    My 3rd GoPro handlebar mount. Can you believe it?

    After having had 3 GoPro handlebar mounts, what I can say is that this is a defective project. There are too many movable parts, and if all of them are used, the camera is placed too high on the handlebar, causing way too much torque as the bike moves. I find it strange that this mount is barely the same after several years. The newer version feature some rubber parts, that can dampen the road buzz a bit, but I lost confidence with this product. I had 2 of these previously: the first broke after a few rides, and the second COULDN'T EVEN LAST A METRIC CENTURY. It broke after the 96th mile, on the very first ride. That's completely unacceptable. The mount requires too much torque in order to keep the camera in place: use less torque, and the camera will point down after a few miles. More torque, and it breaks. I had the issue worked out directly with GoPro, that sent me a chest harness mount instead, that really holds the camera safely, but I found it not appropriate for road biking. So, I bought the 3rd handlebar mount, but installed it differently, according to what I've learned: The ONLY way I managed to trust my camera on this mount was by mounting it on the STEM, and then the camera case directly onto it, not using the other parts and therefore keeping the camera lower and with less torque. It seems the mount will last a bit more this time. I can only recommend if it is installed this way, or in a way that does not required the extra parts.

    Bought new washer & dryer & all new connections & install from Best Buy. Dryer quit working & burning smell. Referred to Whirlpool repair service, quickly serviced dryer & found loose power cord in back of dryer, which was installed by Best Buy. Entire wiring harness burned & needs replaced. Whirlpool does not cover cost of new power cord, since I purchased from Best Buy. Visited store in person & called customer service, only to be told no, it's been past 90 days. At least another week until dryer will be repaired & Best Buy won't even be reasonable & cover the $19.99 power cord they sold & installed poorly. $19.99 power cord unfortunately is going to cost Best Buy a longtime & frequent customer.

    Replacing the last one that broke

    On my 10th day of using this mount - on streets and paths, not rugged mountains - I noticed my camera wobbling as I rode so I went to tighten the screws but they were all secure. I grabbed the camera to steady it and the mount snapped in two. The plastic had simply worn out from the vibrations of the road. I was so fortunate that I saw it when I did or my Go Pro could have flown off and landed under the wheels of a bus. I'll try this replacement but I'm nervous.

    As an Outdoorsman & retired engineer, I find myself often looking "thru and beyond" products for additional uses. The GoPro Ride Hero Handlebar & Seatpost mount is one of those. I have found uses and have attached it to my mower, tractor, wheelbarrow, leaf blower, backpack sprayer, treestand ladders and accessory hanger arms. I've even used it to mount my GoPros to other hunting and outdoor equipment. This attachment is worth its weight in gold ( but you'll have to settle for white, silver & black). What are its downside? Only that I'd love to see a larger package of "parts". Uses are only limited to your imagination and part combinations you can think up; so dream on.

    If you find your camera moving around too much, when you ride or go on a hike. This will be your best buy. I bought the adapter before taking a trip to Costa Rica. I was not disappointed by the performance. While it does add a bit of weight, we're talking a few grams/ounces, don't let this discourage you. It's overall performance was great. The best part - you can attach it to poles of various sizes. I used it during our hikes on a walking-stick. It easily screwed on to the pole giving me an instant boom-arm. I was able to get shots over cliff edges, steady pans, UP high and down LOW shots. Plus neat PoV shots from in front and behind us, while we trekked across the landscape.

    Unlike the roll bar mount, the handlebar mount does not have rubber inserts to grip smooth tubing or at least the one I purchased didn't have one. Maybe a got a bad one as I haven't seen any other reviews about this problem. Anyway I just made my own because on the 1st ride the camera rotated and was pointing at the ground and this was just a test ride on the sidewalk. I do wish the attachment pieces were made from aluminum instead of plastic. Also has a lot of vibration which leads to poor image and sound quality. The skeleton case with external mic may fix the sound but I have to do some more modifying to get useable video.

    Not Just For Bikes

    The Handle Bar Mount has been my most used mount so far. I found that it fits up to 3/4" piping well. Anything over 3/4" and it will not fit within the curved space and you may want to use the Roll Bar Mount. It comes with 2 pivot mounts to help you get the right angle. If you do use these extensions with the camera out too far you may get camera shake and video wobble in a use that has a lot of movement. I added this mount onto a piece of 3/4" PVC pipe and it has been very helpful to get my underwater shots closer to the fish and on land I can reach it up high and get group shots.

    This does what it's supposed to do. Gives you a place to connect your GoPro to your bike. My only criticism is I paid too much - full retail. It went on sale 3 weeks later, and Best Buy would not price match their own product, claiming I was not Elite, so I don't deserve to return items or get price matching for more than 14 days. Talk about making you feel like a second class citizen. Especially when I showed them on my app that I AM elite and get a whole 30 days to price match. They wouldn't accept that and did not price match. Bad policy, Best Buy.

    very stable clamp

    I was surprised at how secure the clamp was once you crank it on there. I use it for my dirtbike, clamping it onto my handlebar. the good thing is that its tight enough to hold the camera steady with all the bouncing around the dirtbike does, BUT I can reach forward and adjust it on the fly just using a bit of hand force but it doesn't cause the whole clamp to come loose. Depending on the application you have to get creative with what clamping method you use, but overall i'm very satisfied with my purchase.

    GoPro Bike Mount works

    The GoPro bike mount works. It is a must have if you want to mount to your bike. There are better helmet and head mounts that won't transfer as much vibration for steady shots. The only thing that I don't like is that it is hard to hand tighten down. The weight of my GoPro 3 Black in a skeleton housing with LED back often sends the camera pointing to the sky when I hit small bumps in the road (only road and paved path). This would be terrible for off road riding. The vibration mixed with the lack of stability would produce some terrible shots.

    Go Pro Handle Bar Mount - a must for bikers

    The GoPro handlebar seat post mount lets you attach your HD HERO or HD HERO2 camera to handlebars, seat posts, ski poles and more. Use the GoPro HD HERO mount to clamp your camera to chain stays, small roll bars, bolt-heads, windsurfing and kitesurfing control bars, or even use it to create a handheld boom with any pole that is within 0.75 to 1.4 inches in diameter. The GoPro HD HERO Mount has pivoting orientation arms allowing for three-way adjustability to ensure you can get the angle you want.

    Great GoPro Mount

    This mount is very flexible and I use it mainly on my bike(s). It can easily mount to the handlebars for a forward view, but I like to stick it in different places for different angles. Under my seat for backwards views, on the downtube for a shot of the front tire bouncing with the shock, and under the seat but in front for a between the legs forward view. I tend to use this mounting bracket the most instead of the chesty or helmet mount which tends to bounce to much for a crisp video..

    Excellent Mount

    Pretty good mount. I've only mounted it to my handlebars and have not tried it on my seat for some rear facing shots. I'm sure it will work just as good though b/c it is adjustable for varying widths. Occasionally I would have to adjust the camera after drops or jumps, b/c you don't want to over-tighten GoPro mounts. Although a little pricier, I've heard/watched a few reviews recommending the roll bar mount instead; I believe that one can be used on bikes and has better/stronger construction.

    I know this is for "handlebars" but it works on anything with a similar shape. I'm going to use it on my mountain bike, motorcycle and truck. I just found another use for it as well, my girlfriend was going to visit her son in FL and wanted to go snorkeling, well we mounted it to the snorkel and now with the waterproof case, we have under water video. If you aim it just right, it will see everything you see, pretty cool. It's a very versatile mount so if you're thinking about it, go for it.

    The clamp fits handle bar and seat post great. I mounted mine on the handle bar stem which is a big diameter. I stopped at the local hardware store to get some longer bolts to make it fit. Just a side note, there are many extensions to mount your go pro. But beware of using too many blessings cause the camera to shake excessively... also use a fine sandpaper like Emory cloth to lightly scuff the connection joints. This will keep the camera more solidly mounted.

    I purchased the handlebar mount to add some interesting points of view to corporate, product, and documentary videos. Overall I am very pleased with the result. I have attached it to many things, among them, a fishing pole and bike handlebars, but is works really well while attaching to any spherical bar or handle. It adds a nice creative touch with lots of versatility of shots. It's also less "permanent" than the adhesive mounts, which is a plus. Overall a good product.

    I really enjoy this mount. It allows me to set my GoPro in various ways. I've used this mount primarily on my bicycle, but also have found ease in attaching it to the headrest rails inside of my vehicle. For the price, I feel like this mount is worth it. Recommended, particularly if you're looking to capture video while riding. My only gripe, and this is just a personal preference, is that the mount doesn't feature a quick release clamp. Otherwise, it's a great mount!

    I ride 4-wheelers alot and wanted to catch videos of me riding and jumping on the 4-wheeler. The handlebar post was just what I was looking for to catch that awesome look of the terrain I ride on while not having my helmet in the picture. I mount it to my front and the rear bumper of my Honda 400EX. After hand tightning the knobs I doesn't move anywhere. I showed my buddies that ride with me and now we all have them mounted on our 4-wheelers!!!! I love it!!!

    Buy the K-edge mount instead

    I bought this because I bought a new GoPro camera and wanted to take bar mounted mountain bike videos. The GoPro branded bar mount is a rip off at $20 and 1/2 of what you get comes with the camera already, so now I have duplicates of some parts and feel like I overpaid for the one piece that is needed to mount the camera on the handlebar. GoPro should go back to the drawing board on this product and just copy K-edge's design like Garmin did on their bike mount.

    I use this on my road bike and have the mount just to the left of center. Try bar mount piece is solid and does not slip. You have to use of the assecory pieces to mount go pro so it points forward. That piece is tuff to keep upright w/o slipping. If I'm going fast on a downhill or something the vibrations always loosen the mount and the go pro dips down. I generally have to re tighten throughout the ride to keep it pointing forward
