    GoPro and Rigid SS

    Haven't used my GoPro on my Unit before, so I thought I'd hook 'er up today. All I have is a handlebar mount. I ride some really rocky stuff here in SoCal--pretty much unavoidable. Man, the footage is almost comical---really drove home how much of a beating I was taking! Time for a chest mount I guess

    I've just got a couple of bar mounts for my GoPro's.
    The chest mount can also be nausea inducing when editing in some situations...

    Please don't go from bad view to worst view, chest view is great if you want to show off your top tube, knees or stem.
    Use the GoPro Helmet Cam on the helmet as it was intended.
    Warning, you may look like a teletubby but at least the footage will be 100x better than the view before...

    So, top of the helmet.
    Or side?
    Under chin?
    Under peak?

    I tried top of helmet for a while when I first got my GoPro. I didn't care for the perspective it gave things---mainly, it made even the gnarliest trails I was riding look….flat! I'd show my wife and she was totally unimpressed
    But, it'd be better than the seizure-inducing footage I got on the bar of the rigid ss!
