Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say that we have a 2 wheel bicycle riding at 2m/s. The weight distribution on this bicycle implies that the front wheel is exerting a total of 400N on the ground, whilst the back is exerting 560N.

How would I work out whether at this speed if I were to lock up the front brake, provided it didn’t skid, the rear of the bicycle would lift off the ground?

How would I work out the moment force… Where would I be measuring to… where would I define the CG (centre of gravity) to be?

I am working on an investigation and ANY help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.
