I believe it should be touching the ground , i dont think it floating off the ground is safe

You just roll the bike directly onto the chock. I have this on my trailer and it works very well. The 3 adjustments are for different wheels diameters.

One thing you should keep in mind is that it's best to keep the surface this chock is mounted on as level as possible. My trailer was canted forward quite a bit at first and it made pulling the wheel out of the chock very difficult. I had to get a riser hitch to level out the trailer.

I agree, I dont trust the bolts/strength to keep it floating. If the bolt/pivot point gives, bike falls down a inch and now the straps are loose.

Would the top or bottom be for the bigger diameter tire? Not to good at geometry haha

The anwser to that is just try it on each one until it fits right and the wheel is on the ground. Its just like trying to find a chick with good p*ssy at the bar, you dont know until you try it in which case i like to try them all and find which ones the best fit
