    WOW!

    I really loved this video. THe trails look so fast. So different from the stuff i ride here in florida. I really liked the part where you you got caught up on the roots and toppled over. The camera catching your shadow was really nice. Hope you did not get hurt on that though :P

    By the way -- what is that song toward the end? I really like it and I have heard it before but I can never figure out who it is.

    Nice stuff!

    Quick564 - what camera did you use for that? I have been thinking of getting one.

    I used the GoPro Helmet Hero (wide angle lens), it seems to work pretty well. The only beef I have with it is you can't see what you've recorded until you get it on the computer. But for the price you can't beat it!

    How are the mounts for it...I dont know that I would put it on my helmet, but maybe somewhere on the frame to get a picture of the suspension working??

    The mounts are great, so far so stable. It comes with a selection of different mounts, which is nice. I've seen vids of the suspension, but it may be tough to watch a whole vid from that angle. Would be a great angle to mix in though!

    I sure miss it too, except Manzanita. Never got up the final steep rock garden. Tried lots of times though...

    very nice vid. I can't believe I never rode there when I lived in Redwood City for years...lame of me to not know about that one.
