    GoPro Handlebar Mounts

    I think I am getting addicted to this little camera. It is so much fun. Here's a video I shot using different pov's of the handlebar mount. This was shot at the "Anthills" in Houston, TX.



    Please feel free to offer any suggestions or comments.

    Pretty good footage. Really not as bumpy as I would have expected using a handlebar mount. Do you just have the standard Gopro handlebar/seat post mount?

    All I use is the bar mount, and I like it. I do not care for the Chest Mount POV. Helmet is ok, but not really my preference. I may use the Handlebar Mount Kit and mount to my Seat post also and try and rear facing video or two...

    Yes, I just used the standard handlebar/seat post mount. I thought the video would be shakier too.

    I am not a fan of the helmet pov either. I am going to experiment with the roll bar mount this weekend.

    Thanks. That trail has some cool flowy parts but it also has alot of rooty sections, steep drops and short-steep climbs.

    GoPro Handlebar Mounts

    I want to try the chest mount for front facing views just to be more steady than the handlebar mount. I would also like to see if i can mount the roll cage mount on some of the larger diameter areas like frame or even lower part of the fork for different views/angles. I think that my handlebar mount is far too shaky. Here is one example.

    The larger rollbar mount should mount to the bottom bar of the frame for the most part unless you have an odd frame size or something of that nature. I mounted mine to get a behind the front fort view.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Lawson, those are exactly the different types of angles that I would like to get. Thanks.
