    This is a awesome idea! When spring comes, I am making one of these for my mountain bike and videoing all my fave trails in HD!

    Yeah, I made 1 out of black PVC pipe. My video camera was too heavy, and all I got was bobbling and shaking :(

    Cool tutorial....thanks for sharing. I noticed you put the wingnut upside down but we all get the point.

    Great job of an Instructable video. Clear and to the point. However, I would caution when screwing the 1/4-20 bolt into the tripod socket on the bottom of the camera. If the bolt goes in too far, it can damage the mechanics or electronics of any camera - a very expensive mistake to make.....
