Here you go guys I found this review super helpful in making a decision to build or buy a GoPro Hero Pole grip. Check out this review of the grenade grip. It’s small but yet still severs a purpose.
In the end I made my own for about $12. You can find the parts needs to make this go pro mount at any local hardware store. Others will prefer to order the grip and thats fine I would normally do the same. This DIY mount is so simple and cheap I had to try.

I’m always on the look out for the best or coolest accessory available for my GoPro’s. If you’re also always on the look out for the next best accessory, read on I’ve put together a list of my top 5 GoPro Accessories.
I use a pelican case that fit’s two GoPro cameras and also several accessories. One key feature I look for in accessories is compactness. I like everything to fit into one case. That way I don’t have to carry multiple things and everything is right there when I need it. It also helps when leaving or going to the next place to film that I don’t forget anything. gopole.com has just released their compact tripod.
This thing is bad ass. It’s compact and fit’s in my case along with two hero 4’s and several other accessories. How sweet does this tripod look? Not only does it look really cool, it’s sturdy as heck and functional. It has 6 different locking positions and can also be used as a support base for gopole.com products.
It’s getting to be that time of year where the goprohd camera only comes out for fishing or hiking outdoor activities. During the off season all we can do is google and watch gopro bike videos on YouTube and Vimeo.
Once the first snow hits all of our downhill Mnt bike and Dirt bike trails are not ridable until spring thaw. Usually that is in mid to late april before any of the lower trails are ridable again. Until then we are stuck watching old clips and new ones of friends that have just got around to putting there day into a video for us to watch. Below is a link to one of the sickest gopro bike videos on the net. I just wanted to share this with everyone so you guys out their jonesing to ride can jones even harder..lol
I like watching videos on YoTube but it seems like Vimeo is where some of the most talented videographers upload there videos. A lot has to do with the music you can use and also the underground atmosphere is has about it. I hope you enjoyed the video above I thought it was edited really well.
All you really need to get really great gopro bike video is have a decent mount for your camera. The goprohd hero bike mounting clamp will handle just about anything you can throw at it.

DIY GoPro Mounts
You can use this mount for various different things. I have used this DIY mount for several indoor photo shoots and I have also used this same mount for multiple time lapse shots. If you have never used your goprohd for time lapse, you really should try it.

This mount is cheap, easy, very versatile. You can use this mount just about anywhere and don”t have to really worry about damaging it. I had a really expensive tripod last year that got totaled in the sand dunes. A sand rail came up over the hill we were filming on and ran it over. Not only did it get ran over but it got stuck to the under carrage and was dragged for over 100 yards. Needless to say it was totaled!
