I'm doing a little project and would like to capture a soundwalk, or I should say, a "soundride". I do about 15 miles every morning on the old bike through a really nice mix of loud urban, suburbs and even a little bit forest, or as close to forest as I'm going to get in a NYC borough.
I'm trying to eliminate myself from the audio picture as much as possible, trying to get the vibe as if the bike is driving itself. I'm thinking that mounting something to the front-center of the handlebars might be the best way to go. All I've really got right now is my Gorillapod. I did a test run with my D50 mounted to the stem with the pod and the positioning seemed just about perfect, perhaps a bit too much bike noise and headwind, but decent. Problem was that there was just way too much handling noise to get anything usable out of it.
Got any ideas for mounting this thing as shock-free as possible? It's a street ride, but even the slightest bump was too much for the occasion.
