"19. No One Looks Good In Lycra…Especially Mountain Bikers – Bring a change of clothes…lycra is not “going out” wear.

  This is acutally something I've been seriously thinking alot about over the last couple of years.  I'd like to design a whole line of biking apparel that is presentable when riding and when not riding.  The whole Lance Armstrong look needs to be replaced with a more "hetero," casual style look where you can ride your bike somewhere and actually walk amongst the general population without looking like Richard Simmons.

Thanks Megster.  The wheels weren't turning because I was riding one of those new fangled hover bikes, they're kinda speedy.

Thanks!   The video was made on a gopro hd with a chesty mount and a seatpost/ handle bar mount.  The camera was on the default setting of 720p 30fps which the manual says is the best for biking.  It has other settings of 1080p 30fps and 720p 60fps but I have not tried those yet.

  I liked your video so much I went out and bought one for myself.....

Had a great time and the trails were perfect.

Here is a little vid of the ride.  It is my first vid with the gopro so there was a bunch of things I messed up and footage that I did not get right or not at all.  But I think the vid is alright for a first try.

  Wow, this is one of the best videos I've seen of one of our local trails at 720p.  Love the perspective.  This is an awesome video!

OK, just discovered the video editor on YouTube, spliced a few of the better clips together.  

  This is awesome.  Thanks for posting.
