Grip near the stem , and the motion of your hand will be less exaggerated
by the Buffeting and counter reaction..
More trail , the bike will feel less sporty, and responsive..
but will be more stable.
track racing motor paced the front wheel of the bike had a fork
that is bent backwards , to make a big increase in the Trail .
In a film clip for Bicycling Science, a book he wrote,
MIT Professor David Gordon Wilson
set a handlebar and pedal less bike in motion down a hill .
because the fork was backwards , it stayed up ,and went straight,
until it ran out of forward Momentum.
