My guess is he's using it as a front foot block...
either that or he only had long hardware left and didn't wanna crank nuts all the way down.
I feel like I'd need to use a DH truck to really get this board solid.

i'm not too worried about using a DH truck.
the wheelbase is sooooo long that i can't even turn inside
my driveway; i put the stiffest bushings I could in the back
and the ones up front are only slightly less so.
speed woobbles? not likely on the hills i'm riding.
with those wheels, the damn thing rolls forever.

So I guess my question is, why are the bolts upside down?
I could see a bit of pain if that pup bounced up on you.................
I know why the long ones were used, but I would still want the smooth round tops, on top.

The long part of bolts down could interfere with the hanger(?)
I'm sure CO will mount the proper bolts soon- that would take
less energy than we spent talking about it.....

Agreed, but it is hard to do anything else on a message board.............

They should be far enough forward and back to miss the hanger, and this is not REALLY supposed to turn.............
