    Hi Tom,

    Those are two of my favorite. Utah, Moab especially has many much more rocky trails, I shot some chest cam footage of some of those trails but my home made chest mount wobbles so much watching them might make you nauseous! After yeas of downhill racing on very rocky trails I enjoy fun, fast flowy trails as much as the rocky ones.

    Cheers,

    Gene

    Hi Gene:

    Is the sound in the first video your cables rattling? Or is it something else? I have an intermittent loud rattling/cluncking sound that seems like it is coming from the head. The bike shop hasn’t been able to figure out what it is. They recently had my Fox front shocks rebuilt, so they don’t think this is were the noise is coming from. I have a 2011 Trek Fuel EX7.

    Thanks,

    John

      Hi John,

      I am not sure what that sound is, I thought it was the helmet cam straps but it made the same noise when I went to the chest cam. Then I thought it was chain slap but it made the same noise on my downhill bike! I want rid of that noise!

      Your rattling sound is something a good bike mechanic can diagnose much better than me.

      Good luck,

      Gene

      Hi Jann,

      That trail is Hazard county in the La Sal mountains outside of Moab. You can shuttle to it with Coyote (or any of the other shuttle companies) from town and then connect it to UPS, LPS and Porcupine Rim for an epic ride! After July you can start above Hazard at Burro Pass which is the ride often called The Whole Enchilada.

    Gene,

    The trails look like a fun workout, but did you have the GoPro image stabilization turned on? Watching the top video gave me a headache as the trees seem to move, then stop, then move…

      Kevin, there is GoPro image Stabilization?! I’m a bit of a rookie with it, how to I use this feature?! Can’t find it in my manual!

    Gene,
    Are you using the little white horseshoe shaped piece of rubber with your GoPro? After you snap your cam into the mount, jam the rubber into the gap. It will reduce the vibration, and the clicking/rattling noise your cam makes will also go away. Check out YouTube. I did, and found out that the GoPro manual is lacking, in this regard. It makes me wonder what else is not in it, or is poorly written
