Warm Up, Levis Mounds, Wisconsin

Photo: AJ Heil.
This trail is a part of the Levis Mounds trail system. 

Warm Up and Select Cut flow naturally into one another, and because of that I'll focus on the differences between the two. (Read the Select Cut review first.)

Warm Up has a little more elevation gain and loss along it's length than does Select Cut.  There are several rises and dips that, coupled with the great swoop of the turns, lead to a really fun ride.  If possible, Warm Up feels like it has even more swoop and flow than Select Cut.

In reality, trying to differentiate between the two trails is tough because they naturally flow into each other and really ride as one trail.  If you head out to Levis and hit them up, you'll see what I mean!

Yo Greg, great videos. What camera are you using and how are you mounting it? It looks like a chest mount which I've been meaning to try but I'm not really sure what I need to do it.

Hey man, I'm using a Go Pro Hero (not the HD, unfortunately). I've been experimenting with a variety of mounting options, but by far my favorite is the chest mount. It tends to give a lot more perspective of the trail by being able to see the bike and my hands/arms, and its also cool to see what I or someone else is doing as they ride (body language, shifting, braking, etc).

My chest mount set up was an actual accessory all by itself that straps on kind of like a backpack over the shoulders and buckles in front. The straps hold in place a plate with a bolt attachment that the camera goes on.

I don't have my stills camera with me at the moment, but I'll try to post a picture sometime.
