Has anyone had any experience with a bike hanging on one of these for the winter? I'm thinking my tire will be permanently deformed by spring.
I doubt there will be any permanent deformation. I would just leave the tire deflated over the winter and you're likely to be fine.
Knows the weight of my bike to the nearest 10 pounds.
