On the Stability of a Bicycle on Rollers
Cleary, Patricia A.; Mohazzabi, Pirooz
European Journal of Physics, v32 n5 p1293-1301 Sep 2011
Riding a bicycle on the newest form of indoor training, rollers, presents a unique experiment on bicycle stability. The stability factors eliminated by riding on rollers are discussed in terms of refined handling and control of the centre of mass on a bicycle. This paper is intended for undergraduate physics majors as well as any other general readership interested in the dynamics of bicycle stability. (Contains 4 figures.)
