You're a braver man than I am for some of those streets you're riding on.

Those streets look as bad as some of the streets I ride on, except now ours are covered in snow and ice and yours are clean, but full of potholes and cracks.

HAHA. Great vid.

60 MPH average isn't bad, especially after your surgery.

Those are some of the lighter traffic roads I ride........

You gotta be brave to use some of the roads I have. Actually, it isn't really all that bad riding heavy traffic, we're more maneuverable and if you keep your wits about you, you can ride literally any traffic and often get there faster than by driving.

I added some more rubber strips, but the end of the aerobar does add a bit of a wobble, doesn't it? (Especially with the frame rate jacked to 120FPS. )

Wow that is cool. Dang that car just pops outta no where when your crossing the street on the mup at 3:57. I keep thinking I'm about to fall/crash during the last half of the video like I'm on one of those fun park rides with the stobe lights

Those look about like the roads around here, except that you didn't have any areas with steel plates over the roadway. Are your public works people slacking off?

Nice music, but did you really have to include that section with the shots of your face?? That's 15 seconds of my life I'll never get back

It's good to see that the cars generally gave you room. That 18-wheeler came a little close, though. Same thing happens around here. Fortunately, those guys are actually the ones who know exactly where their vehicles are, so I'm not quite as nervous when they buzz a little, unless they get *really* close.

Great music. Maybe mounting the camera closer to the axis of the headstem would help with the shake? You really have big cojones to ride in rush hour traffic like you do at the end of the video. Makes me appreciate all our bike lanes!!

Actually, the 18 wheeler gave me just a tiny little beepwith his city horn (Not right behind me, but far enough back to let me know) and then eased by me with his eye on me in the mirror. The last bus passing me was closer and faster.

I wanted to add Yakety Sax, Benny-Hill-style, to my unicycling video, but couldn't figure out how to get it from a midi file to the sound track on the video.

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. I think the multitrack recorder can import MIDI and convert to WAV or OGG, either one. Then Windows Movie Maker can handle the WAV file. It can also convert it to a compressed .WMA file.

Wow. I will never gripe about the quality of my roads again. You ride on some rough/rutted roads.

I am wondering if you could build your own steadicam type mount. You need a three ring gimbal between the aerobar and the camera, with a counterweight at the camera below, The weight would need to be heavier then the camera, as the bike moves the gimbal allows the camera to move, the weight then keeps the camera level in all three axis, Yaw, Pitch and Roll. Although you do want to limit the motion, where the bicycle turns, to keep the camera forward facing.

Great minds.... I've been brainstorming on this idea for a bit already today.
