sometimes it's a matter of calculating. But sometimes it's a matter of experimentation and "feel". Borrow an adult trike, and you'll see how easy it is to roll it onto the outer wheel of a turn. Consider the feel of a front wheel skid of a car on snow. And consider the handling of a kids "bigwheel

lateral forces are greater for the front wheels. This is why trikes with 2 in front are more stable.
