    No it does not cause damage to your rim.

    I'd worry more about evading potholes, babyhead rocks, critters when it comes to extending the life of your rims and/or yourself.

    Also, I find it funny the OP calling out people on post count when he/she has 1400 or so posts since just May of 2010.

    You now have a cantilever with one arm about 350mm, the other 10mm. The fulcrum is the contact point of tire with wall. The mechanical advantage is a factor of 35.

    Analogous to the situation where you use a claw hammer to draw a nail.

    With a bike of 10kg, the resultant force on the rim is thus about 350kg. If this doesn't tear the hook from the wall, it can surely dent the riim - or worse.
    That's why swat teams always have a bike with them in case there is a hook in the wall they need to break through.
    Blows your hair back.

    Hanging by hooks and crap is no issue whatsoever. If there is a lesson to be learned on storage it's that it's a good idea to spin the wheels and rotate the crank every couple of months. Helps prevent false brinelling damage to the bearings.

    These things can scratch the hell out of your toptube if there is a cable. That's why I prefer wheel or saddle tip hanging.

    What kind of ceiling is that? Is that basement, attic or garage?

    i can hang one of my bikes from a wheel when i take the light rail for an hour.

    but if i did this at home, i could not rest.

    Why is the vapor barrier on the basement side which I assume is colder than the floor above? If there is insulation above that, it will become soaked in not too long.
