This is a handlebar mount for a compact camera for a bicycle. It uses a 6 x 25mm bolt for the camera and a 3 x 30mm bolt and nut to clamp the handlebars.
Video of the result is available here:
Print it! (I reccomend using the raft, the latest model had some curvature on the bottom surface.)
Fit the M3 nut into the hole on the end. I used a heat gun to soften the plastic and then jammed it in. This way it keeps in tightly.
Thread the M6 nut throught the block. Place rubber pad on top (this helps to dampen the vibration)
Thread your camera onto the screw. (Note: the first camera I used was very cheap and had plastic threads which shreaded instantly. ONLY USE CAMERAS WITH METALIC THREADS!!.
*IMPORTANT: slid the hand strap over the handlebars before clipping on the camera (just in case.)
Snap the mount on the handlebars. It should stay where it is without the tightening nut.
