I thought this was a funny video when I starting watching it but realized as I was watching that it really illustrates how stable bikes are.

Yes this think is on ice and the studded tires give it lots of traction. Notice that even at the very low speed it is going the bike just keeps itself upright? Even though they kick it and try and knock it over it just keeps staying upright.

Next time you ride in wind think about this.. bikes really want to stay upright.. relax your grip and let it do so!

That was hilarious .....thanks....mind you the grip of 3" spikes helps...no front wheel washout....but really shows the geometry bringing the bike back on line

I've ridden on snow/ice with street tires. Thankfully they were ME77's and kinda pointy in profile and acted like the blades on skates. I'd hate to do dat on modern tires that are round.
