Hanging bike on a rack(5 posts)

I just bought a Hang 1 rack from Performance. It shows hanging your bike from the front wheel. I have a carbon fork. Is it ok to hang a good road bike from the front wheel? I saw in the LBS they hang from the rear wheel.

If your rim and fork can't hold up the 20 lb bike then you're in big trouble next time you hit a pothole.

Seriously, this gets asked a lot, but it is really fine.

...seems like the stresses of hanging a 20-pound bike from the wheel would be many times less than the stress of a 150-pound rider running into a pothole at 30 mph. At least I hang mine without giving it a thought.
