Shot on out to 'toga last weekend for some good 'ole SMBA shredding and some halloween good times. Got a pretty classic fall ride in on Saturday followed by all kinds of shenanigans Saturday night including winning scariest costume AND several inches of snow.
Got some ok footage using the chest mount. Last time I tried using it the angle was looking down too much. I added an additional linkage piece thing (what the hell are those things called?) to bump the camera out a bit so I could tilt it back a bit more to look more forward. Worked to a certain extent, if I'm sitting the angle is good but standing its still looking a bit more straight down than I would like. I think you really need the slacker geometry of a freeride or downhill bike for the chest mount to truly work. But I still got a fun little edit out of it...thank god I remembered to turn the camera on when Keith decided to do some beaver dam maintenance.
