft cheers for any help guys but could you please explain your reasoning behind your answer so that i can verify it please https://s.yimg.com/hd/answers/i/7c91...&x=1398489477&

sorry the above link doesnt work as i said thought im not 100% these are the relevant forces but i am fairly confident also tho point out this is assuming that it is a 2d diagram should be a simple moments equation really (i think) also it can be assumed the bike is stationary and that it is simple leant over with a machine applying the forces if it makes it easier to calculate...
thats the torque or moments about point A ( contact patch ) and B the wheel spindle centre but any help would be great whether in motion stationary or anything, if you ignore the forces i have written and know another way very happy to listen to that too thanks alot guys cheers
