Also posted this in the biking-camping section. It's a handlebar camera mount.I'd been looking for one of these for at least several months to video Gidget when we go bikejoring (i.e. she pulls me on a mountain bike). Eureka! Found this on amazon.com and used it for the first time this past weekend. Excellent results.

Am very pleased, it is a solid piece of equipment and has several adjustment points to position the camera as you want it. I'm actually surprised it didn't cost more. Shipping was pretty fast from a place in Pennsylvania (via Amazon).

As soon as I can figure out how to edit my videos down sufficiently to post on You Tube, I will post those links here.

So far am having no luck with the software on my laptop. Appears the Canon Zoombrowser EX 4.6 software that I have is corrupted. I shot the videos with a Canon Powershot SD 700 IS.
Am so eager for you all to see these videos but am so aggravated at the software I'm about to heave the laptop out a window! Can't do that because the videos are on it. :)

I believe the mount would work well with a camcorder, too.

Again, I highly recommend this camera mount.

$24.75

hi hiker chick. funny that you posted this the day after i tried strapping my camera to my handlebar with one of those flexible mini-tripods (didn't work so well). anyway, here's a little amateurish video i made of our dog riding in style yesterday in lovely golden gate park. a little shaky but not quite cloverfield.

cheers!

Clover looks very content and entirely comfortable in his perch on the bike. That is a terrific video! :D

I'll fuss around with my videos some more tonight but I'm not hopeful. And Canon's web page is not at all helpful about providing fixes to their crummy Zoombrowser.

:neutral:

Diggler Dog Scooters are cool ! Go to www.diggler.com :)
Are you getting many scooter rides in with the pup(s) this winter?

Gidget and I have run the Mall nearly every Saturday and Sunday -- best winter yet.

And You Tube is presently "processing" one of the videos so with any luck...

:)

The video quality was great until uploaded to You Tube. I don't know what's up with that but here it is. The audio certainly captures Gidget's impatient yap:

Am going to try to upload some others. This is the only one that's worked so far.

:)

HC, great job! It's awesome to not only see but also hear Gidgets yap!!! She is such a sweetie. Thanks for posting and keep them coming.

Thanks! Gidget looks cute as usual!

Here's why I could never harness him to a scooter

From this mornings run . . . . it was 10 degrees F.

First time trying the video capture function using my new Sony "point-n-shoot" :cool:

Love the Gidget pics and videos as always! The yapping is hilarious too, you can tell she SO wants to get going! Actually kinda surprised she doesn't yap when running though :D

Obi looks like he's havin way too much fun! My Aussie is similar but she wants to play with the frisbee less and run after it when I throw it more :D You might want to try one of the Kong frisbees - they're a bit heavier so they fly better and they last a hella long time.

Bikejoring again today. The National Arboretum. Taking a break in these pics at the columns (part of the U.S. Capitol from 1826-1950s). Very windy today.

As you can see, Gidget's impatient to get moving again. :)

Bikejoring has transformed winter for me. Summer is now my least favorite season (because of the east coast humidity).

Hiker Chick -
Tell me more about the bar on the front of your bike that the lead attaches to. We are just getting into bike/scooter and find the lead sometimes gets tangled in front wheel.
Thanks.

My solution to that problem was to buy an "aerobar" from REI. They are perfect for this. Not only does it keep the gangline off the front tire but it provides some leverage when your pup veers off to the side too much.

To be clear, I still fasten the gangline to the neck of the bike. I simply run it through the aerobar.

I don't know of anyone else in bikejoring or dogscootering using the aerobar but it works great for me. Others seem to fashion homemade solutions. Don't know of alternatives for sale.

I use the $99 Aerobar at the top here simply because that was the only one they had in the store at the time I was shopping. The one below it is cheaper and lighter and I don't know why that is. Obviously I'd go cheaper and lighter given the option.

Thanks Hiker Chick but Dexter gets enough premium stuff that I don't want to spend any more money on doogie beauty products as well!

He already gets more spent on him for haircuts than I do (but I don't have as much hair as I used to :rolleyes:) so I think we will stick to his "Woodsy Woof" dog shampoo for now!

If you have pets, I am sure that you consider them as part of your family. One thing that is about them is that they are kids too and should be given that kind and tender treatment juts like others. your pet might be itchy, stinky and sometimes even uncomfortable. How do you ensure that it goes back to its original state?
