a gopro wide has just landed on my desk and i'm about to order a chest mount.

in the mean time what other areas are good for mounting these?

examples are expected!! :wink:

    Handlebar mount can work, get it as close to the steerer as possible to reduce the yaw and you can get some really interesting footage. Not exactly smooth but it's a good alternative POV.

    This was shot with a very crude stem mount, actually just used the box that the gopro came in, taped to the stem :lol: Worked OK though. Not good enough for fort william though, the camera nearly came off after about 30 seconds!

    I fancy getting one of those tube mounts so it's easy to fit in different places round the frame though

    I think the chest mount is best, as you do get the sense of riding it... On handle bars etc, you do get a lot of vibration.
