Here's a question, that may or may not have been discussed here.
I hear a lot of talk about trail on the front wheel.
If you have sidecar steering, how much trail should you use on it?
Question

I don't know the answer for this for sure, but i'm guessing you could run near 0 trail, because you've got two wheels linked and steerable, and in effect they are helping to stabilize each other from becoming unstable without effective trail? Question
