Hey jojothedog, or alteast his owner
Thanks for sharing your story, it's always good to hear of people getting on with their life and moving onwards and upwards.
I'm not sure I'd put myself in the survivors category yet as things are still very much up in the air but I guess I'm still alive for now so that counts for alot
I haven't been riding much lately, other than commuting to work which doesn't yield very exciting footage. I did get out for a quick squirt last weekend though so captured a bit of footage. I returned to one of the trails I haven't ridden in a year since before I got sick. Some may recognise it from one of the first videos I posted. The middle section I'd never ridden before so slowed a few times to work out which way the trail actually went! No fancy editing or camera angles in this one, my time was limited so it's just some onboard footage while out zipping around. I have a bit of a short attention span so often get bored watching fixed camera angle stuff but knoxie and a few others will probably like it.
I have some more footage from that ride which I'll try and edit later but that'll be it for new footage for a while. I pulled my gopro to pieces last night in an attempt to finally replace that badly scratched lens. After fitting the replacement I realised I'd accidently order a 25mm lens - which is hugely zoomed in compared to the stock 1.7mm one (even with it massively out of focus I could see it was no good) It would be useless for ebike use so I'll order another replacement but it wont arrive for a few weeks so until then I hope I dont crash or I'll be pissed to miss the stack
I'm going to go with a 3.6mm which has the effect of being slightly more zoomed in than the standard one but has none of the fish eye that the standard one has. Fingers crossed the swap is sucessful otherwise I'll have a dead gopro on my hand and have no option but to buy a hero 2
Nah even when I do buy a new one I still want to keep this one for second angles or rear mounted or something.
Usual deal, the vid is still uploading for the next ~30 mins so won't be ready until you see the thumbnail
