As far as camera position is concerned, it is better than flex strap and offers more options for adjusting the view. The downside is it is not as firm as the flex strap. Susceptible to shifting if you bump on the camera or when turning Camera on/off.

I decided to use it for road bike and the sturdier flex strap on the Harley. Wish it was as rigid as the flex strap. Would still recommend this over the flex strap on a road bike because it allows camera to be easily adjusted while cycling.

Attached without difficulty to my handlebars. Was worried I'd get a fair amount of camera shake, but was surprised to find good smooth video quality even on slightly bumpy paths (front suspension on your bike will help here). Fairly easy to slide the camera on and off, and the adjustable tension knob keeps it in place nicely when tightened.

This device absolutely gets the job done for your Contour camera. Be advised that there is a piece that can easily screw off that connects the bar mount and the camera mount (shown at the top in the image). I lost mine (stolen or from when I took a spill - not sure when, but it was missing one day), and they do not sell this part separately.

VIDEO: From many different video clips under different conditions, the image is stable and does not shake (city riding).

AUDIO: There can sometimes be an odd rattling/shaking sound in the audio after you import your footage. Most noticeable when going over bad bumps or other such terrain.

STABILITY: Stays installed securely. My old one is installed with a screwdriver, the newer ones seem to use an Allen wrench.

APPEARANCE: Looks a bit clunky. Could be better, but really not that bad. I installed mine upside down on the handlebar so it doesn't protrude up.

INSTALLING: Very easy to install. The cushion helps a lot with thinner handlebars and also assists in the reduction of shaking.

Recommended.

My Contour Roam slides in and out easily and the mount holds it solid and the videos are quite steady taken from my rigid mountain bike even on rough single track.

Feels secure and tight on my motorcycle's handlebars. Great to have a backup tether built in in case the rotating mount fails.

I've been wearing my Contour Roam on my helmet and am getting ready for a looonng trip and didn't want the extra weight on my neck. This fits my handlebars perfectly (1"). It's a little difficult getting the camera mounts lined up, expecially with the safety clip on the mount which has to be pushed down while mounting or removing the camera. That same clip feels like it will break if I push down too hard. But, after having used it many times now I think my fear of it breaking was unwarranted.

I also expected to have too much vibration in the video. This too was unwarranted. Though I can see the vibration of the handlebars while I'm riding, when I play back the video it's almost non-existent. Great mount and I highly recommend it.

I bought to mount my new Contour Roam 2 to the handlebar of my Royal Star Tour Deluxe; it has to share available space with a rather large Zumo GPS unit, a cellphone mount, a 2-way radio speaker, and a three-switch box; there's not a lot of room left. It fit comfortably beside the GPS unit, and the head allowed me to level the camera in spite of that section of handlebar being canted backwards and upward. It saved me the expense of a RAM mount (which the GPS required). and seems adequate to the task of keeping the Contour (a comparatively light unit) in place and properly oriented. I'll amend this if problems occur, but historically any shortcomings with this type mount reveal themselves at the time they're mounted, that simply didn't happen.

It does hold your camera on the bike, but the rotating ball design isn't strong enough to hold its position over bumps. Pot holes make the camera tilt down so you keep re-adjusting it as you ride. I tightened the set knob as much as I could, still didn't work over big bumps. I ended up supergluing it once I had it in the right spot. Stays put now, but I wonder if the thin plastic will completely fail at some point.

The camera mount performs well. It survived a 10 mile mountain bike ride with out any major issues. My only concern is it is just a little bit too loose. I had to adjust the position a couple times during the ride.

This is a great Contour mount for Road bikes and Mountain bikes the camera slides in and locks into place, you can mount it about anywhere,fork,handle bars,seatpost, foward or rear facing.
Its well made and very easy to attach with an allen wrench.

Tri-bike(triathlon bikes) riders you will be VERY limited as to where you can mount it, I ride an Orbea Ora and the only place i found was between my aerobars on my stem. I have profile design T2 handle bars and the clamp wasnt designed to go around pancake style bars. Thr front fork is carbon and bladed so again,no luck,rear drops were too skinny, seatpost is bladed & carbon too.

I think im going to pick up another contour and get a helmet mount to coinside with this set-up but the handle bar mount sure is fun and gives a great point of view.

Ride Safe out there!
