Does anyone know or heard if it is bad for the seals or the fork to hang your bike on the wall and have all the oil fall towards the top of the fork. I dont have much room in my place and I am looking at a couple different storage options. Thanks for any advice!

Actually it's better since the splash oil is lubing the seals then and keeps them from drying out.

Have FUN!

Some forks have bushings under the seals that benefit when the bike is turned upside down. Regardless it doesn't hurt any fork and all of my bikes are hanging by their rear wheels for years. I also rub a few drops of oil on the stanchions and seals during storage.
