nothing new or original here, just super excited about the new gopro and had to share my first edit..
what have you guys found to be the best mount/ angle for sweet mtb action with the gopro?
im definately not diggin the straight on top of helmet with no point of refrence.
so far im thinking the best is the chest mount.

I haven't tried the gopro on my helmet. Had the Vholdr and it made the helmet lopsided. I've been using the gopro chest mount and it's awesome! I did put the Vholdr on the side of the frame near the headset once and it was a good perspective.

I love the Chesty. It needs modification to be shake resistant but gives a nice field of view.

Thats the problem i have with the chesty - just shakes and makes it unwatchable

So I thought the chest mount would be best and wore it for a majority of my ride yesterday.
90% of my footage was of my toptube and knees :madman:
I was riding my XC bike, so I was hunched over most of the time. The camera was angled as far up as it would go. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Heres the footage I did end up getting: some sweet muddy San Diego singletrack :thumbsup:

Was the go pro mounted on a full face helmet?

looks really good on the lid may have to try that with mine.

Not a full face, that's a fox flux helmet. I ziptied a multi tool to the other side of the helmet to balance the weight. It worked great!

I like mixed views the most. Vids that show the same view the whole time get boring after awhile.

I haven't fully decided whether I prefer helmet or chesty most yet. I do definitely like how stable the helmet is, but the lack of reference is a bit of a drag. The chesty doesn't shake TOO badly on my local trails, but they're not all that rough, either.

I just added a tripod mount to my arsenal so I can get some fixed views - there are a few spots on my local trails that would be really cool for this.

tscheezy's mounts are awesome, though. the propeller and the cable cam really add some cool views.

I think the helmet mount looks great if you are closely following another rider. I also just got the tripod mount recently and tried it out for the first time on this video. I was really stoked at how good it looked despite low light .
