Hi guys, I just got a new bike and imagined storing it horizontally on one of those wall mounts with the double underhooks (or a free-standing rack with 2 hooks)--you rest the top horizontal bar of the bike on the double underhooks and it self levels or something. I don't have room to store it vertically.
However, my new bike has the gear and brake lines running under the top horizontal bar (with a small amount of clearance). The gear lines are actually exposed wire and I notice when I was carrying it that I would bend them up to touch the bar if I wasn't careful handling it.
Question: the bike rack hooks would undoubtedly place a lot of pressure directly on the wires--could this constant pressure damage the brakes, gears, or wires? Or loosen them?
Suggestions on storage options?
