Hanging bike by Flo wheels

Postby aravilare » June 5th, 2014, 12:20 am

My office has a vertical hanger bike storage system (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rubbermaid-F ... /100387745); there has been some concern about non-structural fairing not being suited to sustaining the 20lb load. Do you guys have any insights on if repeatedly storing a bike this way would cause damage to either the Flo 60 or 90?

We do not recommend that. The carbon fairing is not structural and not intended for supporting a load. This actually voids your warranty.

Sorry about that.

Take care,

Does that apply to the Flo30 as well?

No. This only applies to our wheels with carbon fairings. You can hang the bike by the FLO 30s without any issues.
