Hi all,

I have a show coming up, shooting bikes and it's all vehicle mount stuff.

Production is considering one of these vehicles (under utility vehicles & carts section):

Which one is the best and how do I make this work with the key grip?
First time doing it so any advice would be helpful.

Thanks,
Jerry

IMO (and I've done a TON of hard mount stuff) there are only two options, Griptrix and Carpenter Camera Cars. Griptrix are Electric cheese plates and it's a great setup for the under 30mph shoots. For over 30mph or Gas powered stuff just call Jack Carpenter bite the bullet and hire either his 6 wheel ATV or his Go-Mobile (that will do 90mph and 0-60 in 5 seconds!)

Hi Eric,

In your experience which of the GripTrix would be best for following and leading bikes?
We probably wont go more than 20 or 25 mph...

Thanks,
Jerry
