In this i'ble I will show you how to make by yourself two super easy, strong, practical and very cheap bicycle mounts for your cameras.
The full project costs less than 2€ (actually I spent 0€ because I already had a useless bike bell and an unused mini tripod) and it's very fast (I made it in less than 10 minutes).
Althought it's a very easy project, I took some photos so you can understand better the full process.
This mount allows you to set your compact/action camera on your handlebar, on both fork, and also on your bike's frame (where the tube is not too big).
Since the seatpost tube is inclined backwards, this mount doesn't work for it... But don't worry! I made another mount! ;) Go to check it! It's easy, strong and cheap too.
So...LET'S START!! We are losing too much time speaking!! :P
Step 1: Materials and Tools
-cheap mini tripod camera stand (last year I bought two of them for 1€)
-bicycle bell (new, used or broken it's the same)
-4cm x 2mm screw (better if your screw doesn't have a flat head! I'll substitute it)
-2,5cm washer (with the inner hole a little bigger than your nut) see picture
Step 2: The Mini Tripod
Open the tripod legs and carefully unscrew the screw without break or ruin the head of your tripod.
We need only the tripod head and that rubber nut (important because it will prevent camera shaking).
Save the tiny screw and keep the tripod legs for another future cool project ;)
Step 3: The Bicycle Bell - 1st Possibility
We are gonna need just the base of the bell so what you have to do is simply dismount, break, saw, and sand the handlebar grip.
Once you obtain something like what you can see in (photo#3), you can go to the next step!
