Short summary
A simple bicycle model considers only geometric and mass properties. Bicycle models considering compliance, tires, and rider posture are available. For the designer, it is important to know if the effect of geometric and mass properties on stability is correctly predicted by a simple bicycle model. Stability indices are calculated by means of bicycle models of increasing complexity. Results show that the simple model correctly predicts only the stability of the single modes.
