How to shock proof a GoPro mount on your bike fork
I wanted a GoPro mount robust enough to resist the shocks to be mounted in the fork of my mountain bike.
- GoPro Tripod mount
- 1 single-use pack of Sugru
- L shaped metal bracket
- GoPro to mount on
- Cling film
I put some cling film around the fork to avoid Sugru from sticking to it.
Make two small balls with Sugru and put it into the L shaped metal bracket then put it in the fork and hold it in that position during 12-24 hours.
I put the plastic because I only wanted the Sugru to have the round shape of the fork but I didn't want to stick it to it so I can move the device to other round part of my bike.
Put some Sugru in the base of the GoPro tripod mount to have more grip and let it set for 12-24 hours.
Once the Sugru has set, hold it with your hand in the correct position and use the clamp to secure it firmly.
I used some old inner tube to cover it and avoid scratching the fork.
I used a 1/4"-20 UNC screw to hold the tripod mount in place.
The end result!
