Sorry, I did a search on this and didn't find the answer. I just purchased a new 2004 GF Tassajara on clear out (poor thing was the only new Tass in town . . . even the 2005's had been sold out). Anyway, I always stored my old Trek 850 in the back of my pathfinder for around town commuting and for lunchtime trailriding. I read in one thread on here, however, that you shouldn't store bikes with shocks upside down because it can cause oil to leak or something. (Yeah, yeah, I'm a noob, but at least I'm trying to learn ) Anyway, is it safe to store bikes on their side? It is resting on its pedal and handlebar in the back of my SUV so it isn't threatening the drive train, I'm more wondering about the Rock Shox Pilots that came stock with the bike. I can take it out of the back of the truck each night (which I didn't do with my old Trek 850), but while I'm at work I had intended leave it in the back of my vehicle and on its side for 8 hours a day (with a 20 minute ride mid-day). Should that be ok? Thanks in advance.
