I've had that problem too. I considered getting some plastic acorn nuts to
cover them up so the sharp edges on the bolts aren't the first thing your
hits. I've seen these on kids bikes, but I haven't found any yet...

Most hardware stores have metal nuts which are covered (they are like normal
nuts with a half sphere attached).  You may need to put a normal nut or a few
washers on as spacers as obviously the covered nuts don't***on too far.  

I've found this to work well on my seats and it certainly saves your fingers.
Another possibility is trying to find some *** valve covers that will fit
the bolts.
