Hi folks, I've been trawling the interwebs for information on how a bike's dimensions, namely rake, trail and wheelbase, affects its dynamics. (Courtesy of a slow day at work ) I've found a few good articles that explain this in details. Like this article and several others. Problem is, the more I read the more confused I get. So I thought I'd throw my questions here. I was never the brightest student in class afterall... LOL So here's what I think I understand so far. From a very simplistic view, more rake and more trail = bike becomes more stable but less nimble? As in easier to go straight, takes more effort to corner / turn? Then what about wheelbase? The most obvious is of course, wheelies and stoppies (be it accidental or intentional) are more difficult with longer wheelbase. Having said that, do they have any other effect to the way the bike rides? I apologise in advance if this has been previously discussed to death. If that's the case, can you someone point me to the article? cheers.
