    Low angle POV GoPro mounting

    I have shot some video with my GoPro mounted along the bottom of the bike (see video below), however I do not like having the front tire so centered in the video. Is there a way to mount on the fork? Or perhaps on bike but offset to the side a little bit? I want some low angles, just not dead centered behind the front tire. Thanks in advance.

    You could try a ram mount on the fork. I've used one with success.

    I do that, too, with my Contour on a RAM roll cage mount. Love the camera angles.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Mount on the bottom tube but have the mount on the left or ride side versus on the bottom of the tube. Then you need a 90 degree mount and you are set. Here is example footage I did with mine.

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    That's just about the perfect angle I am looking for.
