    Cheap Chinese GoPro Accessories: Good or Bad?

    I was looking around for inexpensive GoPro handlebar mounting brackets and saw some inexpensive Chinese mounts on eBay. Are they any good, or complete crap?

    *edit* not sure why "GoPro" and "eBay" were automatically set up as links..

    Here's a link to one.

    Motorcycle Bike Handlebar Seatpost Pole Mount 3 Way Pivot Arm for GoPro Hero 3 | eBay

    I'm sure it will do o.k., but I'm skeptical of how long it will last and how durable it will be.

    I'm looking at getting the aluminum 17-31mm bar mount from this vendor on Amazon

    Amazon.com: TheHeroCompany - Camera & Photo: Electronics

    The price is about half of the k-edge stuff. They also have the plastic mount you linked above.

    While I personally think you can buy from Chinese online store, as if you buy from them once, then you know them reliable or not. While on Ebay it is always hard to tell.

    Do you know geekbuying, a reliable store, there maybe you can find the cheap gadgets you want.

    I just bought one of these K-Edge knock offs and it seems to be almost identical to the real thing I paid 3X as much for. I haven't crash tested it. Yet.
