Damper Rod Orientation

I bought my Transition Blindside about a year ago second-hand. The frame was equipped with a Fox Van R shock. It always annoyed me that the rebound adjuster faced upwards to the top tube because it was hardly possible to get a grip on the adjuster.

When I recently serviced my shock I realized that the damper rod orientation can be changed by simply turning the rod! Yes, it’s pretty awkward that I didn’t think of it earlier…
