Looking for suggestions for a handlebar mount for attaching a GoPro Hero that is as good or better, but preferably a good deal cheaper than a genuine one.
Thanks in advance
I use the K-Edge Go Big mount on my handlebars. Not particularly cheap, but rock solid.
Stem cap mount any good ?
a couple of very interesting options there, thanks
do you have a wahoo or garmin computer? you can get replacement mounts for those that have an under slung gopro mount built in
hmm, no, I have a Lezyne gps though. will do some research, thanks
Would a handlebar mount vibrate and jump too much?
maybe, though I see plenty of cycling videos that look pretty good and I imagine the camera is bar mounted. I'm not sure helmet mounted would be better, possibly a bit uncomfortable on a long ride?
You can buy a selection of OEM go pro mounts on Ebay very cheaply.
For example at £3.99
Look at eBay item number:252103540263
From my experience ignore the go pro knockoff mounts on ebay. I found the plastic was quite brittle and breaks easy.

In my experience a handlebar mount is more stable than a helmet mount (almost anything is, in my opinion, unless the wearer is skilled at using their head as a tripod - most aren't) but it does tend to have an almost continuous side to side wobble simply because you're almost always making tiny adjustments to the steering to stay upright.
I use a chest harness like this one from Decathlon:
It's the most stable I've yet found for activities like cycling and skiing, although it's fairly rubbish for walking - you don't realise how much you go up and down as you walk until you watch footage shot using a rig like that.

Some do seem to be fairly rubbish. Trouble is, it's difficult to know which are the OK ones and which are the poor ones.
Stick it on your helmet mount. This has the added benefit of looking like a teletubby, you will be the envy of every three year old!
