I agree with the sentiment. Too many people take hard crashes because they are getting bad advice on how to learn safely.

I've been experimenting with a camera mount very similar to this. If you haven't tested it yet, the problem you'll find with that design is the camera will twist because there is nothing to...

I don't recommend a floaty by itself. 1) some mounts weigh enough to sink the camera with a floaty. If the mount breaks off the board and is still attached to the camera, your camera could sink. 2)...

At 180 I would never go down to a 134. At 180-185 I've ridden 135s and can do it in a pinch, but it sucks. If anything I'm more a fan of moving up a size than down. For you and what it sounds like...
