Saturday Morning Die Hards ride to Bauvelt 2013 Jan 5 from David Neff on Vimeo.
My father introduced me to cycling, not just by taking off my training wheels, but by showing me his trophy and a newspaper clipping of his thanksgiving prize turkey won at a Philadelphia Criterium back in the early 50’s. I did my first century ride with my dad when I was 13 but it wasn’t until my late 30’s that I would make them a regular weekend Saturday ride. The last time I got dad on a bike was three years ago, and unless modern medicine gets a whole lot more scifi, it’s unlikely that we’ll have his bike out for another century. About every Sunday, I speak with my parents and when I tell dad about my ride, I always wish I could share a bit more of it. Round one, seems batteries only last for the first 35 or so miles, it’s a start. This week, tested my first iteration of a handlebar mount fabbed at home on a 3d printer. If you don’t mind staring at backsides in spandex, not so bad. Helmet mount is a little better but not quite as comfortable. Maybe next time. Also in the works, maybe shooting a seat mount. Ride behind me? Say cheese!
- Camera: Swann Freestyle on Full auto (no other choice)
- Resolution: 8MP
- Capture rate: 3sec

- Handlebar mount…
|This is the first prototype for the mount, with 65 miles on it, I have a few mods in mind and will print out another maybe tomorrow. The part I fabricated is the silver clamp on the bars, it integrates with the proprietary mount that comes with the Swann Freestyle camera system.|
