Jack, exactly. But rake and trail are the same as large amounts of caster.
Think of the bike's steering head as the kingpin . It intersects the surface
way ahead of the contact patch on the tire. I was thinking more the shopping
cart front wheels with a vertical shatf but the contact patch trailing.
