Summary

With this handlebar mount you can mount your Gopro Hero camera on the handlebar of your mountain bike.

I've designed this handelbar mount for rough terrain, so it has thick edges and two mounting surfaces that attach to the handlebar. The mount also has a horizontal bar that prevents the mount from tilting down due to hard impacts or vibrations. The dimensions of the mount are about 8,4 cm (w) x 8,6 cm (h) x 7,24 cm (d). The total volume of all the parts is 253,92 mc3. The STL files are checked and repaired with Netfabb.

I don't have a 3D printer yet, so I hope that someone prints out my design and makes some good use of it! If you do print my mount I would really like to see some pictures of the result and some gopro footage!

Instructions

-Besides the printed parts, you need 4 bolts (5,6 mm thread, 9,8 mm cap) and 4 nuts (5,6 mm thread, 9,8 mm);
-Put some rubber (old inner bike tube) between the mounting surfaces and the handlebar. This gives more grip and reduces vibrations;

Please feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments!

If you would, please post more details on the dimensions of the handlebars this is designed for. It drew my interest for use on a motorcycle, but the bar circumference is likely different, as well as the way the bars are affixed to the neck.

You can load the .stl files in netfabb and measure all the dimensions you need. But i think it will be difficult to put it on a motorcycle handelbar

That's really nice dude!

Thanx man! To bad i can not try the mount out for myself though :)
