I have my new dream bike (18' BMC Team Machine SLR01 One Disc). It has some DT Swiss PRC 1400 DICUT db 35 Carbon, Thru Axle (12mm) wheels. I am yet to get a dream commuter... so am riding this thing everywhere.
At work there is the standard hanging racks, kind of like the below. Except the wheels not against the wall, as the bar comes out horizontal. So the force is essentially completely vertical/down.
If that makes sense. Sometimes the spokes get a bit of tension on them.
My question — I am hanging my 7.7kg bike from the front wheel.
I am wondering if I am damaging my wheels, and so I should just park it on the ground and chain it up somewhere instead of hanging up for 8 hours a day, slowly getting warped?
Does anyone have any thoughts? Or their own experiences? Or am I being paranoid?
