Re:The Flip: Lower your Roadstar the Fatbike way... 2 Months ago  
I put mine on four point blocks and slid a piece of wood under the rear tire to just contact it firmly but not to raise the swing arm much. That seemed to be enough to take the load off the bolts. It's actually a lot easier to remove the tire and the plastic mud guard that's held on with four small bolts.. it makes everything much nicer and way more accessible. I've done it both ways. The little bit of extra work is worth it. You may or may not have to readjust the belt. Just recheck it to the manual. Good luck!

Nothing straightens my head out better than an entirely crooked road.
