I've not had first hand experience of using one yet (very jealous of you) but I'm always impressed by the helmet mounted videos, mounting it in this way appears to give the best rider POV whilst also negating camera shake etc. Enjoy!

I got myself the 3 Silver a few weeks ago. I bought mine mainly for snowboarding, so haven't bought any specific bike mounts yet.
If you haven't got the wireless remote option with yours, then check out the apps available (both for iphone and android).
I have the iphone app, and it's amazing!

I plan to buy both the chest and bar mount, but funds are tight right now.
I may give mine a go on my bike tomorrow, so will report back :wink:

Thanks for the replys so far guys :D think i will go for a bar and helmet mount to start of with and see how i get on :? Makster, my son is going snow boarding in feb so will probably take it with him to try out (he paid for it :D ) thinking of trying to mount it in a slightly different position on the helmet... not right on top but lower down towards the right side, more of a "what i see view" ... but we will see how that one pans out :wink:
any how keep the surgestions coming

Mick :D

This extra long custom pole type mount is awesome, such great angles of the rider/bike/scenery

I have lots of mounts for mine and for me I think the best position to get a feel for the ride is on the seatpost foward facing, if i wear my baggy shorts they get a bit flappy at low speed, i try and avoid that if I can :lol: I have a chest mount but I personally dont get on with it, anyway a link to one of my vids below ff to past 2min to enjoy it better , :)
