  2. Not sure on my thoughts on the subject.
    For experianced and Skilled rider (Especially racing) they would be fantastic, but for inexperianced riders, the fources they are talking about countering are exactly what holds you upright and makes ballance easy.

    It is definately worth investigation, but i am not sure weather it would have a place outside of racing.

    surely the gyrospopic forces help you maintain control by aiding straightline stability and easyier stand up out of corners.
