on my TT prototype I changed the position of the front-wheel. The wheel is now 
8 cm nearer to
the bb, as you can see on the photo, (TT 3).

The side forces while pedaling are now less than on the former TT because the 
(pivot-hub) and (hub-bb) have now the same length. The hanging pendulum of the 
python still
makes pedaling smoother because it counteracts the pedaling forces. But on TT 3 
it is now
nearly comfortable to go off hands.

The wheel flop has also decreased, because the positive trail is now 3 cm, 
(former 10 cm).
Downhill-ability is still good, 50 km max speed is no problem.

Turning radius is good, 2 meter and the bike is very agile (with handlebars)

I will put the front wheel another few cm nearer to the bb and I am courious 
how it will ride.
