    First Completed Mountain Bike GoPro video

    After a week of finding the right angle, modifying the gopro chesty mount, and eating dirt multiple times on the same trail, I finally got an awesome footage (or at least I think). Totally stoke right now, I don't care what the world says (tho feedback are always welcome), but wanted to share it with the world lol. All I've done was messed with the color (I'm still a noob at video editing). Also a noob at mountain biking, too scared to go any faster lol.

    Looks good. What editing software did you use?
    '11 Specialized Enduro Expert for the trails
    '13 Felt Z4 for the road

    looks good, but maybe do the same run 3-4 times with the cam mounted in different places on the bike to give you more angles to work with when you edit

    I'm using power director 10...yea I'm going to try to get more angles next time, thinking of a way to make the helmet strap more stable and a way to attach my gopro to the bike frame

    Was that on the black edition? The frames seem a little choppy. Might want to look at the FPS setting on the camera and the editing system. Looks like an awesome trail though! Have fun man! Break up the video more with maybe scenic areas and such. Good job!

    Yea I was using the black edition with the settings at 720p 60 fps...I think the choppiness might be coming from either my editing program or from vimeo. It looks a lot smoother on my computer compared to on vimeo, so it might be vimeo. Btw I was wondering what is the best format to upload it online. I assumed mp4, dunno if avi would like better

    It's a combination of single track and fire road...There's actually three trails: scott trail, jedi trail, and jackrabbit all of which are pretty fun...The jedi and jackrabbit are both singletrack while the scott is both singletrack and fire road. I think overall with the climb up and going back down is only about 7 miles total so its not too bad. You can go pretty fast downhill...they are also these crazy man made drops if your into that, one at the top of the hill and one at the middle...should check out some of the youtube videos...i think this is from a year ago but i dunno where that bike park at with the berm, jumps, and stuff:

    This was the very first thought that I had watching the video. I would prefer to not wear them, but once you take a spill they are one of the first things you wish you were wearing.

    That trail looks like a lot of fun. I'd imagine that the riders that have more skill than me could really blast through that and spend a good amount of time in the air.

    Looks to me like the footage might have been sped up a bit. I could be wrong, but the bumps and handlebar movements seem fast and unnatural. I do like the colors in this video and the trail looks sweet.

    I like the continuous shot videos provided the trail looks continuously fun - this one does. If the trail has too many flat, straight or slow parts then cutaways or rider shots keep the interest.

    BTW, the first time you tear up a set of gloves in a crash you're glad you had them on.

    You got the chesty mounted perfectly...not too or too low. Like others have said, if you could do another run or two with the camera at different angles or perhaps following someone else, it would add to the video.

    Aloha, at the risk of going OT, I too prefer riding without gloves. The only time I will wear gloves is if it gets cold. However, here in Hawaii, don't need them.

    OK, back to topic, great video, great job. I too am finally getting around to learning how to edit and post videos. Keep 'um coming.
