    29er Downhill at Telluride Mt. Village Bike Park

    I'm from Texas, so this is my first ever downhill run. I'm on a 2010 Stumpjumper FSR Expert 29er. This is the easy (blue square aka "No Brainer") track at the Park. I managed to wipe out on one of the easiest sections (relaxed I guess). I don't think my skills or bike were up to the task of the black diamond runs....

    Nice, do you have any tips on camera mounting? I'm having trouble keeping mine that steady, using Contour vented helmet mount...

    1) Take the mount to the store to try it on different helmets. I bought a Bell Ukon FS. Only about $30. The vent holes are perfect for the mount.

    2) Run the straps through holes that are offset so that the the loops can't slide in either direction. (See photo).

    3) Pull the straps very tight when clamping.

    4) You want to have the tilt position all the way back (tilted up). If you have it in the middle, it will wobble and record that clacking noise. All the way back should provide the best view anyway.

    Probably pretty boring on a Pitch, yes.

    Looks like it would be fun to rip down on a hardtail at high speed.

    Hmmm, interesting. I wondered what that noise was. I'll have to try the tilt, I usually keep it in the middle position. I've been placing a piece of closed cell foam (cut from old Ridgerest mat) underneath mine which seems to help a little bit anyway. Thanks...

    I could tell you looked around at 3:51 to see if anyone saw you...
    Had to be right near a parking lot, huh.

    ...been there, done that.

    At 5:24 it looks like you're going 50mph! Cool vid.
