No. Because that would produce 2h of footage a day I'd never look at. It would be like recording my office job. In 25 years of riding bicycles in traffic, I've never been in a situation where I thought "damn, I wish I had that on video as evidence". Besides, it wouldn't be admissible in court where I live. Besides, I don't wear a helmet I could mount it on.
I have a Gopro on my helmet all the time. I generally just delete the boring rides or create montages on the interesting shots. In the odd case a car does hit me I have evidence. I try not to be in a situation in which I'm in danger of getting hit even if I have the right of way. It's not worth the time to get hit by a car just to prove I'm in the right.
>>906674 nah, my rides are amaxing. but i'd rather just live in the moment and enjoy the ride at the time, rather than sitting in front of a monitor watching a previous ride.
the only reason i'd use a camera is for black box reasons. and i mostly ride at night when the roads are empty so i rarely experience any problems with motorists. maybe when i get a new lighter helmet that sits firmly on my head and doesn't woble around under the weight of a camera i might start using it again. but it's just a hassle to keep charging it and carrying the extra grams. plus if a car kills me then knowing who did that after i'm dead is of no use to me because i'll be dead.
>>906686 >>906696 Probably you ride in empty suburbs or something, where I live cars cutting you off and pulling out at random and taxis stopping with doors flying open in the middle of the street is something you see on every block. Traffic laws are more of a suggestion than a rule. If you don't want to be "in danger of getting hit" the only option is not to ride. But I can definitely see the appeal of cameras because when the inevitable happens, because a cager did something technically illegal that he does all the time and normally gets away with, it's nice to have that solid evidence in the event that the crash wasn't caught on a random security camera (which is also fairly likely here).
>>907104 >Why do you keep re-posting this boring video? Up until recently, it was the only non-audio webm I had of my riding footage. Most webms I make come out like ass for some reason - changing the bitrate does nothing. Case in point attached.
>What is so special about this corner? Went fast.
>>907106 >Recording all of your rides Western Digital shareholder, pls go
>>907214 i had a helmet mount and it squeaks whenever there's forward to backward motion. It's just due to a really flimsy mount and especially on a road helmet where there's not enough surface area for the sticky pad.
>>907484 Thats part of the problem as well. I insert a thin strip of rubber inside the housing of my Gopro and the clicking sound is gone. Also the rubber plug thing doesn't work with some mounts like the chest mount.
>>906787 I live in a small town so you're right. It honestly takes balls of steel to cycle regularly in a larger city or just an area with terrible drivers and I have a lot of respect for people who do it. Even here there was a hit and run and the guy's bike was broken in half during the collision.
