You just gave me a brilliant idea. Look at this.

http://www.yeitechnology.com/product...pace-bluetooth

- 3 axis accelerometer
- 3 axis Rate Gyroscope
- 3 axis compass

The only thing required is a little piece of rubber or velcro to strapp it onto the bar, and there you go, 265Hz filter refresh, meaning 4 measurements of all of the above per second. It might be enough to recreate both the time you spent, and the trajectory the bar was moving.

I will see if I can get one of these free for research purposes
