Make a Bicycle Camera Mount for $1

Reflector mounts (the things that attach a reflector to your bike) are so cheap that bike shops often give them away for free. Add a standard tripod screw, some washers, and some wing nuts, and you’ll have a super cheap camera mount that you can attach to a bicycle (it’s also a way to attach a camera to some random pole if you need to). You can also find a text version of this tutorial over on Instructables.

    Do not try to connect a heavy camera to this. The reflector bracket isn’t designed to hold weight (a reflector is only a few grams) and you’ll end up with a camera sliding down your handlebars or worse.

    Using 2 reflector mounts gives you the option of cameras that weigh as much as 8 ounces (224 g) without worrying about breakage (too much, but then I always worry about my camera)
