    I only like the rear facing one and only cause it would be a good way to film someone following you. On some bikes I would be worried that the camera would get eaten by the tire though on a full compression. Unfortunately without others in view POV footage is just boring.

    I agree that the rearward facing one would be good for filming someone behind you, and the one facing forward only seems good to be showing the fork moving, you really don't see the trail or anything else.

    The forward position works pretty cool on jump lines, it's good to mix in that view along with some helmet and/or tripod mount stuff. I tried using the extra arms to get mine a bit further away from the bike, works OK but it can get shaky. I saw a video where the guy made a bracket to mount the camera at the rear der. It was pretty crazy, makes everything seem even faster.
