I finally got decent results with the camcorder on the handlebars.
I usually run my 2 inch tires at 50 psi. For this test I ran the front tire at 30 psi and it made a huge improvement in the camera jiggling department with the camera attached to the handlebars.
I ran over a variety of surfaces to test the new setup - smooth roads, substandard roads, trolley tracks, train tracks, and even a little cross-country.
These results are quite acceptable. Previous tests on rough streets were disappointing to put it mildly. I was amazed when I previewed the raw vid that even the cross-country ride filmed well.
You can see the vid HERE.
Be sure to notice the city bus and an SUV both running the red light at 5:09 and the lady on the beach cruiser splitting the double yellow center line at 1:22
