I thought we could talk about steering flop. I get asked all of the time... What formula do you use
on your bicycles to get rid of steering flop? Since I switched to building bicycles it's embarrassing to
say I don't have the exact science. I've tried the science and it seems to get real close... but no
"sweet spot". At least for me.
When I get to that stage when building from scratch, I adjust the trail slightly + or - a few millimeters
from the textbooks until I give it a thumb up. Does anyone have a good formula or major problems with steering flop?
