Product Review: CycleCynch & Group Buy

This thing totally kicks the crap out of the Canyon Dancer I had been using for years. No more twisted grips or straps loosening up causing the bike to lean one way or the other & end up rubbing against something in the trailer!

I got turned onto this product by a fellow STT instructor & it just plain rocks! Very simple design, but extremely well constructed & now I no longer have to stop & check my bike after the first 5 miles to see if it has settled & moved in the trailer

When I posted this on my RC forum it spawned a group buy so if you want in send me an e-mail to [email protected] & I'll get you on the list. once we get the quota of committed buyers each buyer will be responsible for calling the retailer & making his own purchase etc...

Retail is $49.99, GROUP BUY Price will be $39.95 plus shipping (prolly about $6 or $7) & if you buy more than one shipping of course will be combined.

Give us a rundown of how it compares to the operation of the Canyon Dancer. That is what I am using now, but you peaked my interest with an alternative. It looks like the cover over the clip-on has a D-ring.

Hey Mike, How the hell does that thing install? Can you post a picture with it on the bike. I've used the CD for the past 1-1/2 years and love it.

Yup very simple.

There are step by step instructions on their site
http://www.cyclecynch.com/CCpages/CCinstall.html

But basically YOU set the length between the handelbar loops & lock them into place then use the D-rings to snug down the bike with your tie-downs.

In contrast the Canyon Dancer has constantly moving parts that usually end up loosening up a little when the suspension travels on big bumps & that allows the bike to move around and/or the harness to twist your grips/controls I cannot tell you how many times I have opened my trailer & found my bike had shifted & was leaning one way or the other while using the Canyon Dancer harness, but with the CycleCynch it just holds it in place perfectly. They are both very similar in design, but the CycleCynch is just better...

I can see the improved design over what I used on my Gix1 handlebar strap in my Avalanche on the trip down to the GAP. These ones have an improved design in the glove and D-Ring vs the competitive products. I didnt so much have a problem with the strap itself but with finding decent tie downs that effectively cinch and hold.
