Going to buy some canyon dancers to help with tying down the bikes next track season. Would you recommend the original canyon dancers or the canyon dancer 2 with the cups? I worry about how far to the end of the bar the 2's cups are.

Opinions? Recommendations?

I have the original and they have done just fine. I do remember reading negative things about the cups but I can't recall where or why that was sorry.

I have the original and they work fine. A wheel chock always help to keep the front wheel straight too. If the clip ons turn at all when you hit a bump the dancers will need to be re tightened or the bike will lean. Not a big deal though.

They did start to eat up my driven grips a bit, but those were soft and not a fault of the dancers.

Are the wheel chocks easy to install in a pickup bed? Are they easily removable? I'm thinking of buying either the Canyon Dancers or a wheel chock.... Can't decide tho.

Would like an answer in how easily installed/removable wheel chocks are. I think those and CDs would be perfect.

Bump for an answer!
:laugh


I want a wheel chock only if it's easily removable... I don't haul the bike a lot, so having a permanant fixture in the Ranger bed isn't worth it.

If you get a Baxley you don't have to anchor it down, just put the bike in it and tie down the motorcycle and you are good to go.

CD2s are way better than the CD1s. baxleys and PTRs are way better than CDs.
Considering I can get 2 CDs for $45 or so and Pitbull restraints are $280 each... I know which I'd like. That and we don't want to drill too many holes through the pickup's bed.
