Chest camera is shaky! I've heard from a few people that they wipe out their ones on the top ducking for things. I've got mine on the side n never had a drama

Ten minutes on your first ride and you won't notice it

Thanks for the advice guys just one thing to say " DOH!" Back to the shop for another sticky pad...
Question does any one add extra security to there cameras so they don't fall off? Like string or tape?

i run my gopro on top..... i havent had it come off, it does hit stuff but you get a good pic from visor view. i have also put a flat mount on my swing arm and face the go pro backward........ is a good shot when riding single trail with persons behind you. the gopro is also safe because your boot is in the way. also the handle bar mount works well...................its a good job i claim all my go pro stuff on tax for "work purposes". the best thing about the gopro is the versatility in mounting, you can never have enough different views.

Go the top mount but just watch out for lantana and low branches that want to snap your neck backwards when you get caught up on them! drunken_smilie

I use a cable tie to hook mine back onto the visor.
