Default compact recommendations?

so im looking for a very compact camera. it will be used for several activities, specifically biking. i need a small size for portability and mounting. it needs a lcd so no contour or hero cams

i have a kodak zi6 that i like but i need pistol grip. i have a jazz 178 but the lens is scratched. i have a insignia 720p camera but its too big and the lens is angled. i just bought a insignia cam from best buy which is perfect in every way except the quality sucks. even my key chain camera is better then it


-something the size of the jazz 178 which is 4x2.5x1
-i would prefer the lens to not be angled from the body
-i would prefer 720p and up but would take 720x480 if it has really good quality
-no zoom, must be fixed focus or that switch for macro/tele

-AA batteries would be interesting, im sure theyd last longer then the np60 typically found in hybrids
-like i said b4, 720p or 1080p would be nice, but would take 720x480 (not 640x480) if it had really good quality

if i cant find anything i may just get a used jazz 178 off ebay. i just wish i could edit the files in virtualdub
