    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.

    Here's my solution: GoPro tripod mount, a piece of 1" tubing, a 1" stem cap, a 1/4"-20 bolt and finally a universal velcro mount for flashlights.

    Nothing all that recent, but here's one where I used the above shown mount with the camera attached to the seatpost.

    i like those fork mounted options Carloswithac and Lawson Raider . nice spot! I'll have to try it out.

    I've got a boom pole that i mount on the back of my frame, gives a pretty dynamic look to the shots. What do you guys think?

    This is a couple years old, but I had made a mount that attaches to water bottle cage bolts. It is out of the way of pedaling and works pretty good.

    I have a k-edge handlebar mount, and a piece of 1-1/4" aluminum counterbored to fit my rear axle bolt. That allows me to position the camera anywhere within say a 4" radius (or whatever the length of that mount is) of the rear axle.

    Nope. Never whacked it once. It sits a little in front of where the rotational radius of my legs go.

    That's a cool mount.
