    If a bicycle (like the one shown) with equal wheels has a rotation counter on each, why will the front one tend to give a higher reading?

    According to me, the front wheel of the bicycle rotates more than the one at the back because when we first start cycling, the front wheel is the one that moves first and completes its rotation earlier, since it is situated right below the steering.

    The given bicycle’s front wheel rotates more than the back wheel because when it is moving, it’s the one to be steered so, in ways like turning and moving sideways, the front wheel is the one to cover more distance. As the front wheel has to go in the direction we want, it will have to make complete turns to that direction rather than back wheel which will not have to move in such ways and only follows the front wheel. So , the front wheel tends to give a higher reading .
