Here’s the diagram:
Here’s the ingredients:
- Camera (a small point-and-shoot works best)
- A reflector mount, sans reflector. (I get them from my local bike shop.)
- Rubber shims for reflector mount
- 2″x1/4″x20 thread screw (use a 1″x1/4″ x20) for drop style handlebars
- 1/4″ Nut
- 1/4″ wing nut
- 1/4″ metal washer
- Two 1/4″ flat rubber washers
You will need:
- A Phillips screwdriver
- An adjustable wrench
- Unscrew the bolt that came with the reflector mount. Put the rubber shim inside it and mount it on the handlebars with the short tab down. Tighten.
- Put the long bolt up through the front hole (away from the handlebars) of the mount.
- Slide a rubber washer onto the bolt, followed by the metal washer, then the nut. Tighten with the wrench.
- Screw the wingnut onto the bolt, followed by the second rubber washer. Leave about 1/4″ at the top of the bolt to mount your camera.
- Wind camera onto the bolt till it’s tight. Use the wingnut to tighten more as necessary. Hop on your bike and go shoot!

They’re a happy food and they’re great for alleviating tension. I keep several cans on hand for emergencies and high-stress days. They also work pretty well for celebrations.
