No way that headset brinelled because of hanging. Grease might have dried up, or maybe a cold water pipe overhead dropped some water into it, causing rust, but it couldn't have indented just hanging there.

Maybe somebody is sneaking your bike out for some late night trailblazing?

I recently took a 1984 Motobecane ProLight that I had hanging by the front wheel for a ride & noticed the headset had an "indexed" feeling to it, but I am sure 2 years ago the headset was fine, does hanging a bike by the front wheel possibly hurt the headset? should they be hanging from the rear?

Thank You,
