Okay, so it might seem like a trivial question, but when I suddenly stop my bike (not really fast), I lose balance. Why is that? What keeps me from falling while riding it?

EDIT : The answers in the other question either use terms I don't understand, or don't explain it in a simple and satisfactory way.

  • $\begingroup$ I suggest, vs_292, that you then reformulate your question, explaining what you already understand, and which points are unclear, and why. $\endgroup$ – stafusa Sep 24 '17 at 11:05
