    Winter storage?

    Curious to know where folks store their bike during winter...
    I have left my older HT bike and the kids bikes in the unheated garage for the past 10 years with no issues, but now that I own a FS bike that cost me a lot, I was wondering if I should store it in the basement instead.
    Could the cold (e.g. -30 Celsius) cause any damage to some of the parts (suspension, hydraulic brakes, tubeless coating,??)?

    I ride mine all winter... Occasionally I bring it in to thaw out, if need be. Failing that, I'd park it in my basement if I couldn't ride.

    Mine have all spent winters outside both in Alberta and Ontario. I have not had any issues from this. Generally just a basic tuneup in the spring and a replacement of the old stans (seems to dry out over the year anyway), then things are good to go. For more security you could keep them in the house but other than that, no issues that I have experienced.

    Nope.

    Well, I've never damaged any of this stuff by riding at -30c, so I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it should be safe just sitting around at the same temp.

    As per the other guys, I often keep my bikes in the basement for easy winter maintenance purposes
