Cycle Cinch Vs. Canyon Dancer

Trackdays are in full force right now and one of the main things is transporting your bike to and from the track.. So I ask you guys what are you using and what experiences have you had from them. Also state whether you trailer your bike alone or with a buddy. I know its a pain strapping down my sv alone especially without a kickstand..

Thanks for your imput

Cycle Cynch IMO I like the adjustable strap between the two loops as opposed to the Canyon Dancer just using tension on the loops to hold on. Cycle Cynch also comes with the tie downs made on. Not a big deal. But justifies the difference in price. The Canyon Dancer was hellacious on my grips to get the bike actually secured. The Cycle Cynch was used this past weekend with 0 effects of my brand new grips.

I use only tie downs. I tried a canyon dancer once, and my bike fell over with it. My clip-on was loose and it moved, which caused the canyon dancer to fall off and my bike fall.

I just secure the tie downs to the upper triple and have never had a problem. I am sure the canyon dancer would have worked fine, as long as i had my clip-on tightened, but after that i just have been to afraid to use it....lol

Cycle Cinch, it's not nearly as hard on your grips as the Canyon Dancer, at least from what I've seen. My buddies have Canyon Dancers and they've messed up their grips on both of their bikes. But either one is better than nothing.

I also use a Baxley and it's a great investment.

Neither. Nick, so it won't fall over, just lay the bike on its side and you should be good

Only kidding, The pitbull trailer restraints are badass. There's another company that makes a similar design. Forgot who? Anyways,I want to get one of those whenever I snag a trailer. .I don't think you can go wrong with one of those. You don't even have to strap the bike down.

That pitbull setup is sweet too. I saw a video on those. They are pretty pricey though if I remember correctly.

I use a cycle cinch, the oldschool one WITHOUT the straps. I probably shouldn't, but I load the suspension up using ratchet straps. I've already lost one bike off the side of a trailer, I'll take premature fork wear over a $10k "oops" any day. I use a baxley as well. I have a track bike (no kickstand) so during the season the bike sits in the baxley in the garage too.

If you already have a wheel chock and secure the bike in it real good, you won't even have to strap the front end down. You will have to find a different way to do it with the trailer, but in my truck I strap my tailgate up and it pushes my bike all the way into the chock so it wont move backwards. From there I just strap the rear down. It's so solid like that I don't even have to strap the front!

im on my phone right now but go to harbor frieght.com and it is the one for 39.99 orginally and its 3 way adjustable for sportbikes. or cruisers.. my dads goldwing sat in it fine.. I would recommend it.. it held my sv up fine and with no kickstand I needed something I could drive it onto for support its hard to hold your bike up with one hand and search for a rear stand..
