    Would you happen to recall where you got the bar for the narwhal from? I'm also assuming that the back of the mount has a counter weight attached, can you provide more details on this entire setup?

    Would you be so kind as to remove the duplicate (quoted) photos from your last post? They take up a lot of room. Thanks.

    I got the aluminum tubing from a machine shop. Its 5/8" O.D. The counterweight is also aluminum.
    1 3/4" diameter, 2 1/2" long.

    Just got my GoPro today...I was thinking about combining the straps from my Camelbak with a chest harness. Has anyone seen or done anything like this?

    I love this mount - very simple but it looks really solid.

    As is, its stability was probably questionable, but it was never used since I purchased a Wingnut shortly after this photo was taken and my wife inherited my Camelpak.
    A simple upgrade would have been some sort of a wide / fitted back-plate of urethane foam (like a man-bra cup - LOL) to stop the sideways motion.

    I made a mount by attaching a flat adhesive GoPro mount with two bolts through a flat-topped headset topcap. Works ok, but there is some high frequency vibration. Nice and smooth when the bike is in the air. Can't see the stem in shot when using 720p 16:9 mode. I will post pics when I get to 10 posts.

    I also made one from an old Vistalite handlebar mount for attaching to the seatpost. This one works really well. I tried it on the handlebars but with less success.

    Strangely, on playback, even when the image is jumping up and down with vibration, the lens flare is perfectly smooth.

    I will pinch that idea too. I was wondering what I could use those bolts on the downtube for and that looks like just the ticket.

    Thought I'd share some of the custom mounts I've made for the GoPro.


    Example footage: Pugsley on Patrol 55
    Finished version was painted black.

    Note: GoPro zip-line shot after 1:35mins. Other foootage by Panasonic SD900

    Cutting/drilling plexiglass

    Great idea. What did you use to cut the plexiglass?
