    Front Fork-Mount GoPro Footage

    Went out yesterday to test my front fork GoPro mount. Still needs a little tweaking, but I like it so far!

    Cool. Did you improvise or does GoPro make a mount for the fork?

    Do you know if the roll bar mount would work? I still need to try it out. I am just concerned that I will not have clearance to the tire/spokes.

    I use the Contour/Ram Rollbar mount on my fork. Easy to adjust to stay away from the spokes. I put the mount in front and to the outside of the fork so it is less likely to be sucked into the wheel if it does come loose.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Nice! You'll like it.

    I made a "how-to" video because I knew I'd get questions about it:

    Crap, I bought the wrong one. No wonder it didn't fit on the fork.
    Still works.
