...I imagine that you could just take the wheel off, remove the top nut and compress the shock. Leaving the lower nut in place to act as the "vise" in the adjustment procedure koni recommends to save some time.
That may not seem inconvenient to you, but it certainly isn't what I'd call user friendly and wasn't going to work for me. The convenience of adjustability wasn't really that convenient if I had to take the shock off in order to adjust it. That's exactly what I was talking about with what's needed in the i, and why I went Bilstein.
