Summary

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.

Instructions

Print it! (I reccomend using the raft, the latest model had some curvature on the bottom surface.)

buy:

  • 6 x 25mm bolt
  • 3 x 30m and nut
  • rubber washer

  • 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.

  • Place screw in tightening nut.

Enjoy!
