Hmmmm... the earlier posts make sense to me but I'm not convinced of what they are saying or doing in the "indifference" parts, especially the "laminar" part; there can't be much if any laminar flow on any of those weird bikes. I mean, they could be right, but I'm not understanding what they're putting down. My guess is the things they did altered the center of pressure with relation to the center of gravity more than anything... CP being behind CG leading to much more stability...
