I agree with everyone, kind of odd the first time...just didn't feel like I could ride the same as I could without it. Takes some getting used to especially if it's a bit heavier like the monopod I bought off Amazon and converted. Second time I didn't really notice it. I also agree it gives you much better footage compared to a helmet setup, etc.
The nice thing is you have to hold it semi steady so I don't have that retarded arm thing I do in all my helmet cam footage.
