Post $20 Action Camera with helmet mount
Yep you read the title correctly
just bought one of these a couple of weeks ago, hasn't arrived yet but thats what you get when you buy from china...

it comes with some mounts that you can easily throw onto a bike, car or helmet

the youtube preview shows a decent video, not HD but good enough to show some decent trails.

i figured if i can get 20 weekends and 50 odd videos out of it before i either loose it, it breaks, it catches on fire or someone steals it, it would've been money well spent.

The website has other sports cameras that have display screens and are water proof but as for quality i havent heard anything.
will keep you posted on what its like and will also throw a video up ASAP

I think Hori and Sunny have run these. Not bad for the $$$

get the mount correct and the vids are ok.

By the way you can pick them up for $2 sometimes off ebay and in lots of ten.

One of the big issues is putting a reasonable card in it. the ones off ebay are SHIT and I think you need a class 4 for this one.

I need class 6 for the go pro and 10 for the Vio HD

They aren't a bad little camera, mine cost $10 each from china with free postage. The memory cards can actually cost more than the cam. Had them mounted on the back of the helmet with silicone. Not waterproof so only use it in the dry. Video was good for the price but battery life is horrible. I carry a few spares in the backpack and swap them when it dies. As with any cam without a screen it takes a bit to get the right angle but pretty good once setup. Its not a wide angle lense so the angle is important. If you want to get rid of the timestamp let me know and i'll find the link
