I read a lot in ads and reviews about the "geometry" of bikes, things like head and seat angles, wheelbase, top tube length, etc. I understand that there are elements of design that make a bike faster, more stable, or perhaps more comfortable. However, that's about as far as my knowledge goes. Does anyone know of a book, article, or website that gets into this stuff. I would really like to understand what I'm reading.

thanks,
Jay
