I was having some serious vibration issues with flex mounts, this one has maybe the odd bounce on your larger road bumps but in general its done the job.

I have it mounted so the camera is under the handle bar, it actually looks quite neat.

I feel much safer on the road now knowing I have video of all the idiot drivers that try to kill me :-)ii

I was looking for a sturdy mount to use on my Triumph motorbike and this mount fitted to the handlebars with no issues and so far, even at "motorway speed" this mount has been great, no movement of the camera once it's fitted for me anyway.

The only issue I find is that it's a little tough to get the camera off the mount once it's on and this can then change the position of the camera but once fitted, I have found it very easy to just set the correct position by eye and the Contour, having such a wide field of view make it hard not to get it right and it can even see my speedo at the same time.

Great bit of kit.

Having seen footage taken on helmet mounted cameras, I decided that a more static mount would be better. The clamp fits tightly on the handlebar and it has not slipped even with some severe bumps. However, I ride a road bike and the severe bumps are translated directly into the camera causing bad picture blurring. I guess this is to be expected. In this respect, I think the mount would be better suited to a mountain bike where the suspension and fatter tyres would smooth the bumps out a bit. Having said that, on a smooth road, the pictures are good. Having ridden the Ride100London, the bumps actually made the footage look more spectacular on the fast downhill sections.
The ball joint has an 'O' ring to secure it in position. I found it a bit slack so added a finger from a latex glove to give it bit more grip.

I originally purchased the contour bar strap, which is a rubbery strap that to be honest is completely useless. It slips down the handlebars meaning your camera is pointing up in the sky or down at the floor.

So, I then purchased this particular mount, hoping it would be more robust. Which to be fair it is. It was tricky to find room on my handlebars but after a bit of messing around I got the mount on.

The camera can be rotated left and right, up and down, and also down each side. Every now and again a big bump will take out the original setting which means that you have to reposition the camera. But it's miles better than the rubber strap.

It would have got 5 stars, if there was a setting to lock the camera mount so that it can't rotate when you go over bumps

In the past I've used the vented helmet mount - but even thought the Contour is light, I can still feel the extra weight. This solves the problem.

Put the camera in an excellent position to flick the switch to turn recording on.

I think the only downsides are that it's very difficult to lock the ball mount - they should come up with an easy way to firmly fix the camera mount once you've got it horizontal. Ride over a few potholes, and you find the camera tilts down!

Other than that - this is a really study mount - and there's no way the camera can come off accidentally.

This is big and ugly. And to make matters worse, the thumb nut/ball joint does not hold the camera still - I found myself continually re-aligning the camera as I went along. And then the thumb nut cracked making the mount useless. I contacted Contour, asking them where I could purchase a replacement nut and they ignored me, I would suggest that anybody considering a handle bar mount for a Contour Roam should avoid this...

I bought this product after a road traffic accident so I would have video evidence if I was ever involved in an accident again. The third road bike ride and the bracket broke. I have complained to contour but had no reply. I would not recommend this product at all it was a complete waste of time. I have not been impressed with Contours customer support.

My camera fell off three times in the first four rides, on a road bike and reasonably smooth roads - thankfully the pack contains a leash so it doesn't get lost, but my videos tend to be of the floor and not of the ride. I've now gone back to the helmet mount which is far more secure(so far).

Good mount, wasn't sure how it would go, there's alot of vibration from handlebars and I wondered whether the camera would just wobble continuously. Couldn't have been more wrong and was suprised how well it shot from the mount. It's also a solid fix and the camera won't go anywhere.

A good solid mount, I and my partner have them on our mirror stems as there is limited space on the handlebars, we were worried at first that there would be vibration issues but having used it over a 3 week period through 10 countries in Europe I have to say I'm impressed
