Default Go pro mounts

Wondering how you guys mount your go pros on the front of your sled to shoot backwards at the rider? Can some of you post some pics? And what you made the mount from?

I actually use the GoPro seat post / handlebar mount with it mounted to the front bumper of my Pro. It works and it's out of the way but I am looking at an extension for a little better view. I also have flat mounts on the top rear of the tunnel on each side of the tail light. You can mount the camera for a complete rear view or facing the riders back side.

I can post up some pics to give you an idea.

Yea i've thought of mounting to the bumper but I think if there was a bit of an extenstion it would give a better view - maybe out of the snow a bit more? But there is a fine line to being a great shot and the extension being in the way when going through trees and whatnot. pics would be great.

Cheap way to do it...

Take PVC pipe 1/4".

use a pvc "T" with the bottom cut half off length wise so it will go around the bumper.

Take 2 screw in clamps to secure the T to the bumper.

Take 3-4ft of pvc pipe glued into the T, so the pole will be right infront of you.

Then you can use the basic gopro black screw in mount (dont know what its proper name is) and just plug and glue that in to the top of the pvc pipe.

Camera should be right in your face.

Not professional but itll cost you less than $5.

This website has a lot of GoPro accessories,

I was actually looking at one of these carbon fiber extensions,

Here are some shots from the front bumper, it's a little too far back, which is why I was looking at some kind of extension.

When you get by your sled would you send me a pm with a pic of it? I want to build one but it would be nice to see what it might look like.
Thanks, Dallas

Nice! I'm thinking to pre-mount a T on the front and back, and not gluing the pipe but use a small bolt and wingnut to quickly change the shot.
