How is everyone getting chest strap mounted footage. I tried my new GoPro HD with the chest strap and all the footage is centered on my front tire with the camera angled all the way up. Am I doing something wrong, or does everyone ride sitting straight
up?

You're doing it wrong. Do a search - i posted an article with some setup tips and others have discussed it too. Look for GoPro Mounts

You may need to adjust the angle for standing shots differently than seated shots. To see less knees and less "elasticman arms" while seated, I'll usually mount the camera very high on my chest and lean way forward. I don't recommend this on technical downhills. My chest mount allows for more flexible (height) placement on my chest:
