The trigger seems like the tricky part if you're trying to nail perfect timing. I also found some bite triggers while searching around. They are about 1/2 way down this page: http://www.paragear.com/templates/parachutes.asp?group=455
I will likely solder one of those or a dirt bike kill switch into the remote. Leaning toward the kill switch because I can use it without having to wear a full face to hide the bite trigger. We'll see how it goes!

In this instance, the transmitter was just in my pocket, and I had activated the self timer with the camera firing a 10 frame burst when time's up. Sorta a copout, sorta not... Most of the time though, I've taped the transmitter to my handlebar near the brake lever. Not crazy about that set up either - it's cool for non-technical riding shots, but I've found hitting the button to be a lot harder when airborne or in the middle of a wallride or the like.
I read somewhere that Danny Way mounted one inside his helmet, and actually activated the trigger by biting it... ?? Clever.

Do you just strap it to your bar, or did you solder up a nice bar-mounted button? Looking to do something similar in the near future.

Thanks - I'm using a radio-remote shutter release. Cheapo Amazon.com version for now, will eventually get a "real" one.

Curious, for your self portraits, are you using the built-in timer, an intervalometer, or some variety of pocket wizard/radio trigger?
