As I understood it the white clip is to stop the rattle of the clip in the housing, so you don't get that annoying clicking sound.
As evidenced above - go pro only footage gets stale very quickly and should be used very sparingly if at all in your video uploads
I would say it's not really "goPro only" that's the problem is POV only that's the issue. Mount the camera in different places around the bike and try to get some off the bike footage. off the bike footage is always better but a much bigger pain in the arse.
For some ideas here is a video I made that was pretty much an exercise in using as many different positions as I could think off with the mounts I have.
In terms of the settings I would suggest going for 1080p 60 if you have a computer that can handle editing high res, otherwise go for 720p 60.

yep I tossed the white plug and replaced with some twigs, I choose to use a lot more static cam these days. Really want a DSLR to combine with the go Pro, will also try doing the 720 version and scale the 1080 to crop the view.
Thats the setup I'm using now a GoPro and a Canon 600D. I'm fairly proficient with shooting video on the Canon but shooting bike videos with the Canon when you are trying to ride as well is much harder. You need to spend more time (than with the gorpo) setting up each shoot to make sure you get the focus point right.
Are you looking to crop the 1080p stuff to reduce the fish eye?
