    Bike suspension angle with GoPro HD

    I thought this was a kinda cool angle to see the fork and shock both working.

    Testing a new angle with my GoPro HD.

    OP - that is a cool angle. For those with bikes with shocks on the down tube I've mounted with the GoPro on the downtube a bit forward of where you are (so you don't see the legs as much. Then looking forward you get the front shock. Looking backward you get the rear shock.

    It's particularly cool if you're getting air as you can see the bike leave the ground and the shock compress and extend

    None I've edited up as yet. It's all old footage from A-line in whistler that I never bothered using. Will see if I can put some up but it'll be a while till its a useable video

    Here's some with the ContourHD with the same angle I did edit for an article. The GoPro angles are about the same - just higher wide angle. The only difference is I use the GoPro handlebar/seatpost mount to clamp to the frame. The ContourHD is a bit faster to switch as its just the velcro mount

    Nice video, but if you shaved your legs you'd be waaaaaay faster.

    Ahhh, THAT'S the secret. I know, my legs are captivating, but if I shaved them you'd probably think I was a girl.
