HoboMaster Some downhill mountain biking at the local place to ride.



Rode down Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park on my road bike this summer.

I've got a road bike and mountain bike edit I'll share once I get them uploaded to youtube.
I wasn't disappointed with that footage (regular 720p I think) when using the Contour flex strapped to the down tube or the top tube, those are relatively stable. GoPro mounted to the bars also returns decent footage sometimes. The helmet cam was too damn wobbly, though, I suppose I should tighten the strap but it just doesn't fit snugly like my snow helmet.

firstx1017 Well, let's see.... we just used ours for zipling. Rigged up a mount on our shoe and helmet and it worked great. We have made a waterski handle and put it on the handle and that worked great. We have used the surfboard suction cup and that has worked. We put it on the paddle while paddleboarding also. Used on our motorcycle, on the car for autocrossing. On the kayak. And most of all snowboarding! We have many videos on our channel. Used it for hiking also. I'm sure there's more than I just can't remember off hand! We have 3 go pros so we try to capture things from all angles.
