a bicycles steering characteristics are determined by the angle of steepness
of the head tube (the part at the front of the bicycle into which the fork
steerer fits) and the rake of the fork. head tube angles can vary from 70
deg to 78 deg. they also vary according to wheel diameter. fork rake varies
from 2.5cm - 6 cm. a track "sprint" bike should have very quick steering and
frequently a head angle of 76 deg and a rake of 2-3 cm. 'trick' bikes have
no rake and do not self centre.... it _is_ my business.
