Poor design doesn't hold firmly
on April 2, 2014
One supposes that anyone with a CAD program these days can call themselves an equipment manufacturer. Don't be fooled by the photo. Though it looks like a good idea, this mount has maddeningly poor functionality.
1) The grip range between the clutch being open and closed is less than a centimeter, so there's no such thing as quick release, as it doesn't open enough to clear the diameter of a handlebar. This wouldn't be such a pain if it actually worked (gripped the bar), but it doesn't. Even with the clutch seriously tightened (to the point of being quite difficult to disengage), the mount still rotated around the handlebar with minimal effort. It's not going to stay put when you're bouncing around.
2) Although the GoPro mount appears to be one solid plastic piece, there's actually a standard 1/4"/20 stud that the GoPro mount screws onto... but the jam nut underneath it cannot really be tightened enough to create confidence that it's not going to loosen and ruin your shot or drop your camera.
3) The 1/4" stud rotates on a knob with click detents, so it it is not infinitely adjustable, and the whole rotator mechanism has quite a bit of play, so that with a camera installed, this adds a significant amount of wobble.
Bad news, this thing. I'm sending mine back.
