Suspended by one wheel? *LINK*

Posted By: Barry Wilson
Date: 16 November 2008

Today in a fit of enthusiasm I decided to tidy the garage. It was brought about by our return to a land based existence, and the fact that our two Bromptons and our pride and joy, a very new tandem, must share a garage with our sons bikes; 3 MTB's and a road bike. I decided to suspend the solos from the joists so the tandem could live beneath them. So, now to the problem. Two of the MTB's have hydraulic brakes and Rock Shocks front suspension and I'm not sure whether they would enjoy being hung from a single wheel, either the back wheel or the front. It could mean the master cylinder is lower than the slave cylinder and air might thus enter the system. Also can suspension forks be inverted for long periods. I've seen many bikes in transit and inverted on car roofs but did they have hydraulics?

I'm posing this, perhaps rather mundane question, on this forum because I was so impressed by the sheer weight of informed responses to the last question I posed here. Thank you for that.

Any advice welcomed.
