    Good stuff Po!

    Cam does a nice job, not to mention the great urban riding.

    That was hellz-a-sweet dude

    Just goes to show that you can rip it, no matter where you are.

    Nice steady video too, think I might have to get one of those camera thingies when I am doing something worth taping.

    Sweet dude. Youy will definetly know when you bottom out.(or maybe i have just been bottoming out really hard but its been getting better) I think im just going to get a stiffer spring though. Also acouple of questions about the camera...i think i might get one for xmas or something...how long do the batteries last? How long does the 1gb sd card last for? And how do you aim where you want it to point at?

    bmb - Nah dude... i'm sure you could do it too. Real no brainer, just relax and let go... and yea, it's a really sweet camera... You should get one...

    madman - Yupp. That bottom out was harsh enough that you can hear me go oooofffff... was about 5 feet to flat i think. I guess i was asking for it when i hucked to flar... lol. 2gb sd card records for an hour. Batteries last about 3 hours... i suggest getting a card reader to transfer files though as to not eat up batteries... Dumb me on losing batteries and not getting some serious dh footage last weekend... lol As for mounts, Go Pro Cameras dont have the mounts yet. Their mounts; frame, helmet will be launched on November first along with a wide angle lense. I'm definitely getting my hands on some of those... right now i'm just using the wrist strap and strapping it onto my chin guard on my helmet... seems to hold up... XD

    The only thing I dont like about vsocial is you cant make it bigger/full screen. You should start putting you movies on mtbmovies.com instead.

    o wait i forgot that they changed video hosts and now it sux...cant zoom in or downlaod any more....gayyyy...that place used to be so cool. They didnt compress the vids and you could download everything but now its changed and i forgot that it sucks again. I guess they still dont ocompress the videos very much which is good but when they are the size of a postage stamp on your screen it doesnt make a difference.
