G-Bike Knee Down

Hey all,

Looking at g bikes and how you guys build them. How come no knee down action? 🙂

I'll try once I finish my G-Bike, but it will probably end up as a face plant. 🙂

With cornering loads (wheel slip, centripetal loads, friction losses etc) reducing speed rapidly in the corner I am guessing you will be unable to maintain a constant lean angle. Physics anyone?
