    Thanks, I'm using an iMac / iMovie too and it's easy to use, but it's lacking. I have the handle bar mount and wrist mount on my list of things to buy. I'm not really a fan of having it mounted to any of my helmets. It creates too much drag and while snowboarding or trail riding on the dirt bike it gets caught in tree branches.

    I clamp the seatpost mount on the top my mono pod. The mount has a bit of a lip that rests on the the branch and the long part of the mono pod acts as a counterweight. Hope that makes sense.

    I was pretty mad too. It was painful. It made me walk funny for at least a week afterward. :D

    have you ever tried to take the 3m stickies off of your helmet? I want to mount mine on a friends but am always hesitant to ask since I'm not sure how its going to leave it afterwards.

    I put one on the front bumper of my truck. It was on there for about 2 months. Came off just fine. Took a lot of pulling and whatnot, but it didn't take any paint off, or leave any marks. Really lets you know that it's not going to fall off, if you're worried about it "unsticking"

    I have the suction cup mount now, so I took off the bumper one. I swear you could pull dents with the suction cup. The thing is insane. I've got some GoPro video of turkey hunting and driving I could upload to this thread. Just gotta put it on my laptop and whatnot. Ahh so much work!

    No I have not tried yet.
    Maybe with some fishing line like for our truck badges followed up with some goo gone?

    It's just a bitch to pull it off. After it's off it doesn't leave any residue. However, on the visor of my Gyro snowboarding helmet, it pulled off a little of the "paint" or the graffic. It doesn't pull anything off on the actual helmet, though.

    I stuck a mount on the tip of my snowboard this past season which lasted about 3 runs before it popped off. I then had to pull the sticky off of the mount so that I could see about getting a replacement. It was difficult to pull it off of the mount, but didn't leave behind any residue.

    There you go!

    We were on a trail with a ton of Manzanita on it. I caught a huge branch and thought I was coming off the bike. Apparently, I didn't duck low enough :eek:
