Fat (Video) Tuesday

Michael shot this in the upper midwest with a GoPro Hero, from various positions on his 9:Zero:7. Nicely edited and who doesn’t love a video with a dog in it!

Michael, aka MauricioB, aka Uncle Bicycle, aka somethingtodowithbumble is a Triple D veteran, avid commuter, photographer and the very first kid on his block with a 9:zero:7, named Ruby!

    Love the point of views and edit! What did you use for the mounts in the different places you had the camera? Which camera model? I guess I know what’s on my birthday list! Thanks for sharing!

    Hey, cheers Steve! This was shot with a GoPro Hero HD, mounted on the handlebar, fork and my custom mount. You can see more photos and a bit of raw footage over on my Flickr stream.

    Great vid! I like the changing camera positions and locations throughout the ride

    IS that mount screwed into the rack braze-ons? Pretty interesting rig there. Been himmmin and haw win on getting a go pro- I used a different camera (contour HD) for shooting at Levis Mound, but the quality doesn’t seem as good-distorts at the wide angle.

      Yes. I just drilled a hole in the center of the copper cap (you could also use a PVC cap) and ran the M5 bolt through the cap and spacer and into the rack braze-on. The Hero’s handlebar mount is kinda fussy to get on and off and adjust, so it’s much handier to bring along a y-wrench and move the mount from place to place.

    Did you use the same mount on the front fork?

      Yes, the same mount worked great on the Pugsley fork that I’m using on this bike.

      Too bad ol’ gorilla fingers (me) managed to cross-thread one of the rack braze-ons ­čÖü
