Well, one a deez days I will get around to some information gathering I've been thinking about for a few years. I'm going to put a digital scale under both front and rear wheels with me on the bike in normal riding positions and see what the percentage is front/rear. Just like in auto racing. And then see what the difference is in my different bikes. I've got the scales. Should yield some interesting conversation. I ride waaaay back, so it'll be particularly interesting to see what, if any, difference seat angle makes. I guess the mathematicians out there will not need the scales. Just lets not start debating this just yet, lets get some results in first. Any body else ever do this? Sports cars like 49/51%. Who knows, we might just like the same!

enjoy,
