Since the winter months have set in, I only get out about once a week. I have been keeping my Rize in the basement rather than the garage. Is there any reason not to hang a bike with a lefty upside down when storing for a few weeks at a time?

Thanks,
Steve

no reason to worry. it will be fine.
If I hang my Carbon RLC it loses all control over rebound.Cycling the fork a few times ended up fixing it the second time, but the second time I actually had to have the rebound damper replaced. I know that you, Mr. Captain Pabst, are a lefty expert so i don't know if its just related to the Fox internals.

i hang my RLC, DLR SL, and PBR from their front wheel all the time, potentially you had a bad seal in your rlc, as after cycling the fork a few times the oil will work its way back into the rebound circuit.

hmm... I was hanging it completely upside down or by the rear wheel. I just don't hang my road bikes now. They're easier to lift onto the ceiling anyway.
I'm hanging mine completely upside-down and it's a PBR MAX .

upside down is fine.........

Just make sure you didnt get water in the boot plowing through a creek or something. If I dunk mine, I just cut the tie wrap off and check

Irrelevant post... My buddy has a Reba SL that he was hanging upside down in the garage and at some point during the day the cap came off the stanchion and he pored oil over his head;p
