Mounting on a helmet is smoother, but this mount is very convenient
on 24 October 2011
The mount is strong and will keep the camera mounted stably if tightened by a screwdriver rather than the thumbscrews.
When using the mount on tarmac roads and paths the video is great and very smooth, however when on rough and bumpy terrain the video will be very shaky as there is no dampening of shock. Video is still watchable over some rougher cycle paths (if the mount is attached tightly) but not when off road.
For off road work, a helmet mount is much much better as my head doesn't shake as much as my handlebars!
I would recommend this for recording trips on the road or on most cycle routes as I find mounting the camera on a helmet quite tiring and annoying after a while. The handlebar mount is not noticeable so I use it much more often.
Attaches pretty much anywhere on my bike (Specialized Tricross).
