    Question What is the Most Rugged Bike Mount Available?

    I am looking for a very rugged, durable, shock resistant, as best as is possible, bike mount that will withstand bumps on road surface or while on off road trails? I already have a chest mount and helmet mount, but I'm really looking for something to place on either the seat post or in the handlebar position.

    What is the best option available?

    Please share your thoughts.

    Thanks!!!

    I've found the Minoura to be pretty excellent, easy to get it really solid, and quick release too! here.
    Just because no-one complains doesn't mean that all parachutes are perfect...

    I use the GoPro bike mount and my expectation is it breaks before the more expensive camera case. If you buy a solid mount then the case may break before the mount

    Your Expectation is it will break? What do you mean?

    I ride some rough trails, lots of rocks. If I use a solid mount then the camera case will be the weakest link and break. Iíve broken one mount already from just bouncing around. Mount is cheaper than case.

    For the handlebar on my mountain bike i use a mount similar to this one: https://www.amazon.com/K-EDGE-Handle...andlebar+mount

    To reduce vibration i take an old tube and wrap it around the bar once or twice and then mount the mount over the tube, has help up fairly well. Strong enough to hold the karma grip as well without issue.
