Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What kind of camera? I use duct/gorilla tape with my helmet cam, isn't pretty, but works perfectly for attaching it to my skid lid, my skis (cool shots when ski mounted). I have a real mount for the bars, but without awesome image stabilization it ends up putting out video that will make you puke.

Thanks for the link 1nterceptor. I saw that when I google camera mounts. haha

ianjk, its a canon sx210. I was actually looking for something like a rear mount, so you could see the bike and legs in action.
do they even make those?

What camera are you using? Lighter the camera the safer your mount is.

IF you invest in a mino flip hd. And use the 1/4 threading on the mount, You can use millions of tripod quick release's

Also, The camera mount has to be pretty short, Because the camera mount only is mounted on one axis and since that axis is usally a circle, The footage seems to flex alot.

So, mounts too look for. Short, Wide mounts. Mounts that offer lots of widths for tension and support, Mounts that are simple to fix and replace.

also, Try not to set the cam near the wheel, If your using handlebar mounts, You really want the shortest possible mount, And invest on some nice viral mounts. With a pretty high duro rating that way the footage wont flex as much.

You guys are into video? Just saw this:

http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...mcorderSection

I kinda want a micro four-thirds camera for doing video stuff, now they're making dedicated video cameras with that format. Pretty cool stuff.

What are you using, 5D? I'm piecing together a lens collection for my D3100 at the moment, when I get a 50mm 1.8 I can start to shoot some real stuff for Blicks. It's a cheap body but takes great images.
