    GoPro chest harness

    Can you adjust the angle such that if you're on dropbars you're not filming the ground or do you have to situp in a more erect position?

    I haven't tried riding with dropbars, but when I use the chest mount, I mount the gopro upside down. That gives me a lot of room to adjust the camera angle. I usually try to angle it so I get the bars near the bottom of the shot.

    @kingbobyjr is correct - you can mount your camera upside down in the GoPro Chest Mount (and make sure it is in upside down mode). By doing this you can rotate it to work no matter how far you are leaning over. Riding with drop bars, you will want to set it up so that it is almost pointing vertically upwards when you are standing upright - once you start riding it should be about right.
