So I posted awhile ago on action cameras with shoddy video, and I got the stabilization software which helped, and a helmet mount which gave some great footage....only problem was I crashed...
This looks cool! I just wonder if it can be charged while on? Especially doing longer ride days 8+ hour, past the advertised battery life, that would be a handy capability.

So what software have you been using to stabilize the video? The 360 cameras sound cool, but depending on where I mount, it'll probably devolve into the same question on how to stabilize...
vapidoscar, tires make a MASSIVE difference. For instance, I did the Love Valley Roubaix (49mi mostly gravel back country NC mountain/logging road) race two years in a row. First year, I did...

Overall, not that difficult. Just really rocky and rooty, there's a good flow to the trail it's just a bit...

Welcome Matt! Before you buy...TEST RIDE like crazy. You can do all the homework on every little itty bitty detail that you want, and know the performance difference of ceramic versus steel ball...

I have a Fenix 5. What I like: I agree with an earlier comment that the Fenix line is bullet proof. I've fallen on it, dropped it, whacked it on stuff in the shop...
Alright, definitely late to the game here: Foundry is out of business. But I've got a Firetower frame I bought as they were closing and built out myself. Yes, it's a little dated and I'd love to be able to get some wider tires on it, it would certainly make things a bit easier on…
