This would be good if it weren't for the fact that several are incorrect. Take gyroscopic stability, for example. Even the references state it is an important factor in balancing a bicycle. Whether it is "required" would depend on a variety of factors, such as the weight and skill of the rider. i.e. Yes, a skilled rider can perform a "track stand", but gyroscopic forces sure make riding a flop-load easier!
