Re: What is better?

@fededl - If you ultimately want a photo, then I would make sure it's set to one of the photo modes, which would eliminate the higher frame rate video option for me. If you want to get a shot of the bike as it passes, I like the Burst mode. That will require you (or a friend) to trigger the shot though. Othewise, I would do a time lapse photo and then pick out the best image.
