Moment of Inertia and Bike stability

  1. Oct 9, 2015 #1
    So is a Bike driver stable when the bike is running because the bike wheels has a certain moment of inertia about the horizontal axis ,which might alter(mi gets lesser) if the direction of the axis changes ?
    Thanks in advance

    There have been lots of threads here about the stability of 2-wheel vehicles (bicycles and motorcycles). Have a look through this set of PF search results to see if you can find some of what you are looking for. Once you've read through them, post any follow-up questions you may have (preferably with links to that reading). :smile:


    BTW -- that's me conducting a stability exercise in my avatar for one of those PF threads... :biggrin:
