Solid mount. Good value.
on 18 January 2013
Purchased this with the GoPro tripod mount to put a GoPro camera on my cycle handlebars.
I would have purchased the dedicated GoPro handlebar mount, but reviews suggest you can't rely on it not to break and drop your camera on the tarmac.
For the price, this mounts is feels solid and reliable. I have hit some pretty big pot holes cycling in London, and never a sign it would give way.
Setting up the GoPro vertically above this mount results in quite a high 'stack' of mount + adapter + camera. After some experimentation, I found it best to position the mount horizontally (screw facing horzontally forwards) then rotate the GoPro 90 degrees on the tripod mount so it is suspended below it. This looks more compact and less precarious - also puts the camera in front of the brake/gear cables giving a clear view forwards. Search You Tube for "GoPro Hero 3 Silver Edition - Low Light - Cycling - London" and you can see the results.
