    Found a great product that helps secure a trials bike.
    Tried a few different ways, tie downs from the handlebars- front shockies but the Tyrefix Ace Bikes system works a treat as it slides under the front mudguard, simple and easy. Latch seat belt system that connects to the buckle is smart. Fit one on the rear wheel as well and it doesn’t move.

    Nice setup . I've always tried to attach to the lower triple clamp , worried about shock load to the bars .

    And it doesn't help if you have to accidently brake as much as you can the rear of the bike should be secured too.

    He did indicate attaching one to the rear...

    I think it's a great alternative to a standard tie down setup. Though it dose look a bit more cumbersome to get in place under a trials bike fender.

    I myself have been considering making a wheel axel to triple clamp chalk to help limit the amount of fork compression. We will see how well it works.

    I put a cinch strap around the front brake lever to hold it on enough to keep the bike from swaying forward and back..
