How I dealt with it was to cut the standard spanner wrench so there was no handle,, then I took an old cheap 3/8 drive socket and cut it so I just had the square section and welded it to the spanner end.

Then you just insert a ratchet and spin away, I can easily get over 1/2 turn per reposition, and to loosen, just flip it and put the ratchet in the other side if needed. It also worked well on a buddies track bike, as I just put a 2' extension on it and adjusted his from under the seat, even though the adjusters were on the bottom.
