IS IT AC­TU­ALLY BAD TO TURN YOUR BIKE UP­SIDE DOWN?

Bicycling (South Africa) - - My Bikes -

There’s no im­me­di­ate harm in it un­less you have a GPS de­vice on your han­dle­bar that might get scratched. But here’s why I don’t do it, per­son­ally: the bike may top­ple over and dam­age the de­railleur hanger if it falls to that side. Or, leak­ing wa­ter bot­tles could dump a sug­ary mix all over your bike. I say it’s bet­ter to lie the bike on its non-drive side after re­mov­ing your wheel. No need to com­pound what can al­ready be a frus­trat­ing fix.
