I use 2 Go Pro recorders. One is on my hb's to record rides. The second I carry in my jersey pocket. It is attached to a small 6 inch tripod that I use as a handle. I got the idea from the Go Pro Grenade stick $40 but a $5 cheapo tripod works just fine as a handle.
I will say when I ride on mtn roads, I encounter some crotch rockets and wannabe race car drivers. I hear them gunning engines as they approach. When I raise the recorder in the air, they seem to settle down as they pass
...The tripod gives it a little extra height on recording angles and it's a little more noticeable to others. I do hold it with my right hand though, easing the temptation of any passer by from snatching it from my hand.
at 20 second in you can see that I pan around with the tripod recorder.
fast fwd to 3:50 in, you can see the difference on the ride, HB vs tripod recorders (if you watch the music video)
