Hanging the bike(7 posts)

No, I don't want to lynch my bike, at least not yet.
I want to hang it up from hooks from the ceiling in the garage by the wheels. Any long term problems doing this?? I have no room in my garage with the cars, toys, etc. etc.

A common method for home, garage, and shop.

Be the bike.

No problems. Just make sure that the hooks are in something solid, like a stud. Hate to have your baby cut loose and come crashing to the floor or start swinging by 1 wheel! (I unfortunately found this out the hard way-at least it was only my mtb.)

Make sure you don't hang it from the same exact spot on the wheel each time. The rims may stretch and ovalize from repeated hanging if you are not careful. Oops my tongue is stuck over in my cheek again.

Turn 1/4 of a turn everyday, just like a wine. (nm)Bruno S
