I've been lurking around here for a while, soaking it all in, and I've just gotten myself an entry level type bike. searching around in these forums, I've seen a lot of different types of storage methods, but nothing specifically addressing whether it's alright to hang a bike by the wheel. you know, with one of those plastic coated hooks you drive into the ceiling. seems it might be bad for the wheel, but then again, they ought to be pretty strong.
from long experience in other hobbies, I know that just because a product is made doesn't mean it's a good idea to use it.
thanks to everyone in advance; I've learned a lot here!
