Hey luckz88, I used to use Canyon Dancers but I have converted to Cycle Cinch. Canyon Dancers always used to FU my grips. No problems with Cycle Cinch. They don't suck or anything like that but I will never use Canyon Dancers on my bike again. I just wish Cycle Cinchs were cheaper. $50...... Check them out when you get a chance.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

Thanks for the headsup...If don't have the canyon dancer twisted it will mess up your grips...I believe there is a twist in the material that goes inbtween the straps where the cusion is that sets on your tank...Either product will do the job though...
