Fitting camera like go-pro to bike.

Underneath cameras is a standard-size threaded hole that takes a tripod or other fitting. First find a screw - about an inch or so long - that fits the thread. Pic one.

Then find an old plastic bike-light fitting that fits handlebars - pic two

This is bolted to handlebars and the camera screw shoved through to screw into camera base. Pic three

Screw will only go so far in so a washer or two will pack it up - also, I've found, a rubber 'O' ring, between camera and washers, stops loads of shake/vibration etc.
Fitted it looks like pic four

The only prob is I can't yet fit waterproof casing which needs special bike/bars fitting - quite a few quid! But so far all okay.
Hope this helps Nordog.
