Momentum and gyroscopic difference between wheel sizes

This is usually attributed to the "smaller rotation weight" of the smaller wheels and presumably the resulting angular momentum. This is mostly untrue (assuming constant mass). If you have ...

Momentum and gyroscopic difference between wheel sizes

Rotation weigh and angular momentum have very little, it anything nothing to do with it. 29" wheels have a smaller 'strike angle' when they hit an obstacle. Therefore they roll over bumps easier. ...
