MTB BRAKES: Can I keep the bike upright in the garage?

Can placing the bike vertically cause various types of problems? For example bringing air bubbles into the brake system?

Keeping the bike vertically does not cause any type of problem but it is right to be aware of an aspect related to the brakes or, better said, to the air in the brake system. If we apply the brake with the bike vertically, when it is released it will facilitate the passage of air. In short, you create depression, and therefore, when the piston returns, it will certainly draw in air.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
