I'm sure I'm the last one on the block to see it but I just checked out the youtube video of the 60's commercial for the Wham-o Bicycle Wheelie Bar. Now I want one for one of my bikes. My problem is [hangs head in shame] I can't wheelie. I can for about a tenth of a second but I quickly fall forward or fall backwards. I'm not sure what angle the bike needs to be at to ballance propperly? Any of you mad scientists have any idea how I can calculate aproximatly where the wheels need to be to hold a wheelie without tumbling backwards? Any ideas or sugestions appreciated.
