I like to ride my bicycle. I also like photography. Combining photography and bicycles doesn't always work though. If you don't have any large pockets in your clothing you have the problem of storing your camera when you aren't taking pictures. Taking pictures while biking doesn't always work either if you don't want to stop your bike, take your bulky camera out of your oversized pocket, turn the camera on, take the picture, and resecure you camera in your pocket.
I thought about these problems and came up with the perfect solution, the Bicycle Camera Tripod...
Step 1: Get Your Supplies
To make a Camera Tripod for your bicycle, you will need a few parts. All of them are pretty low cost. You probably already have most of the supplies.
-Bicycle- You probably already have one of these, especially if you're reading this Instructable.
-Camera- The key to making this project work is for your camera to have a place that you can screw onto a tripod.
-Small Tripod- The tripod I used came with a toy telescope that I found in the toy section of a discount clothing store (Marshalls, TJ Max, etc. I forget which one I got it from). The telescope is completely useless for looking at stuff, but the tripod that the telescope was attached to was very useful for this project. It stands about a foot tall and is easily adjustable. The telescope/tripod cost me about $5.00.
-Zip Ties- I used these to attach the tripod to the bicycle.
