NEW Youtube Channel about Taiwan Cycling

Hi all, I’ve created a new YT channel which is focusing on Taiwan in the whole, such as Taiwanese brands, clubs, routes, manufacturing, cafes and bike shops. Feel free to suggest topics, all appreciated. I work for the Taiwan KOM so there’ll be plenty on that too. Thanks!

Nice Lee! Looking forward to new videos.

I was just about to say there’s not many English speaking cycling Youtubers in Taiwan. I thinking about starting one on my own, but I like to stay low key :smiley: and I know it does take some time getting used to riding and talking to your camera.

I raced against Lee once. I say raced, we lined up on the same start line. I was dropped in the first k. #nekminnit

Best 5 seconds of your cycling career? #imiright

The highlight of my career would have been telling the broom wagon to fuck off in the Tour of East Taiwan. Finished ten minutes outside the cut off but at least I tried godammit, at least I tried. :mountain_biking_man:

Very cool…looking forward to seeing more videos. You got a subscriber in me since I own the Kplus Nova :sweat_smile:

Thanks for that ranlee, much appreciated! Riding with the camera was ok (bike path, thank you), the real hassle was working out what equipment I needed and sound also, took me many, many… many weeks, still not perfect but I’ll learn, maybe :wink:

March 6th, Yangmingshan Challenge, I’ll be in the Over 40s group, see you there? :wink:

I’d be over 55s by now. :sweat_smile: shin splints brought my “career” to a shuddering halt.

I’m thinking one of those Bianchi e-road bikes could be an option for me. A bit of a push up the bergs would spare me further leg injuries.

If you’re working with a GoPro, I’ve seen some vloggers get something to attach to their handlebars or a wrist mount.

If you don’t mind me asking, what equipment are you using?

Saw some cyclists in 小琉球 would be great to make a video of such exotic and beautiful place!

Hey Ranlee, I’ve watched this guy’s vids quite a bit. This might help.

If that’s your first video, I’m in. Keep 'em coming.

I use a Canon M50 for the indoor shot at the beginning, then GoPro 7 with the extension stick when riding (with mic attached), and also with the mouth mount (designed for snorkeling) when riding downhill. I feel it give s a better shot than on the bars where it just delivers one view point. In the Kplus store I used my iPhone XR and the Osmo phone gimble to keep it smooth. Took me ages really to find what worked for me. Some cycling vloggers use a DSLR when out riding but for me that’s too cumbersome even if the image quality is clearer. GoPro looks ok to me.

Cheers!

The new Insta360 looks really good. It’s a modular system so you can switch lens.

Great vid, look forward to more!

Where was the video shot from 2:53 to 3:21? I’ve cycled pretty much all the riverside paths in and around Taipei, and I can’t recognize this place.

My guess is it’s gotta be one of the roads just north of the coastal road in Sanzhi/Shimen/Danshui area.

I was wondering that too: maybe the path that winds between Baishawan and Sanzhi. But I’ve only ridden that once. Found it rather dull and slow. Plus sheltered from any kind of breeze, so stinking hot that day.
