Chest Mounted Camera Test

 

Chest Mount Test from James on Vimeo.

I have some mountain bike and gravel bike video with the camera mounted to the seat post and the handle bars. It’s very shaky. This video mounts the camera on a chest strap. The video is not bad with this system but obviously I can’t use the old Garmin Elite since it is cigar shaped. The video was taken at McAllister Park. I ran into a couple of guys from the Storm club which was convenient since I needed a reference. One thing about this chest mounted camera is trying to get the angle right. It’s hit or miss and can change as you ride so you have to keep track of it.

The bigger question is how do I mount the rear facing camera? The seat tube works ok on the road but I ride a hard tail and I don’t think it will work out on the trail. I like that view better as it shows the suffering on the riders face and we know cycling is about suffering, right? Anyone have any ideas? Oh, and can you guess the trail?
