Frequent removal of wheels

Due to storage space limitation, I might have to do frequent removal of wheels to store the road bike I am about to buy. Is there anything bad about doing this?

It's a nuisance to remove the rear wheel because you have to deal with the chain, and the rear derailleur can end up bumping on the floor, so you might find it irritating to have to do it all the time, even though it might only take a minute or two. If you can get away with just removing the front wheel, and if it has a quick release, that's a lot more tolerable. But the best solution is to find an easier storage arrangement.

You might consider a vertical bike hanger.

You might consider these:

There are also clear plastic chain stay protectors.

You can also hang your bike by one of both wheels. Most bicycle shops carry vinyl hooks.

They also make wall racks.
