Winter Cycling Video

Some of my friends in the tropics never got these sort of view. So adding cycling element to it makes it just right

Nice. What band is the music in the background and what kind of bike were you riding?

Wow, looks and sounds like the real thing, except for the music (maybe I should try headphones) ... Love the little "wiper fingers" that periodically appear. Gets a little crusty near the end, just like with my glasses!

Hey, that was fun to watch! I really like the perspective of the camera - up front, but still able to see the rider's hands/bars sometimes. Very coooool. Is the camera mounted on the top tube?

<edit> After looking @ your picture, I can tell the camera is mounted on the top tube. Great perspective! Does it ever get in the way?????

My knees misses the mount by a bit. My arms do not get in the way... I think this happy resolution has more to do with luck than actual research Although I need to remember not to dismount onto the top tube whenever it is installed.

Here's another video that I posted in General Forums (16MB). I personally like this better, just because of the greater visuals.
