1. Bicycling science is the bible.
    2. The Mike Burrows book is more popular science so probably a little surface level for someone with an engineering background.
    3. As a lesser known choice, I really rate "Lords of the
      chainring", it's part of the CalPoly Masters Aeronautical
      engineering course. You can get it from the authors website, (Bill

      It's looking at the dynamics of two wheeled vehicles in terms of
      steering moment and rider intention. Like the way aeroplanes control
      systems are designed (I believe).

      It has it's flaws, like it doesn't have the derivations of the math
      involved and it's wierdly laid out as it's the coursebook for the Uni. But the Uni are pretty helpful if you need help and get in touch, they certianly were for me, and sent me a bunch of spreadsheets and useful bits.

      It's good for getting away from all the "high trail makes a bike
      steer slow, low trail makes a bike steer fast" confusing dross that
      seems to permeate the bike-design literature.
