Rated 3 out of 5 by bmaz Almost Good.
Maybe my handlebars are smaller than typical because I have had to use all the included rubber pads to get it to grip my handlebars firmly.
Lastly when biking there is a lot rattling that gets picked up by the mic, it's probably from the waterproof housing bouncing slightly against the mount.

Rated 2 out of 5 by asdfasdfa Not useful
If you want to mount your camera only to a horizontal handle bar, then this is great. If you want to mount it anywhere else on your bike, forget it. The mount is totally inflexible. A minor alteration to include a ball mount so the orientation of the camera could be changed would make this a useful mount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butler Very Sturdy with my AS100
I was worried when I saw the other reviews, but was happy to see my own results. I will share two days of recordings. I attached this to my Harley crash bar and inverted the picture...the videos came out crisp and steady during smooth road conditions. Because it was close to my engine, it did grab some noise, but I was able to cover that with music. My secnd event with this happened this past weekend in Philadelphia where I used my As100(i have 2) mounted to my handlebars for the cycling segment of the TriRock Triathlon. The videos were amazing, hardly any vibration came through on the recordings(except when I hit a major pothole(thanks Philly) and blew out 2 tires during the race). The handlebar mount did not slip at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tino i wish ther was a zero star rating for this
If you think for a second that using this mount will give you the same type of video you see in the sony camera commercial you have something else coming your way. I'm new to using action cams; however, even I know that this is mount is terrible. This mount vibrates so much that having image stabilization in your sony cam becomes worthless. the adjustments are very limited and the mount just feels cheap. Im'm planing in returning mine asap. Save your self the time of buying and returning and just look for a better alternative.

Rated 1 out of 5 by titanmanus Poor quality and performance
I bought this to my new AS15 action cam but I completely disappointed. Full of plastic and the hole diameter is too large. You can put rubber plates in it but it won't be strong just jelly. :( I bought then a Cullmann Cross CC80 + CB2.7 with lower price and it metal and strong as concrete :)

Fundamentally a great mount, but inflexibility of mounting limits use.
Little bit of slack in the adjuster creates vibration....devil in the detail, would have expected more from Sony. Good camera shame about the mounting system. Give me a call Sony.

Rated 2 out of 5 by leogag1 Very unstable
When installed on a road bike handlebar, it holds very well. However, the camera shakes at every single bump or crack on the road because of the "much-too-loose" pivot system that is used for changing the angle of the camera. The concept may be interesting (no need to turn a screw, just push the button) but it is not sturdy enough for the kind of shaking that occurs while riding a bike, being on road or even worse, off road (MTB).

Rated 1 out of 5 by RBarkschat WORTHLESS!
I purchased this several months ago but did not get to use it until this past weekend. Way too long a time to go back and get my money refunded from the retailer I purchased it from. So I am out the money I spent on a completely useless mount.
First off, I tried to mount this to my handlebars of my mountain bike in a space that other accessory mounts fit into. I run drop bars with interrupter levers on my mountain bike, so the space to mount accessories is limited but not small (area between brake mount and stem). This camera mount is too wide where it attached to the bar. I utilized an extender mount, that I have used for my lights, which solved the width problem.
This mount came with three sets of pads to adjust for different diameter handlebars. The 25.4 (1") size of the tube I was mounting it on required me to utilize the fattest pads and one of the thinnest pads to get the mount close to not rotating...I had to wrap some hockey tape around the tube to get the mount solid.
Went out and rode...discovered when I rode over bumps in the trail (not nasty gnar and rocks, just undulations in the smooth trail I was on) the angle adjustment would not hold the camera's weight. I watched as each bump made the angle adjustment click to each stop, until the camera was picking up a really nice picture of my fork and front wheel.
I ended up taking a loop of velcro and strapping the adjustable head of the mount to one position. That worked okay, keeping the camera pointed at the level I wanted it.
Continued riding, went home, and discovered this mount still let in so much vibration (with image stabilization and on a full suspension mountain bike) that it was hard to view the video.
VERY poor design. I was about to purchase other Sony camera mounts, like the Universal helmet/head mount and the chest mount, but I think I will spend the money on an adapter that lets me utilize the mounts made for other cameras, such as Ion, Contour, or Go-Pro.
