But lets take away the rider, the weight shifting and the rider balance and just have a bike by itself and TADA, the bike will still go on upright and counter itself as long as it is up at a certain speed.

for a certain period, as long as it is a balanced bike and doesn't hit any bumps and is ona level area...

again one can balance ona bike without even moving. it is the rider that balances a bike, not some mystery...

C'mon people. It is just a simple bicycle that everyone of you knew exactly how it worked. Not so simple anymore is it. It depends on what you read and what you believe. Like it or not the answer is "they don't exactly know". They have many theories, but nothing exact as of today. LOL
you already know. it is the rider that balances the bike.

you seem to have trouble accepting answers that don't fit what you wish were true...

In the video the bike turns, it jumps a dirt hump, it is on a un-level dirt track and still keeps on going. Oh and most importantly,,, there is no rider on it. So try again little tick. LOL

Gyroscopic action.

Same as with a moving bicycle.

Here tick educate yourself. What you think is simple is not so simple. Knowing how to ride a bike and what actually makes it work are totally different things other than gears, sprockets and tires.

We still donít really know how bicycles work.

The Gyroscopic effect is just a small part of it.

A simple explanation does not seem possible because the lean and steer are coupled by a combination of several effects including gyroscopic precession, lateral ground-reaction forces at the front wheel ground contact point trailing behind the steering axis, the wheels being so narrow, gravity and inertial reactions from the front assembly having center-of-mass off of the steer axis, and from effects associated with the moment of inertia matrix of the front assembly. One also has to take in/consider centrifugal force and the castor effect.

Tick I would suggest you read up some before you respond to this.
