I'm always willing to listen..

Now things start to get technical, and you won't be alone if what follows is a little confusing and counterintuitive. There's vigorous disagreement over whether a bike in effect hangs from the upper spokes (those above the hub as you view the bike from the side) or rather is being supported by the lower ones, acting like tiny pillars. 'The latter view, odd as it seems, is definitively the case,' says Jim Papadopoulos from Northeastern University's College of Engineering in Boston, USA, and the co-author of Bicycling Science.
