I am trying to understand how a rotating bicycle wheel doesn't fall over when you hold it on one side of the axle .

That is exactly right.the top of the wheel wants to go to the left and the bottom of the wheel want to go right but when the wheel rotates these forces appose because that part of the wheel is now in a new place ,

is this correct , any input will be much appreciated .
