MTB storage

Should I hang a mountain bike with full suspension and hydrolic breaks on it's wheels or hanging from a single wheel on the wall?

I've had my bike hanging from a single wheel, and when I take it down the breaks don't work. I have to operate them a few times to get the fluid moving. Is it bad to store it hanging by one wheel?

I have the same type of MTB setup and store mine on a shelf.I hear it’s a PITA if air gets where it shouldn’t be and Its also a PITA just to find a shop that could bleed your type of system.Ive been told there are different types of bleed kits.Im interested in the feed back as well.

Not a problem, just squeeze those brake levers a few times before you take off. It is actually good for the fork to be upside down every now and again since it lubricates the seals.
