    Tripod for GoPro

    Was wondering what everyone uses as a tripod to place their GoPros on the side of the trail? Ive been looking at the Joby units, but some of them dont get good reviews. Was looking for some other options that are light and easy to carry on the bike.

    I just bought some cheapie telescopic tripod from Target for like $15. I use a Contour Roam and just put the adapter on the tripod so I can just mount it on and slide it off easily. Its compact and light as well. You can find it on Amazon as well..

    Exact same method as Shakester. Just went to the department store and found the cheapest collapsible tripod there. They are perfect for the small size and weight of a POV cam, and destroying them in a crash isn't a big deal.
