    Contour HD mounting options?

    Looking for ideas on mounting the Contour HD so I can get some "GoPro-style" chest cam footage.

    Anyone have an idea on how to go about this?

    Thx in advance!

    My recommendation would be "don't". But I don't like the ET looking arms you get from that perspective because of the wide FOV.

    Other than that, I don't have a recommendation. I think there are mounts out there you can use, though.

    Here's one: RAM Chest Mount for VholdR Contour 1080p - YouTube Check at about :50 into the video.

    I'd just like a little variety to the vids and some chest cam footage would break up the monotney of endless helmet cam footage, imo

    What about frame mounted? Mine's mounted along the headtube. I have a Lefty, so no cables on the right side and I get a nice clear picture.

    Not sure what else will show the trail instead of the bike.

    Reverse mount under the seat if you're riding in a group (and not slow and usually last like me!)?
