Looking to learn physics about how a bicycle works and if it effects

    Looking to learn physics about how a bicycle works and if it effects projectiles because of the rotational inertia if a bike was to go off a ramp.

    any suggestions?

    Something like this:


    Or the "Einstein Flip"

    Just going off a ramp in a simple jump is pretty ballistic with lots of air resistance.
    I suppose if you back-pedaled in mid-jump it would make your handle-bars want to dip sooner... you could try it and see?
