Is it ok or not to have your bike clamped into the bike stand for extended periods of time? I have a bike project going for about a month and wondered if I need to take it off the stand when I'm not working on it. It is clamped onto the seatpost. Thanks.

How stable is your workstand?

Don't over force the clamp if you're using a carbon fiber seat post. Other than that, the forces of a bike sitting there clamped to the stand are a lot less than your body weight sitting on it going fast over a rough road.

Very. Not worried about that. Wondered if I'm stressing the bike tubes by keeping it suspended by the seatpost.
A friend of mine has at least one of his bikes stored in his workstand. And I have also (if I remember correctly) have used my workstand to store my bike.

I've started to worry about my bikes that I have hung up by the front wheel for months. Any thoughts, guys/gals?
Thanks,
