My second steep climb video with the GoPro-head tube mount this time
This time I mounted the GoPro HD Hero 960 on the head tube of my Sirrus with a Pedco UltraClamp 2.5
. The regular size UltraClamp only fits objects up to 1.5" in diameter and didn't fit on the head tube, so I bought the 2.5.
Mounting the camera on the head tube eliminates most of the shakiness that you see in my older videos where the camera was mounted on the handlebars. Of course that shakiness is most evident on steep climbs, so on this ride it would have been ridiculous. There were lots of grades in the mid to high teens, and some in the low twenties. Max grade was 23%.
This is Screech Owl Creek Road in eastern El Dorado Hills, CA.
Top of climb. Notice how hazy it is.
Here's a couple pics of the camera on the mount.
