I’ve been thinking about getting a helmet camera to record my rides.
The main reason is as a safety aid, so if you guys want, you can review things I need to improve.
Prefer with sound, so I can get some critique on my shifting and shift points.
Are there any makes or models that you’ve had good luck with?June 12, 2009 at 10:32 pm #19660megaspazParticipant
either the vholder by twenty twenty or the hero gopro. both of those are self contained units so you don’t have to run wires and stuff.June 12, 2009 at 10:50 pm #19662EliasParticipant

I did some browsing a little while back, and I found a company called Hoyt Technologies. Although it’s pretty expensive, they have some cameras that actually look like they mount in an acceptable way. Some of the other options would increase wind resistance so much that I wouldn’t even use it. One thing about the Hoyt company is that they sell separate cameras and recorders, so you would need both.
Also, I’ve watched a fair number of videos of a guy who does touring whose website is atlasrider.com (and his youtube account is Atlas Rider). He has one video where he shows his setup, and he basically just puts a camera inside his visor. I wouldn’t be comfortable riding like that, but he is and you might be also.June 13, 2009 at 10:21 am #19690SafetyFirstParticipant
PS, am I the only one who doesn’t use a dark windscreen on their helmet? I still say the two-way eye contact with cagers is VITAL.June 13, 2009 at 6:28 pm #19694EliasParticipant
Clever, yes, but I can’t actually believe this kid rides like that. Does he not notice that when he looks to the left or right with his eyes that “OH! all the sudden I can only see what I am looking at with one eye…and all my depth perception is lost! Hmmm, I wonder why?!?!” I won’t be surprised when I see a vlog of this guy hitting a trash can on his bike lol
