Hey, if an adapter works well, let me know what it is.
I'd be glad for the education.

Brad, I'm sure there is some super rough equivalent, but those rules only work over a narrow (linear) range for a car, and much less so for a bike with the relatively poor sprung to unsprung mass ratios. In any event, a far smaller value for a bike.

The equivalent manifestation on a bike is lowering tire pressure when a light rider cant' get a tire to heat up enough to stick well and/or the spring is stupid-heavy for them. Then we just drop the pressure.
