    Gyro operated training wheel

    Need some direction for helping my kid with his gyro-operated training wheel that engages the training wheel when the bike tilted beyond a certain angle.

    Thanks.
    Colin.

    Well, first you would have to have some form of speed-feedback as...

    1: Leaning into fast corner at 15mph.
    2: Slowly falling over when stationary.
    3: Slowly rolling forward and losing balance. ( the gyro's reason for being )
    4: Tilting the bike to get on and off.

    ...would all look the same to the gyro and launch the wheels.
