    Like Technical Stuff

    Newbie; already scanned the Forum titles, but can't figure out where the tech, "calculations" and formulas are; I love Physics and Math, so want to dig into Rake, Trail, Head Angle, etc, and their impact on riding; for example, what factors make it easy to ride "no hands" [no, I don't want to, I just want to start there to understand stability, for example, and what lends itself to "body lean making it turn".... [are they the same]?

    And tandem bikes, do theey follow similar criteria as a common Mountain Bike, or skinny tire "10/15/18 speed"?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I'm going to go searching now, but if you can help me get started in the right direction, I'd like it.

    Hello Euphinio, welcome to Bike Forums!

    Some pointers: I think your geometry questions would be best answered in the Framebuilders forum. As for tandems, not sure what criteria you're referring to, but the crowd over at our Tandem Cycling forum might be able to help.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
