Any recommendations for tripod?

I need something light and portable. To travel around with a bicycle.

budget about 100 - 200 (new/used)

Oh btw its for D70 mounting and for night shoot and landscape.

Thank you. :D

Slik Sprint PRO GM-
dont think this model can take the weight well. But it's a very light tripod.
U might want to check specs to confirm.

Look into sell section. saw a few good tripod for sale.

Depends on what lenses u using. The sprint pro can hold my S3 Pro (definitely bigger than ur D70) with 18-70. But just that u better don tilt it at other angles (besides the landscape, flat angle) as there maybe stability issues. Overall, i think if u wan a light tripod, this is a good choice.

Yup, 725B should be good. I used to have a 724B (predecessor of the 725B) and it's really light and short for carrying around. Comes with a tripod bag too. Can easily handle the D70 with kit lens and a flash. :)

But if you want something that will support a big lens and light, go for CF tripods. But that will fall outside your budget. The 724B that I had was a little unstable with the D70 and a 70-200 Sigma.
