    this is a great idea. i often ride with a camera – a Jumbo 808 which is a convenient little thing but isn’t designed for cycling – it’s not weatherproof and you need to mount an external battery pack for decent length rides.

    helmet cams have +s and -s though – they allow you to play cameraman by directing the vision towards where you want it to, but particularly for roadies – unfortunately you’re often pointing it down towards the road. while i can see you can flip that model upwards, the problem is still that you’ll notice that your head ‘angle’ varies a lot while riding.

    for that reason, bike-mounted cameras may give a better view (and are legal for races i think, while helmet mounted ones aren’t).

    • Spectacam’s versatile mount will be compatible with most helmets. In addition, our prototype fit on my stem very well! 

  • George

    Great idea. I’m getting 1.

    How many watts will I save with the aero design?

    • jules

      none.. you’ll still be pushing out the same amount of power :)

      • It might just save your life too! 

  • For me, the ideal unit would be a box (mount anywhere) with two small (fibre optic connected?) camera modules for front and rear of the bike, maybe supplemented by a tiny helmet cam for POV.

    • We’ve thought of that and it was in our initial conception stage. But people don’t like anything involving wires these days. That and it just won’t differentiate us from the current competition. You may as well just buy 2 X Gopro Hero 3’s. 

  • Sure beats one of these …..

    • Haha I’ve saw a guy last month that had a similar set up.

    I like it but would not be surprised if a Garmin or another major player either bought out one of their own designs or bought the company from Josiah and Co. A long the lines of the Vector power measuring pedal.

    • justanotheropinion

      should be “brought out one of their own”.

    • I have not been contacted by Garmin yet so we are still pushing on! We have a big meeting with our potential Taiwanese manufacturers next week. Really looking forward to it. Product development is tough, but so much fun.

    Thanks, but I am waiting for Google Glasses. In case of an accident they will show you instantly the road map to the next hospital and the best Groupon while riding there,

  • Mozza

    I meant to say the best Groupon deals …, Scusi.

    Very cool, Norbs will want one!

    Sorry Josiah, Awang is still my favourite Malaysian trackie but I always enjoy you coming out at Revolution and the big events, huge bonus for us punters

    • I can understand why Azizul is your favourite Malaysian trackie. He’s a champ and a great showman. I’m lucky to have him as a teammate and friend. Too bad the Revolution series doesn’t exist anymore. I’m sure we all miss the grand show it used to be. 

  • Wade, Thanks for covering our project! For those who have backed our project on Kickstarter, thanks! For those who did not and are non believers I’d like to set an example as someone who defies odds and goes after my dreams. I’ve done this in my cycling career and will apply everything I have learned in this venture. I believe Spectacam is a very worthy product and can greatly contribute to the cycling community. We’ve made big progress since it’s conception earlier this year. Take my word, Spectacam will become a reality very soon. Anyone who is interested in being involved who has relevant skills or resources, please feel free to contact me at josiah@spectacam.com
