    Myself and some local TW buddies are going on a trail run and I’m wanting to see how you guys mount your gopro cameras to your rides. Right now I have the tripod mount, chest mount, helmet mount, and all the adhesive mounts. I want to stay away from the adhesives on the trucks for obvious reasons. I was wanting to purchase the roll bar mount and suction cup mount too. So lets see them.

    I bought my roll bar mount off of eye of mine. Its a custom mount & so beefier & easier to work with than oem. Russell has made many other custom mounts. Good company to deal with & has vids of all his stuff he makes. Quality stuff, fast shipping imo.
    Here is a link, scroll down through the list also on youtube he has some awesome free tutorials & on your side of the states.

    Yeah that could be a doozie if it falls off in the middle of the desert and your not keeping an eye on it. My suction cup should be in later this week.

    I got a cool angle today with this set up.

    I'd tie a string around it, then around something fixed, like a mirror or wiper (not sure how heavy these camera are). At least then if it comes un suctioned you have a life line to prevent losing it completely, or it falling under a tire for instance.

    What have you guys been using to edit your gopro footage? I tried to do some screen shots today on my Dell with windows vista but it was getting all pixialated reared the top. I've used iMovie with no problems what so ever. Anyone use a pc for editing?

    If your using mac, Final Cut Pro is the best. For PC, use sony vegas. I still need to buy a suction cup mount =\.

    figured I'd do an update on the places I mounted my new suction cup.

    I think this one would look great on nelson18matt's ride and watching that suspension do its thing.

    i was just looking at the site. Looks to me that the $99 version is mostly the same as the $300 motorsport version. Any suggestions?

    just saw your link. does it really matter i guess is the question?

    The $99 SD hero is standard definitnion and is not expandable.

    The $259 hero HD get you up to 1080p HD and can be expanded to a LCD backpack and an extra battery pack.

    one will get the job done, the other will get the job done looking good.
