Saw a picture of this and wanted to get involved.

This took two small packs of Sugru rolled them up flatten them and then stick on a flat mount

How high is your peak? looks like its pointing right up to the sky?
I suppose it will work better on a DH lid to my Parachute?

The peak is quite adjustable on this lid. A mate of mine Matt has his in the same position on an urge down o matic

I made a similar mount using one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261741592870? ... EBIDX%3AIT for the Sir Digby Chicken Cesar style of video, will need to flip the video 180 though.

The camera has a mode in built to run upside down

Here is some Visor mount footage from this weekend on the Vicious Valley to A 470 runs at Bike Park Wales



It could have done with a tiny bit of tweaking to the angle but overall i'm pretty happy with the results.

It doesnt fish eye as much as the GoPro does it, gives a much better depth of shot?
i think you need need it slightly down to see the hands/wheel movement? (otherwise you were on the floor the whole time ;) )

Its a toughie because the stability of the helmet mount is good for tracking other riders but as you point out makes it look like you sat down the whole time.

Maybe i will look into a Fish eye adapter to see if it captures a bit more bar action.

i wasn't on the floor!

Yeah I thought that last night, my previous iPhone holder fish-eyed a lot more, more than go pro perhaps.

Had a play with chest mount which always looks best IMO, did some vids at Danbury but needed to angle it up more, too much shoe gazing :)
