Nice video. Thanks for sharing. Still bummed that the little guy and I were too sick/contagious to make it. At least I got to live the moment YouTube style!

Tell me about your mounting setup for the camera here. What camera/mount did you use?

GoPro Hero 2 (older model) with the roll bar mount (http://gopro.com/camera-mounts/roll-bar-mount) attached to the head tube of the Bullitt (directly in front of the box). This video also uses YouTube's stabilization feature which seems to work decently - here is the original un-stabilized version: http://youtu.be/zuutTWSnI-4

Cool--I've been trying to figure out the best way to mount a camera. I think it'd be fun to have it facing back at the rider and passenger too.

Before I had the mount I tried a few different setups when making this video (another Kidical Mass ride): http://youtu.be/QVctDyJI6LA

For the views facing backwards (of rider and passenger) the camera was just in the box sort of attached to my bag. Definitely makes for a fun video that way. I'll have to give it another try now that I have the mount.

I've been considering mounting a bar in front of the box to mount lights and a camera on. I don't want it to interfere with the kids leaning against the front of the box, so it should be off the front a bit. Thoughts?

Connect it somehow to the front wheel/fender so that the light beam changes directions as you move the front wheel to steer!

We've got that now with the light on the fork. In fact, I now have 2 magicshines (thanks to skreaminquadz), so we've got double headlights. :-) But it actually may be better to have one light turn and one light stay straight. And the bar would still be good for the camera...

You could probably mount it off the side of the box near the front if you mount it to the box itself. Then you don't have to worry about a passenger leaning on it or blocking the camera.
