Hi,

I am biking around town. A lot. So my question is, how would these straps perform during "casual biking". Problem is, that you lean forward as you bike, and I wouldn't want the camera to swing in front of me - it should stay on the hip.

I hope the Luma deos the job, as I'm most keen on that... so let's hear? :)

Definitely a bad idea. Your camera would swing around and get banged up like you wouldn't believe. If you want a strap for biking, this would suit you better:

However, they're only available in Japan, I believe. You can purchase through a proxy if you really want it.

I don't see that being any different that a R-strap fitted tightly - what am I missing?

At the moment I manage to bike around with the standard EOS strap, but I'd like something a little more accessible and tighter at the same time...

I haven't tried this on a bicycle, but a dollar store carabiner on the camera strap used to hook to a belt loop, keeps the camera from swinging too much.

I haven't found an English version, but these two youtube links show the Blackrapid RS-Sport in action:

Both videos show you that the strap has a front and rear bumper which locks the camera in place if you are riding.

I haven't tested it in biking myself, but the videos look promising.
