Initially I was a little worried that I don't have any additional supports bolted to the frame, but it's been 4-5 months now and they haven't budged at all.
Any chance for some pics? I've been interested in replacing mine with the medium-length cones for a while, and I'm about the most timid person on the planet when it comes to doing anything like that without some photographs.
