Storing bike upside down

Posted By: Peter Valente

I can't now find the message but, a while ago, someone asked about the possible ill effect on the suspension of hanging a bike upside down or at least off the horizontal. There was some discussion and I have just been looking at the online manual for my fork preparatory to some maintenance when I found my opinion confirmed.

For those who may be concerned I refer you to http://www.foxracingshox.com/fox_tech_center/owners_manuals/08/eng/2008_om_eng.htm where we are encouraged to "Store the bicycle upside down as it allows oil to run down to the foam rings and keeps them lubricated and ready for your next ride".

I hope this puts folk's minds at rest.
